The NFHS Network announced today a partnership with the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) to deliver additional post-season coverage of Virginia Independent high school sports to fans.
VISAA events selected by the NFHS Network will be streamed live and available for viewing on demand at NFHSnetwork.com.. The NFHS Network will provide post-season coverage for many of the lead-up events to VISAA Championships with a broad coverage of all sports throughout the year. DVDs for most events will also be available for purchase.
“We proudly welcome the VISAA to the NFHS Network, which has become the primary destination for high school sports online broadcasting over 40,000 events,” said Robert Rothberg, NFHS Network President. “In addition, our newly redesigned site provides an improved consumer experience with a responsive design optimized for Mobile viewing, the ability for users to clip and share highlights from their events and integrated live scores and stats.”
As part of this relationship, all Virginia independent high schools are encouraged to participate in the NFHS Network School Broadcast Program, which provides schools with the broadcasting technology, stat tracking apps, training and support to enable students to broadcast their regular season games and other high school events. Through this program over 11,000 schools use the NFHS Network video broadcasting technology platform and the Digital Scout stat tracking apps.
“We are very pleased to join the NFHS Network,” stated Dick Kemper, Executive Director of the VISAA. “This partnership enables the student broadcasters and the featured athletes to showcase the excellence of their schools and their accomplishments to fans far and wide.”
Last year, students produced over 20,000 events that were broadcast on the NFHS Network. In addition to offering valuable learning opportunities for students, participating schools also receive a share of the subscription fees from the events they produce. The NFHS Network returned over $100,000 in revenue to high schools during the past year.
The NFHS Network captures the passion, pride, and energy of the high school experience by delivering live high school sports and events to family members and fans whenever they want, wherever they are.
The NFHS Network celebrates and showcases the unique accomplishments of students, whether they are a student-athlete participating in the 27 different sports covered by the Network, or one of the student broadcasters from schools around the country that produce events through the School Broadcast Program.
All NFHS Network events are available online at NFHSnetwork.com. Follow the NFHS Network on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram at @NFHSnetwork for the latest news and event information.
