Walla Walla Schools Launch Video Coverage of Sports
Wow - It's been a whole year since schools have enjoyed school athletics due to the pandemic. Walla Walla School Districts have given the green light for coaches and athletes to resume sports activities with the move to Phase 2 in the state recovery plan.
One way the schools plan to circumvent the attendance cap is to launch live video streaming services through the Blue Devil Northwest program.
All home varsity games will be live-streamed by Blue Devil Northwest and easily accessed on personal devices and streaming applications.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) season one for high school sports includes football, slowpitch softball, cross country, girls soccer, and volleyball.
A full slate of games is scheduled to begin the week of February 22.
Here are the attendance limitations according to a press release from the Walla Walla School Districts:
The WIAA has implemented strict regulations for spectators to limit attendance at all high school sports competitions. For all Mid-Columbia Conference schools and events, only home spectators will be allowed admittance for Season One fall sports. Two tickets will be allocated for each rostered athlete in uniform for volleyball, slowpitch softball, girls soccer, and freshman and junior varsity football. For varsity football, two tickets per senior player and senior dance/cheer participant will be allocated. No other spectators will be permitted and only current game rostered participants will be allowed at the event. These restrictions are required to comply with the strict spectator guidelines outlined by state guidance.
I know everyone is excited for students to get back to school and back into athletics and the new video streaming platform will be a great addition. It means family members can enjoy the games without being on-site and that's a great thing.
