Over the past several years, the combination of sports and social media has taken the spotlight in the world’s top athletic action. Although Yeshiva League athletics doesn’t receive as much attention as the professionals, there is still much buzz on social media, mainly due to the work of Yeshiva League Pass (YLP).

YLP is a company which provides scores, highlights and all of the latest updates on Yeshiva League varsity athletics. In the past, YLP has received much publicity due to its active Instagram account and website, but this year is destined to be the best one yet, due to new updates and additions to the company.

One of the new additions to YLP will be the players of the week and month, decided by the YLP team, based on performances during hockey or basketball games. The winning players will receive a post with their name and the reason they won the award. Another addition this season will be birthday posts—a great way to share someone’s birthday with the Yeshiva League fan base. Just direct message the YLP Instagram account the name of the birthday boy/girl, any additional message, finalize the payment and it will be posted on the story. YLP will also be adding “Did you know?” facts to its account twice a week, covering past and present trivia about the Yeshiva League. These fun posts will keep followers entertained and knowledgeable about the legacy of the Yeshiva League. In addition to all these new additions, there will also be returning segments from last season, including top plays, who you got, game recaps and power rankings.

Another addition for YLP is a weekly page in The Jewish Link sports section devoted to Yeshiva League sports with articles from the top games of the week, “Did you know?” facts, weekly power rankings and much more. A weekly talk show, “Courtside Pass” with host Elliot Weiselberg, is also in the works and will feature the latest news and updates from around the league.

YLP also has a very informal website which includes game links to be able to watch live streamed Yeshiva League action as well as full access to the YLP store.

YLP has a powerful list of sponsors for its account this season, but sponsorship spots are still available. If interested, check out the website yeshivaleaguepass.com or on Instagram @yeshivaleaguepass.

YLP is looking forward for a great 2019-20 season and hopes that everyone will be apart of it.
