EAST LANSING, Mich. – May 9 – After a week where most of its games were washed out to weather conditions, members of the MHSAA’s School Broadcast Program are back at it again this week with a slate of over a dozen games scheduled for viewing on MHSAA.tv.
In its eighth 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 this week’s MHSAA.tv schedule of live video streams available being produced by SBP members (All times Eastern):
Tuesday, May 9
Thursday, May 11
Friday, May 12
Monday, May 15
Tuesday, May 16
Be sure to check the Upcoming Events page at MHSAA.tv for schedule updates every day.
The NFHS Network has announced new pricing for 2016-17, eliminating the Day Pass and lowering the cost of a Month Pass to $9.95. Subscribers will have access to all live video and streaming statistics across the country. All content becomes available for free, on demand viewing 72 hours after being shown live. Some schools will also be selling Annual Passes at a discounted rate. A portion of every subscription sold by a school goes to benefit its program.
A complete list of participating schools can be found on the School Broadcast Program page of the MHSAA website.
A weekly staple on the MHSAA.tv website and the MHSAASports Channel on YouTube is back for the spring season with highlights of selected games last week produced by members of the Association’s School Broadcast Program.
This week’s highlights package consists of clips of a Girls Lacrosse game with DeWitt at East Lansing; a Girls Soccer match between Fowlerville at Williamston; and a baseball game between Mt. Morris at Montrose.
Schools interested in becoming a part of the School Broadcast Program should contact John Johnson at the MHSAA Office.
The MHSAA is a private, not-for-profit corporation of voluntary membership by more than 1,400 public and private senior high schools and junior high/middle schools which exists to develop common rules for athletic eligibility and competition. No government funds or tax dollars support the MHSAA, which was the first such association nationally to not accept membership dues or tournament entry fees from schools. Member schools which enforce these rules are permitted to participate in MHSAA tournaments, which attract more than 1.4 million spectators each year.
