Athletics New Web Site Officially Launched
Together with SIDEARM Sports, a new design had been in the works for several months. The new look was officially launched on April 2. In addition to an attractive new look, there are lots of new features available.
"We are extremely excited to have a new design for yorkathletics.com," said York Sports Information Director, John Scarinci. “The folks at SIDEARM Sports did a great job with the design and I think it will really enhance the experience for our fans and student-athletes.”
Here’s a breakdown of what the site now offers:
Visitors to yorkathletics.com can now move around the web site faster and easier than ever. Quick links at the top of the page allow for users to access a team’s rosters, schedule and news with just one click. Previously, it would have taken several clicks to access that information. Once a user is on the sport-specific page, information on that sport (e.g. statistics, head coach information, record book) can also be accessed with just one click.
Visitors can also view results, box scores, recaps and upcoming games without leaving the homepage by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking on the upcoming events/ recent results tabs. A composite calendar is also available for people to see the upcoming schedule for all York’s sports in one place.
On the right-hand side of the page, users can watch the latest videos on York’s YouTube channel. Fans can expect more video now that this feature has launched. Sports specific pages will also use YouTube’s playlist feature to show only videos from that sport.
Social Media Integration
Fans can easily access York’s Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube pages with one click on the top header. In addition, users can sign up for text message alerts or RSS feeds with the toolbar at the bottom of the page.
Athlete of the Month
A male and female student-athlete will be honored on the homepage with the Athlete of the Month award. Their photos will be displayed throughout the site.
