With the fall sports season upon us, we wanted to remind everyone that all #sccspirit football games & all home volleyball matches will be streamed. Cross country will not as our broadcaster isn’t as fast as our students! Our goal as always will be to bring you all playoff games. All sports will be streamed on YouTube Live via the SCC YouTube channel available at youtube.com/stcroixcentralschooldistrict . Streams should show up near the top of the channel page. There may be some growing pains as we figure out how to best bring the streams to YouTube. Go subscribe now so you can be notified when a stream is upcoming! Please SHARE this change with family and friends as we will be up and running this Friday as the football team takes on Durand at home! If you have any questions, please comment below or email me at bmillar[at]scc.k12.wi.us.
