Supporting Role Seminars, Up First: Ring Announcers and Commentators


The main purpose of RISE is and always will be Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes, building a pipeline of talent for all women’s wrestling. World Class Development Seminars and Live Events for women wrestlers will continue to be the backbone of our business model.

Another facet of our business model is to help develop roles for supporting talents in non-wrestling capacities, open to women and to men.

A few roles for which there is no wrestling business-centric school would be those of Ring Announcers and Commentators. So those two roles will be the subject matter of our first Supporting Role Seminar, Putting Over It All – Ring Announcing and Commentary Camp.

This training opportunity sponsored by RISE and facilitated by Kevin Harvey will have its first outing in the first quarter of 2017. The training will consist of 3-4 hours of training with a cost of $25. The first seminar will likely take place in the greater Chicago area. However, based on demand and where our prospective participants live, that is subject to change or possibly occurring in multiple geographic areas.

If you are an experienced ring announcer or commentator or you are looking to start on the path toward those positions, please email, Subject – Putting Over It All Interest.
