Football games will also be aired on live television every week
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - As the Yuma Union High School District (YUHSD) continues to follow protocol due to the pandemic safely, it has decided to live-stream fall sports on its Facebook page for families.
YUHSD will be live streaming the "Game of the Week" for varsity football and volleyball.
It will broadcast a volleyball match every Tuesday for the next month with its special Thursday edition starting November 5.
On Fridays it will showcase one of its two football games.
“I’m really excited to see my students put together a live broadcast of our YUHSD athletic events,” Gila Ridge High School Film and TV Production Teacher James Kuzniak said. “In CTE we pride ourselves on hands-on, industry-level learning and this is definitely one of those opportunities. From the cameramen to the director running the switcher, this production will be entirely CTE student led. In the midst of this pandemic, this opportunity to give back to the players, their parents, fans and communities is one we couldn't pass up.”
You can watch the games on YUHSD Facebook page here.
