Livestream for Many Van Meter Events (Including Tonight’s FB Game)

We have partnered with NFHS to provide live streams of all of our home events that take place at the football field and in the north gym. The service requires either an annual or a monthly subscription. There are no game-specific options, however, with your subscription, you can watch the games live or on-demand. ALL events that take place in the north gym or at the football field/track stadium can be viewed, including the postseason.

If you are not satisfied with the service, contact NFHS and they may reimburse your subscription. Because we are using their cameras and they are operated through the internet and not by people, we are not able to adjust them ourselves. All support needs to come from them. More information is linked below.

Annual subscription cost is $69.99/ year

Monthly subscription cost is $10.99/month

A portion of the fee is returned to the school to offset the cost of the camera systems and streaming services. More information can be found here.

There are multiple ways to stream the games for your viewing.

Once you purchase a subscription, you will have access to any event that takes place in the north gym or at the football stadium. You will also have access to events of other schools that use the NFHS network when we are on the road.

If you have any questions, please let Mike Linde at mike.linde@vmbulldogs.com or Deron Durflinger at deron.durflinger@vmbulldogs.com know and we will do our best to help.

Fall Sports Guidelines and Expectations

Football and Volleyball will look different this fall. Please adhere to the guidelines and expectations outlined in the link below. In general:

  • Maintain physical distance from other individuals not in your household
  • Wear a mask when physical distancing isn’t possible (we are considering requiring masks for certain events, so always be sure to have one with you.)
  • No students under 9th grade allowed at events unless a sibling of a participant (they then must stay seated/or standing with a parent)
  • Crowds will be limited and tickets will be presold online only
  • Those sitting in the bleachers need to sit 2X2 in the designated areas to maintain appropriate physical distancing measures.
  • If fans do not follow the guidelines, they may not be allowed to attend future events.
