Parents that are live streaming games of their kids do an amazing job. These live streams can be re-watches after the game so play and mistakes can be reviewed afterwards by the players and coaches.

- Motivate and encourage others to start
Sports are good for people’s health and live videos can motivate more people to start practicing and get involved. Live streaming to your FB page or profile can motivate parents to bring their kids to the practice and it will encourage them to get in touch with you and ask for more information.
