EAST LANSING, Mich. – Jan. 9 – With the winter sports season fully underway, StateChamps! High School Sports Show returns with new weekly editions debuting each Sunday at 9 a.m. on Fox Sports Detroit – featuring a fresh series of messages called the MHSAA Minute.
The MHSAA Minute takes a look each week at different things happening in the life of the Association, from promoting educational programs to rules changes in high school sports. The first of two messages will air this week on high school rules changes in basketball. Archived editions of MHSAA Minute can be found on the StateChamps! YouTube Channel.
This week’s schedule of high school sporting events on MHSAA.tv produced by Association members taking part in the School Broadcast Program features 100 contests.
A total of 57 games at the varsity level are on the schedule for this week, with more to be added as the week progresses. Be sure to check Upcoming Events on the MHSAA.tv home page daily for last-minute additions.
In its ninth 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. Pixellot – The NFHS Network’s automated streaming solution - is used by schools wishing to live stream games, but lack the ability to staff the events. The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.
Here’s this week’s MHSAA.tv schedule of video streams available being produced by SBP members:
Tuesday - Jan. 9
Wednesday - Jan. 10
Thursday - Jan. 11
Friday - Jan. 12
Saturday - Jan. 13
Monday - Jan. 15
Tuesday - Jan. 16
Wednesday - Jan. 17
NFHS Network subscriptions begin at $9.95 a month. 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. School Broadcast Program participants will also be selling Season and 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.
