Over 85,000 student athletes participate in high school athletics in the state of Wisconsin every year. WSN, WISCONSIN SPORTS NETWORK, is an integrated publishing company with a focus on these student athletes, their communities, families, friends, fans and coaches. Founded in 2002, we have successfully integrated both print and online mediums to give their audience a unique and highly popular variety of quality content.
In the winter of 2012, SportsEngine acquired WSN. Through their support, synergies and technology we hope to expand our reach and offerings in high school and youth sports in our fine state. The SportsEngine sports management software powers over 6,000 sports organizations across the globe, from local youth leagues and associations, to large groups like USA Hockey and USA Wrestling, to media properties like WisSports.net and mnhockeyhub.com. Numerous high school athletic departments in Wisconsin use the SportsEngine platform, along with the Trailways, FVA, and Greater Metro Conferences.
We currently publish WisSports.net, the most popular high school sports site in Wisconsin. In addition, our site is one of the top five independently run high school sports sites in the nation.
Our initial launch was on November 18th, 2002 and consisted of a high school basketball website Wishoops.net. It quickly became the number one resource for high school basketball information in the state of Wisconsin. Since we have added several other WIAA sports and have accumulated:
- 300+ million page views
- 1,000,000+ unique IP addresses
- Bookmarked over 2,000,000 times
The Boys Basketball Yearbook produced by Mark Miller has become quite a tradition in the state. Featuring player rankings, schedules, rosters and much more it is going on its 32nd year. Content that was previously in the Gridiron Guide, Girls Basketball Yearbook, and WSN Illustrated print editions in the past has been moved online in recent years.
Wisconsin Sports Network partners with many Coaches Associations and media outlets to provide content, promote sports, and enhance coverage for all parties.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
WSN entered into a partnership with the state's largest daily newspaper, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel nearly ten years ago. The agreement includes Journal Sentinel staff entering reported scores and stats information directly into the WSN database, with WSN powering the stats, standings, and results pages of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel prep sports pages. Schedules, rosters, and other content is shared between both sources as well.
Wisconsin Sports Network provides various services for several Coaches Associations, including the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association, Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association, Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association, and Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association. WSN also has positive working relationships with all of the Coaches Associations for the sports that we cover.
WSN partners with a number of media outlets, including 37 radio stations around the state that currently air the WisSports.net Minute.
