Who can watch the live streamed games?

The staff member streaming the game can choose between allowing only family members and players (for teams whose age group allows for players to have their own account) to see the live stream, or allowing family members, players, and team fans to see the live stream.

How much does it cost?

It's free for staff members to stream, watch, and access the video archives. Confirmed members and fans can watch the live stream for free, but advanced features like accessing the video archives, the box score, play-by-play and the plays announcer require a subscription.

Streaming is a battery intensive operation for any phone. Your battery is going to drain. We recommend fully charging your phone prior to live streaming, and if possible, plugging your phone into an external battery.

You cannot score and live stream simultaneously from one device. You will need to have a second device on-hand to score the game.

What happens if I leave the app while streaming?

If you background the app (take a phone call, answer a text, etc) then the stream will pause for all viewers. Viewers will receive a message saying that the stream is paused. Once you return to the app you will be able to resume streaming.

If you are scoring a soccer, football, field hockey, hockey, lacrosse, rugby (union) or water polo game, viewers will see the GameStream scoreboard with the live video feed. In the Live Game Chat you can also give players credit for goals and shots and keep a running game clock to track how much time is left.
