Live Streaming of SHS Games!

Mr. Pinney is excited to announce that we are now live streaming sporting events from the turf (Holden Field) and from the Gold Gym! You are able to view these games only with the creation of an account at https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/. This platform does have a cost associated with it of $10.99 per month and is good for any of our home games in either of these locations as well as any away game in a school that uses the same platform, such as Enfield or Glastonbury. Once you log-in search for Simsbury High School in the search bar, select the game that you wish to view and enjoy the show. One of the best things about this new platform is that it is available nationwide so please share the link with others and let them enjoy watching your children play sports too.
