Live Video for Social Distancing in Youth Sports

COVID-19 has had a dramatic impact on every aspect of our lives, and we work to find a “new normal” for everything we do. Sports at all levels have been particularly ravaged, from youth sports to the professional level. For most high schools and colleges, fall sporting activities have been cancelled entirely.

If your teams have returned to the field, strict safety procedures are likely required to protect players, coaches, and spectators. Two key components in safety protocols are limiting (or eliminating) the number of spectators and social distancing, or as we refer to it in the world of sports – spectator distancing. While these precautions are necessary, they limit the ability for people to enjoy watching the games. So, what’s the solution?

It turns out a solution is already available and in use all across America – live streaming video. By live streaming sporting events, anyone who is connected to the Internet can enjoy watching games.  If your league, school or complex doesn’t have a live streaming system, it’s up to you to find the best system available that provides all the features you want in a live streaming video system and is affordable. If you already have a system in place, you must ensure that it satisfies all your requirements, since live streaming your sporting events is now more important than ever.

We’re not talking about mounting a camera or two around the areas where your sporting events take place. Leagues, schools and sports complexes need professional installations of feature-rich, live streaming solutions that are high quality, affordable, and customized for your unique location.

The best live streaming solution available today is GoDog GameStream. GoDog Sports is not a camera vendor that “sets it and forgets it.” We are a service partner and developed GoDog GameStream as a managed service, meaning we scope your sports venue(s), manage the install and work under flexible business models tailored to your needs.

GoDog GameStream offers more than any other live stream video system for sports in the industry. With GoDog GameStream you get:

GoDog GameStream is focused on customer satisfaction, and the only way we can do that is by working closely with you before, during, and after the installation. We don’t take a cookie cutter “take it or leave it” approach. We customize everything to suit the needs of our clients large or small. Whether you’re a single field youth sports league, a massive sports complex, or a school with multiple indoor and outdoor sporting venues, we will custom tailor a live streaming video solution that’s right for your location.

We start by scoping your location, during a Zoom and Google Maps session scheduled at your convenience. For indoor venues like basketball, swimming, and volleyball, we can work with photos and videos. Once we know more about your location, we figure out the best system and configuration for your needs and budget. Then, we complete the installation at your facility. We also train personnel on your portal admin tools and monitor your feeds to maintain uptime. Our operations team lives by the motto: “We Install. You Stream!”

If you already have a system in place, it might be time to update your system with GoDog GameStream. We can assess your current system and installation and show you how easy and affordable it can be to get a serious upgrade and offer a better experience to everyone.

We know that COVID-19 isn’t going away any time soon, and even after a vaccine is developed and implemented, a reduction in crowd sizes will become the “new normal.” GoDog GameStream is long-term solution for you to maintain social distancing and still provide a way for everyone to enjoy the action.
