Thanks to its new live streaming service, fans of Surry Community College can now enjoy Knights’ home baseball and volleyball games without leaving the comfort of their own home.
SCC home baseball and volleyball games can now be found on the Surry Knights’ YouTube channel.
“What some of our Region X teams are doing in terms of technology is really unique and tremendous,” Surry Athletic Director Mark Tucker said. “We are live streaming baseball and volleyball games on our YouTube channel. At this time, we are not live streaming softball because we play at Fisher River Park and it is open to the public contingent upon state regulations in regards to attendance.”
Surry’s baseball field has a camera set up in the press box, while theSCC gym has internal cameras built in for the livestreams to capture all the action and the score. Like many schools in Region X, Surry moved forward with the live streaming of events to allow all fans, friends and family to see the Knights’ contests.
“It is nice to have for our parents and our fans to be able to watch their son or daughter play during these difficult times,” Tucker said.“We are allowing two guests per player for home games. Every school in the region has different protocols and regulations. Since the region includes schools from North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, you have three different states with three different regulations in terms of attendance and so forth. Each school has the ability to set their own policies as well. As of now, that is where we are. I have had a lot of calls and emails concerning visiting parents and fans attending our games here at Surry. And as a parent of a college student athlete, I can certainly feel for their situation of not being able to see their son or daughter play in person.”
To find Surry livestreams, go to YouTube.com and simply do a word search for Surry Knights. This is the only livestream currently done in conjunction with SCC, and the college advises to not pay for any streaming services for Surry athletic events.
“Surry Community College Athletics does not partner with any streaming services. We do not charge for access to events that are live streamed over our YouTube channel. Please do not sign up or pay for streaming services that involve Surry Knights broadcasts,”Tucker said. “There are many scams on social media right now where the official NJCAA (National Junior College AthleticAssociation) logo is being illegally used to solicit credit card information to watch NJCAA games over livestream. These are hackers. Please do not fall prey to their schemes.”
