COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — NJCAA Sports Properties has announced that NJCAA TV, powered by iHigh.com (www.njcaatv.ihigh.com), will provide live video coverage of seven NJCAA championship tournaments taking place throughout the month of May. Since its creation in 2009, NJCAA TV has been the exclusive home for live broadcasts of NJCAA championship events.
Live coverage of select spring championships on NJCAA TV begins May 11-12 with the national semifinals and finals of the men’s lacrosse championship and women’s lacrosse championship. The men’s tournament will take place in Garden City, N.Y., on the campus of Nassau Community College while the women’s tournament will be held on the campus of Monroe Community College in Rochester, N.Y.
The championship tournaments of NJCAA Division I and Division II softball will both take place May 15-18. NJCAA TV will provide live audio (opening rounds) and video (semifinals and finals) of both events in St. George, Utah (Division I) and Clinton, Miss. (Division II).

Broadcasts of each event are being made possible through the cooperation of each tournament host, their volunteer staff, the NJCAA national office and support staff from iHigh.com in Lexington, Ky.
A new and improved NJCAA TV debuted fall 2012 after the NJCAA finalized a new partnership with iHigh.com that includes a corporate sponsorship and multimedia rights agreement. As a result, NJCAA Sports Properties was formed to manage the association’s corporate sponsorships, national advertising (print and digital), championship marketing, and radio/television rights in addition to NJCAA TV.
Since August of 2012, NJCAA TV has eclipsed 1.1 million unique visitors.
