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.

You already know that live streaming youth sports is no longer a nice to have; it’s an expected service and a great way to differentiate your sports venue. Mounting a camera on the backstop may record part of the field, but it won’t get all the action and doesn’t stream live to all families. Sports complexes need professional installation for an affordable price that is custom made for youth sports. And now the next wave of live streaming innovation is coming to market for leagues, schools, and tournament complexes across America, with incredible features that take the live streaming experience to a whole new level.

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.

Here are a few things to watch out for when assessing live streaming.

  • Are you dealing with a full-service provider or a basic camera vendor?
  • Do they provide custom installation to ensure camera placement / angles are the best for your facility, or do they simply ship you a camera and require you to figure out how to best install?
  • Do they provide you with a revenue share on all services? Is an app required to view the experience and if so, what are the app store ratings?
  • Have you watched cameras at a provider’s venue to make sure the picture isn’t a coke bottle or fish barrel lens, like a security camera?
  • Worse, are their cameras off center or crocked from a foul ball or basketball hit to the lens, and gone unadjusted?
  • Are the streams high quality?
  • Do they have user sign up and registration, so you know who is watching your youth athletes?
  • Are highlight creation and game downloads built right in?
  • Do they enable you to advertise and get sponsors?
  • Can they cover every field or court with connectivity or are you limited to only a subset of fields because your internet can’t reach every location?
  • Are you dealing with a pro / college camera solution trying to sell into the youth market?
  • Most important, are they affordable?

GoDog GameStream was built for youth sports by youth sports dads with a track record in technology and the wireless service provider industries. We offer the highest quality video, manage all installs, monitor your feeds, include user registration, exclusively offer ViaSat high speed satellite internet to reach every location and are highly rated by all customers.

These are moments you don’t want to miss, and now you don’t have to thanks to real time live streaming.

Paying for Live Video Streaming at Youth Sports Leagues is Easier Than You Think!

What are families saying about GoDog GameStream?

Live streaming youth sporting events is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after technologies by youth sports leagues and schools across the country. GoDog GameStream and their HD broadcast system is emerging as an industry favorite, utilizing satellite technology to deliver the broadcast, which is a unique and exciting game changer.

However, one of the challenges faced by youth sports leagues and schools is the cost of installing an HD broadcast system and maintaining it. While most live streaming solutions cost between $10,000 and $50,000 to install, GoDog GameStream has packages from only $1,995. Working closely with leagues and schools who installed GoDog GameStream in California, the GoDog Sports team has now identified the most popular ways a league or school can afford their system and reap all the benefits that come with it.

3 Ways to Help Fund the GoDog GameStream System

The GoDog GameStream system provides a long list of valuable benefits and functionality, fromon-site high-speed Internet and crystal-clear HD video streaming to completely secure viewing portals and revenue generating capabilities. But the first step is getting it installed at your facility.Don’t let the initial costs steer you away! Here are three ways that GoDog GameStream can be surprisingly affordable.

Get Square and Get Funding!
GoDog GameStream has partnered with Square to help offset the cost of installation and theongoing maintenance fee through the GoDog Sports exclusive “Fund-a-Field” program. With every Square account, Square will launch a FREE fund-raising web page for your league or school that allows family and friends to donate to fund the GoDog GameStream system. And, your league or school can launch your own Square spirit wear store with proceeds going to fund your GameStream system. It’s amazing how fast it adds up!

A Modest Dues Increase
We understand the costs of running a league and the commitment required for parents and families to participate in youth sports. But for a 400-player league, the GoDog Game Streamsystem install is just $4.99 per player! In fact, through a modest dues increase, GoDog GameStream can act as a fundraiser for your league. By increasing dues by $10 per family, your league will net up to $2,000 per year after the cost of GoDog GameStream. Leagues generally raise fees every year, but often families don’t experience any new features. Based on feedback from leagues who added GoDog GameStream, adding this live streaming service will be viewed by all as a giant leap forward for your league.

“It’s perfect for parents who work late and can’t be at the games,” says Mark Benavides, board member of the West Covina America Little League. “The kids like to go back, watch past games and record clips of them making a good play or getting a big hit. These are memories they can keep,” Mark goes on. “The cost was only $10 per family for the entire year, and the GoDog team helped get Internet into our snack bar.”

GoDog Sports can help you present this idea to your league by
contacting them here. The benefits are incredible!

Sponsor Advertising
The GoDog GameStream system is designed to incorporate sponsor advertising. For example, for a 400-player league, you can expect to sell $2,000 per year in pre-roll video and on-screen digital sponsorships. This can pay for the entire system with no out-of-pocket costs to your league or school.

