Develop a "show rundown" so your crew knows how to operate simultaneously.  The typical flow of a live sports broadcast looks like this:

 The Flow Camera Talent Overlays
 Start of broadcast Wide "pan" of venueWelcome audience and tease matchup Title Card
 During game action Follow the game action Play-by-play and analysis Scorebug
 Between periods Wide shot of venue Recap period and score Scoreboard
 End of broadcast Wide shot of venue Final score Scoreboard

Here are some additional quick tips for a successful broadcast:
  • Arrive early to set up equipment
  • Run a test stream to confirm Internet connectivity
  • Manage Media and use Logos, Videos and additional Graphics during broadcast
  • Practice "the flow" before going on air
  • Don't forget to tweet your pictures @NFHSnetwork
