Athletics Update from Mrs. Jones (11/17/23)

The Colorado High School Activities Association wants to alert the public and its member schools to a growing trend in internet scamming. Hundreds of Facebook, Twitter/X, Instagram and YouTube events are being promoted on social media and they appear to be real live streams but are actually phishing for personal information.

These posts appear as legitimately scheduled live streams associated with CHSAA or a member school and they provide a link or QR code to scan to watch a scheduled live stream. When you click on the link/scan the QR code, you are typically asked to enter personal information to gain access to the video.

These are fake. Please don’t enter any information.

As always, before clicking on any links, make sure the account is reputable by checking the account activity and number of followers, for example.

If you come across an account that looks to be fake, report the account as fake and block it.

The NFHS Network ( is the official video streaming platform of CHSAA. Many of its member schools utilize this platform for broadcasting needs. However, during the regular season, many schools have decided to use other entities to stream live. Please check with your local high school athletic department for the correct location to watch your favorite team safely.

When on social media, CHSAA maintains one single official account on Facebook, Twitter/X, Threads, Instagram and YouTube. The authorized version for each platform is @CHSAA, with the exception of YouTube (@CHSAANow).

Other CHSAA-affiliated accounts include:

Sport specific accounts on Twitter (@colohsfootball, @coloradohslax, @colohswrestling, @colohsvb, @colohssoftball, @colohshoops, @colohshockey, @colohsfh, @colohsbaseball, @chsaarpi, @chsaanow)