Creative Fund Raising
Every youth sports organization is different. We know because we are all youth sports parents, former players, and just love youth sports. We will work with you to develop unique,creative ways to raise money. Some recent sponsorships include a Home Run Derby, whereeach participant enters a fee to compete, with the proceeds going to fund GoDog GameStream. Or we can sponsor a drink cup fund, where GoDog Sports buys league water bottles that families purchase and get free refills all year at the snack bar.

CUSTOMER INTERVIEW: Little League Board Member Discusses Experience with GoDog GameStream

A new era in live streaming youth sporting events began this spring in southern California at multiple sports fields utilizing GoDog GameStream and their HD broadcast system. Live streaming youth sports is quickly becoming popular and utilizing satellite technology to deliver the broadcast is a unique and exciting game changer.

A new era in live streaming youth sporting events began this spring in southern California at multiple sports fields utilizing GoDog GameStream and their HD broadcast system. Live streaming youth sports is quickly becoming popular and utilizing satellite technology to deliver the broadcast is a unique and exciting game changer.

One of the early adopters of the GoDog technology is the Sherman Oaks Little League, just outside of Los Angeles, California. Azzie Mackenzie, a board member of the league, offered a few thoughts on GoDog GameStream and reaction from the league and families.

What are families saying about GoDog GameStream?

AM: Families love it. The live streaming is by far the most talked about thing at the league this year. My kids have their friend’s games on at home literally every day. But being able to enjoy the games from afar is the biggest plus.

Once the GoDog system was up and running, family members from around the world were able to watch games on their computers, phones, and even mirror it on their big screen televisions.  Often, they’re seeing their grandkids play for the first time.

I’ve heard most from working parents who can now watch their son or daughter play games from work or while traveling. One of our coaches couldn’t be here last week, and he was watching from an airport on the east coast. He was able to watch his team play and even had some random people comment on how crystal clear the video was. Another parent had two games up on his PC monitors at work while both his kids were pitching at the same time in two different games. Across the board, everyone has been impressed with the quality of the feed and happy to be able to see their kids playing.

What made you decide to install a live stream system?

AM: Ever since live streaming was available, parents were asking about it. But it was never affordable, and it was a hassle to set up equipment and get someone to operate it.

Then we met the team from GoDog who showed us their system and it was incredible. Once approved, they came in and had everything set up and deployed the same week.  All parents had to do was register and login to the GoDog website portal to start watching games.

What are some of the things you like most about GoDog GameStream?

AM: I like the control we have. We can turn cameras and audio on and off anytime we want from our admin web interface. There’s also a scheduler where we can set times for cameras to turn on and off. We can also ensure only league members and their friends and family can watch games. People have to register first and then can invite their family members to join. Other systems let anyone watch kids without any kind of registration, which we wanted to avoid.

We also have the option of adding local advertising to the system, so anyone who’s sponsoring the league can get more exposure and eyeballs from people watching the game.

Some of the other features are great, too, like having guaranteed Wi-Fi Internet. The satellite system GoDog uses creates a league-wide Internet hotspot. This is really convenient for siblings who have tablets, for our parents who score GameChanger and you can even make WiFi calls through the hotspot.

Also, from a league perspective we like that GoDog handles any customer care questions from both the league and our families. We are all volunteers, so we look for partners and systems that are as plug-and-play as possible.

Getting Started with GoDog GameStream

GoDog GameStream starts with the custom installation of HD cameras and state-of-the-art satellite Internet, which usually takes less than one day, and they can install the system anywhere kids are playing sports. Then youth sports leagues can broadcast their games with a crystal clear, 1080p video stream.  Friends and family can watch live games on a computer, tablet, or phone from anywhere in the world that has an Internet connection.

Here’s what a GoDog GameStream installation looks like:

-A GoDog representative scopes the facility with a league rep. This includes taking measurements, locating power, where equipment will be located and more.

-Next the GoDog rep identifies the best dish location to cover all fields – GoDog satellite Internet is 100% dedicated bandwidth for the streaming needs of customers.

-Then, GoDog identifies the ideal location for cameras, which for baseball fields is typically at the backstop. Rectangular fields for football, soccer, and basketball are mid-field, with a special 180 degree camera that features 4 lenses for high definition detail across the entire field.

-Finally, GoDog schedules the install crew and launches the system on the same day.

It’s that easy.

GoDog is Changing the Game

GodDog GameStream is Changing the Game for Live Streaming Youth Sports Question, and it’s not a trick question… what’s the one thing you see at every sporting event that involves the kids and parents, regardless of the type of sport.

GodDog GameStream is Changing the Game for Live Streaming Youth Sports

Question, and it’s not a trick question… what’s the one thing you see at every sporting event that involves kids and parents, regardless of the type of sport or location of the event, and doesn’t involve yelling, screaming, and crying?

