Norcross, Ga. -- The Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) and iHigh.com®, the Global Youth Network, have announced a partnership between the two organizations in an effort to build more interest and recognition for the conference, its member teams and its student-athletes.
Thanks to iHigh's feature rich platform, including its live streaming capabilities, the SSAC and its 15 member schools will have the ability to post broadcast events to fans all over the world - including live streaming to mobile devices.
In addition to the SSAC website, iHigh will create a Southern States Network, which will include broadcasts, videos, photos and articles from the SSAC and the member institutions. Viewers will also be able to watch recent and past episodes of the Southern States Showcase, the conference's television series that airs on Fox Sport South's affiliate, Sports South.
Commissioner, Kurt Patberg notes, "For those of us that have been around the industry for awhile, it is incredible what types of continued advancements in what we can provide our constituents. We are excited about the product and services that iHigh is providing us."
"iHigh.com is very excited to partner with Southern States Athletic Conference and its 15 member schools," CEO Jim Host said of the new partnership. "Student-athletes will be able to use our unique mix of features including our player profiles and our patent pending iHighlight feature wherein the athlete can choose his/her favorite clips from videos and broadcasts and pull those into their profile to share out to the world."
Host continued by noting how SSAC events can be live streamed and viewed by family and friends around the world, not only on computer, but on Smart phones, iPads and other Smart media. "We look forward to facilitating greater visibility to the league, while also forging new avenues of revenue opportunities along the way. Ultimately, the goal is to help the SSAC and its members thrive in this challenging economic environment."
