We need a video website similar to youtube to support several teams of athletes and give users the ability to post video and photos from their competitions, and add up to 5-star rankings to the videos. We would like to start with three sports for now and have the option to expand and add more sports in the future.
Most important icon tabs are the 'Sport 1,' 'Sport 2,' and 'Sport 3' icons which we'd like to have pictures as icons. Note there should also at least be a 'Profile' Icon intended for users to log-in or add new profiles and register on the site. This should be done in the sleekest way possible, such as using a drop-down menu. When users scroll over the icons, the sport name should be revealed in text or indicated directly below. The goal is to have a stimulating visual effect as can be seen on the photo icons here: [url removed, login to view]
The site requires the following organization and is not difficult:
- Within the homepage of this sports video site, users need to indicate their sport of interest.
- The site needs to then filter photo and video content specific to that chosen sport.
- Users should then see a chronologically organized listing of recent and upcoming competitions (Such as 'NY State Championships,' 'New Englands,' 'Regionals,' etc., followed by the dates indicating when each took place).
- Users should then see a subdivision under those competitions for males and females. Choosing one means filtering all male competition content or female.
- Users should see a further subdivision of age groups which will then require a final subdivision of weight classes, requiring similar filtering capabilities for users to seek videos of the age and weight division specific content.
- Users must have the ability to add content under whichever weight division they'd like.
- Users should also be able to rate videos and comment on them.
- Videos will be footage of two athletes competing against one another. It is preferable that each video be titled 'ATHLETE'S NAME vs. ATHLETE'S NAME, 81KG - NY STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS.' In other words, listing both of their names followed by their weight category and the event name. This is not incredibly important but preferred to maintain site consistency.
- Users must have the ability to send response videos to other users.
- Users should be able to email and post videos onto facebook.
- Users should have the ability to create individual profiles with a picture next to their usernames. The profiles are intended for them to congregate videos of their choice easily, resembling youtube's user capabilities only with a more professional layout. Their profiles should have text boxes enabling for them to list awards, honors, win-loss records, and athlete statistics, brief personal information, current training facility and coach information/address, contact info, etc.. Not much is required here, just a few categories and a neat layout.
---ADMIN/FINAL SHORT NOTES---
- Back-end Admin should have control of site, able to edit content and moderate the site.
- Videos will be no longer than 10-15 minutes long and likely average around 5-8 minutes.
