Colorado has been a hotbed for high school athletics, and now the state is hoping to add another facet to the sport to keep kids glued to their computers.
The University of Colorado is planning to offer online high school games for free, and the program will be available to the public starting next week, The Denver Post reported.
The free online high-school basketball and soccer games will take place during the summer and fall, and will be free to all eligible high school students.
The online games will include both high school and college teams and will offer free viewing, according to the Denver Post.
The program, called the Colorado High School Basketball and Soccer Experience, is part of a national trend that has been pushing students to pay for high-quality sports and entertainment.
The first high school basketball tournament in Colorado was held in 2011 and the most recent was held this past summer, according a release from the university.
The team participating in the upcoming summer games is the Boulder Buffaloes, who beat the Colorado Wildcats 71-57 on Tuesday.
