Light to kick off sports Web site


Be the first to participate in The Light’s exclusive sports Web site.

The paper is getting ready to launch a new outlet for youth, club, prep and adult sports teams to share their results, news and photos in print and online with the La Jolla community.

Organizations can create sports pages for each team and online sports sections for their leagues by uploading their own scores, photos, statistics and more.

The Light has teamed with CommunitySportsDesk (a national sports software and service company) to help create La Jolla Community Sports. We’re looking forward to getting more sports news in our newspaper and online at

It’s a great way for school, recreation and club sports to enhance visibility and share news with the community. Sports teams will be able to use our simple administrative page to upload photos and statistics for us not only online, but in the printed Light.

Once La Jolla Community Sports goes live, there will be an icon on the Light’s home page and a special link on the sports dropdown menu that will link you directly to the page. The site is expected to be up and running by September, your sports information is needed!


to be added to the contact list.

Our CommunitySportsDesk partners will be contacting coaches, league directors and team mangers to get the information they need to build the team’s profile. They’ll be starting those calls right away and setting people up with secure user names and passwords so they can update their pages anytime.

CommunitySportsDesk’s team will show league and team administratorseveryone how user-friendly the process is and answer questions about the site.

League information will appear immediately on the Web site and we’ll do our best to get as much as it can into the Light each week.
