EAST LANSING, Mich. - June 6 - Five MHSAA tournament games have been added to the live schedule on MHSAA.tv this week, being produced by members participating in the School Broadcast Program.
The Division 2 Lower Peninsula Girls Soccer Regional at Cedar Springs will have all of its games streamed by the SBP at that school. Here's the schedule:
Tonight (June 6)
Thursday (June 8)
Cedar Springs will also stream the Division 3 Girls Soccer Semifinal between the winners of the Clare and Grand Rapids South Christian Regionals on June 13 at 6 p.m.
Wednesday's (June 7) Semifinal games at East Lansing High School in the Girls Lacrosse Tournament will also be streamed. Here's the schedule:
"One of the things we ask of our SBP member schools is that they stream any tournament contest which takes place on their campus, even if they are not participating," said John Johnson, MHSAA Communications Director. "We appreciate the work of schools like Cedar Springs and East Lansing to provide this content for MHSAA.tv."
A $9.95 subscription allows viewing of live content on MHSAA.tv and the NFHS Network for 30 days. On Saturday (June 10), the Finals of the Boys & Girls Lacrosse Tournaments will be shown live. Next weekend, MHSAA Finals in Lower Peninsula Girls Soccer (June 16-17) and Semifinals and Finals in Baseball and Softball (June 15-17) will be streamed live. All events will be archived for free on-demand viewing, beginning three days after their completion. Subscriptions must be cancelled before the 30-day period is over to avoid recurring charges.
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.
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.
