Sideline Etiquette

  • Stay behind the media line (or if no visible line, stay a minimum of 3 yards off the playing field/ out of bounds line.)

  • Stay out of the referee paths.

  • Do not enter the team boxes. This is generally the area between the 20 yard lines. This area is clearly marked with box lines.

  • Never use a tripod while working the sidelines. Monopods are recommended for large lenses.

  • Be cognizant of cables from video/TV cameras, especially the sideline remote videographers.

  • Never stand directly behind a kneeling or standing photographer. If he/she has to move suddenly to avoid getting hit by players, you may impair their movement.

  • Be courteous and polite.
