Set Up Your Livestream

YC Rocks! Virtual will be streamed on YouTube Live. To ensure the best viewing experience, set up your live stream to play on your TV. Here are some helpful tips to get your live stream set up:

  • Grab your laptop! When you’re ready to watch, visit YouthChallengeSports.com/Livestream to access the video.
  • Most TVs have an HDMI cable connection. Connect one end of the cable to your laptop and the other end to your TV HDMI port (hint: if you have a DVD/Blu-ray player, Amazon Firestick, or other smart TV plugin, that’s usually connected with an HDMI cord).
  • Turn on your TV and navigate to the HDMI input that your computer is plugged into.
  • Voila! You should be able to see your computer screen and can start the livestream.
  • If you’re having trouble seeing or hearing the livestream, check your computer display and sound settings to make sure the output it set correctly.
  • If you’re still having trouble, give us a call at 440.892.1001.

Host a Virtual Watch Party

  • YC Rocks! Virtual will be streamed on YouTube Live. To share your livestream with your virtual watch party:
