“By updating our site we’ve been able to improve things such as navigation, which will make the site much more user-friendly,” said Kirk Handy, Director of Club Sports. “Also, the web pages for individual club sports teams are more cohesive and the design of the site as a whole is much better.”
The site assumes a similar style to that of the Liberty University Athletics site, which launched in its current form in August 2010. It includes a live feed of Club Sports social media (Facebook and Twitter), access to team pages for all 31 teams, a schedule of events (including a real-time countdown to the first Division I men’s hockey game), and information on camps.
Live streaming coverage of select games including men’s Division I and women’s Division I hockey and lacrosse will continue to be available on the site. Beginning next week, a video archive of past events will be available.
“The site is more high-tech and has many new and exciting features,” Handy said. “Our new website will be a great asset to our department, current athletes, coaches, prospective students, alumni, and fans.”
