Today, parents are more closely involved in youth sports than ever before. And for good reason. Parents love the powerful lessons sports can offer: how to be a good winner (and a good loser), how to be accountable, how to focus on effort rather than outcome, how to think on your feet, how to be a team player, how to develop your skill – the list goes.
It’s no surprise that youth sports streaming has also increased in popularity. But why are more and more parents broadcasting their kids’ games online?
- It helps you stay connected. You get to spend more time with your child and actively participate in their life, capturing precious memories that last a lifetime.
- It helps them stay connected. Away games, work obligations, and health safety make it tough to make it to every game. But streaming keeps loyal fans glued to their screens and rooting them on.
- It’s easier than ever to do it yourself. Apps like Airmix can seamlessly transform your iPad into a single-unit production suite for better, high-quality streams you can be proud of.
- You get to grow your social network and connect with other parents. Keep reading, and we’ll reveal how other parents can add more angles to your stream using an iPhone and Airmix Remote.
- It’s essential for recruitment goals. Get unedited live footage that scouts and coaches want. Then, take clips to create polished highlight reels and mixtapes for the 1-2 punch.
- It’s great for film study. Go over plays, correct habits and teach your child using footage you can review together.
- It’s fun. Let’s be honest. Who wouldn’t want to showcase their kid’s one-handed catch, penalty kick, or game-winning base hit with friends and family to enjoy?
