With fan attendance limited at athletic events, many schools are looking to give fans a way to watch from home. The LL League is working to compile this information in one place:
- This listing is updated as we get information from member schools.
- It is the host school’s prerogative as to which events are live streamed or not.
- Some streams may have commentary; others may not. Some streams will be a static camera angle of the entire playing surface; others will use camera operators. Please keep in mind these are not ESPN productions and everyone is trying their best and learning as they go.
In an effort to correct misinformation that is circulating regarding the LL League Cross Country season, here is the plan for regular season LL League competition:

- Jr. High boys – 12 runners
- Jr. High girls – 12 runners
- High School boys -12 runners

2. Split Junior High and High School into separate days
- High School Day
