CSULB Partners with Livestream’s Rowing Channel

Thursday, 24. April 2014


In a massive effort by Southern California colleges and the American Collegiate Rowing Association (ACRA), CSU Long Beach has joined the efforts of The Rowing Channel (TRC) consortium to bring live webcasts of major regattas to our ever-growing community of alums, their families, and our community. Other SoCal institutions include Orange Coast College, who had a widely popular webcast of the 2014 Newport Regatta. CSULB will add the Southern California Opening Day Regatta and the new Naples Island Collegiate Challenge to the lineup of annual events. In addition, regional events such as the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships (WIRA) and the annual national championships of the ACRA will be the flagship events of the channel.

It is the goal of the consortium to pool together resources, establish best practice, and obtain the proper manpower to make this operation possible.

TRC is operated by Netrendity Network Services, a provider of infrastructure consulting.
