"We needed real-time and real-world experience streaming through our own service this season to learn and grow as a league. We collected valuable data, insights, and knowledge about what our league needs in order to deliver quality streaming services. Every arena in our league is different. Different equipment, different network connectivity, and different production teams. The point of using the CIF Network app early in the season was to get a full picture of what our individual teams needed in order to control our product in future seasons. Now that we have completed our due diligence and information gathering, we will transition back to YOUTUBE for the remainder of the 2022 season. Off-season investments with incoming media partners will be made in production efforts to give our fans a truly professional experience in future seasons"