Answer: People recording the event with their phone rather than actually watching it.

“Well, I had to record it,” they might say. Good for them, but the bottom line is that they missed actually seeing the game, and Murphy’s Law dictates that the one time they forgot to record was when their son or daughter had a big play.

Now, with GoDog GameStream, they’ll never miss a thing.

What is GoDog GameStream?

Whether or not you’ve heard about GoDog GameStream and what it offers, you’re probably here because you have kids, work with kids, manage a kid’s sports league, are responsible for kids, and have an interest in youth sports.

GoDog GameStream has the answer. In a nutshell, GoDog GameStream is a youth sports live video streaming service.

We install permanent HD camera(s) at little league baseball fields, sports complexes and other sporting venues (anywhere, really), so people can watch on their computer, tablet, or phone from anywhere in the world, via live streaming.

We use state-of-the-art technology to overcome two challenges faced by the families and friends of young athletes. First, for those spectators at the actual event, they no longer have to watch the action through their phone hoping they capture their son or daughter’s big play at just the right moment. Now, let GoDog GameStream do the work so you can enjoy the game in person! Second, when they can’t be there in person, GoDog GameStream gives parents, family and friends a way to watch and save amazing sports moments in their kids’ lives.

Live-Streaming Youth Sports Just Got Easier and Affordable

GoDog GameStream is Changing Live-Streaming Youth Sporting Events

All too often youth sports games take place when parents are at work or traveling.

Grandparents, relatives and friends who live out of town may never have a chance to make to a game.

The answer is live-streaming youth sporting games, and thanks to advancing technologies, live streams are becoming more common, so those who can’t be there in person can watch the action via the Internet.

Unfortunately, live-streaming is still only available at select facilities and can be cost-prohibitive for schools, leagues, and tournaments.

Plus, even if live-streaming is available, it can be difficult to know how to watch, and the viewing experience falls flat.

In most cases “live-streaming” is literally in the hands of those attending the games who try to use their phones to capture that big play when it suddenly happens.

Coaches often try and provide video, but they have to have access to professional

equipment, spend time setting it up, and have someone available to operate it.

Enter GoDog GameStream, a new way to live stream youth sporting events that is easy for sports leagues, schools, sports complexes and facilities to set up, has tons of cool features, and in many cases can pay for itself.

What is GoDog GameStream?

GoDog GameStream was created by people like you – coaches, school officials, youth league directors, and parents.

We were tired of missing games, missing our kid’s experiencing their first homerun or big play, and trying to “watch” games through GameChanger.

We saw a need that wasn’t being filled by any of the few live streaming video services, so we decided to build our own system, GoDog GameStream.

GoDog GameStream is a unique live stream video broadcasting system. We focus exclusively on broadcasting and recording youth sports.

And because we watch our own kids, we designed a system that covers all the bases.

First, we install HD camera(s) at ball fields, venues, sport complexes… virtually anywhere kids play sports.

Then, using dedicated state-of-the-art satellite Internet, we broadcast a crystal clear, high definition video stream from every field, so people can watch youth sporting events on a computer, tablet, or phone from anywhere in the world that has an Internet connection. Finally, we record

each event so families, friends, players, and coaches can watch the action again and again, and create, save and share highlights.

But the capabilities of GoDog GameStream don’t stop there. Check out these additional features that make GoDog GameStream the best live streaming video service available for youth sporting events.

  • High Speed Satellite Internet
  • We use the same satellite Internet system used by our nation’s military, so it’s designed to work anywhere. This ensures that no matter where your events or tournaments are played, GoDog EventStream system will deliver. GoDog can also add a Hotspot to provide dedicated high-speed broadband for your tournament. So, if your tournament or facility has poor or no Internet, we’ve got you covered!
  • Playback and Save Highlights
  • GoDog EventStream records and stores entire tournaments, every game, every highlight, every moment. With our Highlights Creator, families can tag moments and clip highlights of their kids making a great play and then share memorable moments on their social channels. All events are stored for up to 90 days, so people can go back and watch whenever they want.
  • Multicam
  • GoDog’s live stream is a top notch, high definition viewing experience whether we install one camera or multiple cameras. Spectators can see all the action, hear the cheer of the crowd, and even keep track of the action with a crowd-sourced scoreboard.
  • Cost Effective

Supercharge Your Tournament with GoDog EventStream

This blog is all about how GoDog EventStream will provide tournament directors with a competitive edge and provide a better experience and value for parents, players and coaches.

Supercharge Your Tournament with GoDog EventStream

Across the board, participation in youth sports continues to grow.

From Lacrosse to field hockey to rugby and cheerleading, more and more kids are getting involved in youth sports, and baseball is leading the charge.

Thanks to efforts like MLB’s Play Ball initiative, youth baseball is on the rise with no signs of slowing down.

