EAST LANSING, Mich. – Sept. 1 – A growing number of games can be followed on the MHSAA.tv  website as more schools begin to stream their game statistics live using Digital Scout.

Digital Scout enables schools to enter statistics while a game is in progress on mobile devices – such as phones and tablets, and fans can follow along on their own handhelds or on laptops or desktop computers with a subscription to the NFHS Network.  The software is free for schools to use, and available for football, basketball and volleyball.

Live stats were available for over 40 football games on opening weekend, and one game had both live stats and video from a school participating in the MHSAA’s School Broadcast Program.  A number of volleyball matches were also available.

In its seventh year, the School Broadcast Program gives members an opportunity to showcase excellence in their schools by  creating video programming of athletic and non-athletic events; with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, directing/producing and graphics. 

The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.  

All sporting events – live or delayed - are available on a subscription basis only for their first 72 hours online.  They become available for free, on-demand viewing approximately 72 hours following their completion.

Here’s the schedule of School Broadcast Program members planning to stream competition this week for broadcast at MHSAA.tv  (As of Aug. 31):

Wyoming at Comstock Park – Football – Thursday – 7 p.m. – LIVE
East Kentwood at East Lansing – Football – Thursday – 7 p.m. – On-Demand Following Game
Goodrich at Flint Kearsley – Football – Thursday – 7 p.m. – LIVE
Blanchard Montabella at Pinconning – Football – Thursday - 7 p.m. – On-Demand Following Game
Holt at Rockford – Football – Thursday – 7 p.m. – LIVE 

Several schools joined the School Broadcast Program over the Summer – the Detroit Catholic High School League, Flint Kearsley, Holly, Livonia Stevenson, Marquette, and Midland Dow – bringing the total number of members to 63.  Of this group, Flint Kearsley will be live streaming its first event on Thursday.  More SBP programming is expected once students hit the classroom for the new year next week.  A complete list of participating schools can be found on the School Broadcast Program page of the MHSAA website. 

Schools interested in becoming a part of the School Broadcast Program should contact John Johnson at the MHSAA Office.
