YouCastr, the live Internet sports broadcasting network, today announces a partnership with Young Sportscasters or America (YSA), the sportscaster training academy for kids ages 8-18.
Students participating in YSA's sports broadcasting training programs, including YSA's program with the Boston Public Schools' BPS-TV, will utilize YouCastr's online sports network to practice their broadcasting skills and allow friends and family to listen and interact. The initial students are part of YSA's program with the Boston Public Schools BPS-TV. Jimmy Young, YSA's Founder and President said "In an era where kids are more comfortable communicating through technology via text, IM, and phone, YSA wants to use sports as the vehicle to recreate interpersonal communication. YouCastr.com allows students to practice play-by-play or analysis and debate sports issues online. One of our objectives at YSA is to teach kids the skills and techniques of sports production, and the creation of sportscasts at home, and our partnership with YouCastr helps us fulfill our mission by providing an innovative and easy to use broadcasting network completely free of charge."
YouCastr's sports broadcasting network is available to any aspiring broadcaster - at no cost. It is simple to be a broadcast with YouCastr as all users need is a computer and Internet connection.