And with more kids becoming involved, it means more parents, family, and friends are becoming involved too.

The problem is that it’s not always easy for parents to attend every game, let alone the family members who live out of town.

Yes, there are apps out there that update plays in real-time, but the “viewing experience” relies more on your imagination.

It would be more exciting to listen on the radio.

The solution is live streaming youth sport events.

As you probably know, live-streaming for youth sporting events has been around for years, but the experience is less than satisfying, not to mention the limited features the streaming companies provide.

And often the cost is just too much for a tournament or sports complex to handle.

Enter GoDog EventStream, a new way to live stream youth sporting events that is easy to set up, has tons of features, and in many cases can pay for itself and even generate revenue for a tournament.

What is GoDog EventStream?

GoDog EventStream is a unique live stream video broadcasting system.

We focus exclusively on broadcasting and recording youth sports.
And because we watch our own kids, we designed a system that covers all the bases.

First, we install temporary HD camera(s) at ball fields, venues, sport complexes… virtually anywhere kids play sports.

Then, using dedicated state-of-the-art satellite Internet, we broadcast a crystal clear, high definition video stream from every field, so people can watch youth sporting events on a computer, tablet, or phone from anywhere in the world that has an Internet connection.

Finally, we record each event so families, friends, players, and coaches can watch the action again and again, and create, save and share highlights.

GoDog EventStream is plug ‘n play, so tournament directors don’t have to worry about setting up or taking down the system. GoDog Sports’ national installer network does it for you. Gone are the days of parents struggling to record their child from the bleachers with their phones! (At least at your tournament, right?)

  • High Speed Satellite Internet
  • We use the same satellite Internet system used by our nation’s military, so it’s designed to work anywhere. This ensures that no matter where your events or tournaments are played, GoDog EventStream system will deliver. GoDog can also add a Hotspot to provide dedicated high-speed broadband for your tournament. So, if your tournament or facility has poor or no Internet, we’ve got you covered!
    • Playback and Save Highlights
    • GoDog EventStream records and stores entire tournaments, every game, every highlight, every moment. With our Highlights Creator, families can tag moments and clip highlights of their kids making a great play and then share memorable moments on their social channels.
    • Multicam
    • GoDog’s live stream is a top notch, high definition viewing experience whether we install one camera or multiple cameras. Spectators can see all the action, hear the cheer of the crowd, and even keep track of the action with a crowd-sourced scoreboard.
    • Easy Set Up
    • Our experienced teams are available nationwide, and typically do full installations in half a day, whether your tournament is in a sports complex or a cornfield in Iowa.
    • Security Guaranteed
    • The security of our system is our highest priority. The GoDog EventStream system is hosted in a secure, cloud-based environment. We will create live, password-protected game pages for every game in your tournament. Every game requires all viewers to be registered and approved by coaches, a tournament director, or an approved authority. You control who’s watching the events and the players. You can turn video and/or audio off on any fields at any time. You also receive comprehensive reports after each live streaming event that tells you how many people viewed, who watched, for how long, and more. And, with GoDog Security we can provide an extra layer of security with overnight surveillance for your fields and facilities.

These are just some of the features GoDog EventStream provides, and more are on the way. But as a tournament director, there other benefits you should consider

  • Coaches Will Love it
  • Studies have shown that video is one of the most powerful teaching tools, especially among kids. With GoDog’s video tagging and editing capabilities, coaches can create reels to use as teaching tools. Imagine teams watching “game film” to analyze their form, game strategy, and discover ways to improve their skills. By using GoDog EventStream, your tournament is actually helping teams be more competitive!
  • Provide a Better Experience for Parents, Family, and Friends
  • Time and time again you see parents “watching” their children’s sporting events through their phones, trying to capture that magic moment. If they’re lucky, they might get some video, but it’s shaky or someone gets in the way. And showing the video later to loved ones who couldn’t be there, well, something is lost in translation, right? Parents will breathe a sigh of relief when they see the GoDog EventStream system in place. No more hassling with their phones, and anyone who can’t be at the game can watch via the live stream.
  • GoDog EventStream Provides New Revenue for Tournaments
  • We understand that live streaming can be painful and costly to set up at weekend tournaments. So, we look for ways to provide new revenue streams, with no out-of-pocket costs to your tournament. By adding a modest increase in tournament fees, tournaments can add a high value service for the cost of one trip to the snack bar, per family. Also, our system is VAST compliant so we’re ready to take on all kinds of advertisers and sponsors and share that revenue with you.
  • Temp to Perm
  • If your tournament location is interested in keeping GoDog EventStream permanently, our installers can accommodate any facility and GoDog will provide an effortless new digital revenue that will truly differentiate your venue.
