ARLINGTON, Va. - Marymount University athletics is going green starting in the Fall 2018 season, moving all game-day programs to a digital format that can be accessed on the athletic website and athletic application on your iPhone and Android. In addition to saving an immense amount of paper throughout the school year, it will also save the institution thousands of dollars in printing costs each year.
Game programs, which typically are given out at each home contest, provide rosters, schedules, and game notes for each event. That information, as well as much more, is now found online on the athletic website.
Programs for home Marymount events will be available HERE at least 24 hours prior to each event. In select circumstances, where one team plays on consecutive days, the program may not be available 24 hours in advance, but will be offered as soon as possible. Also available at the link are archives of the game-day live stream from the event if you could not make the game to cheer on your favorite Saints. You can also access this 'Fan Guide' under the 'Fan Zone' dropdown on the athletic website and on the athletic application.
"Digital programs", which have been adopted at most NCAA Division III Championships in lieu of hard copies, can include links to more in depth information found online.
Larger schools such as Ohio State, Michigan, and Wisconsin have eliminated printing media guides, instead providing the information to the media and fans digitally online. Major League Baseball has also ceased printing their traditional preseason guides in print format, instead offering the publications to the media online.
For Marymount fans who want to have a printed program, the digital format will be in PDF, and easily printable for the home user on 8.5" x 11" paper.
