What is the Official Extra Life Stream Team?

The Extra Life Stream Team is a group of our most enthusiastic community members who volunteer their time to provide a presence for Extra Life on on the official Extra Life Twitch Channel. The Stream Team promotes the national Extra Life movement. The members of the Stream Team are goodwill ambassadors for Extra Life and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. They represent the very best of our community through their dedication and passion for gaming for charity while live streaming. 


We Want Streamers!


Do you have streaming experience?

We are looking for Extra Lifers who have experience in streaming for at least 2 hours on a regular (weekly) basis for period of 8 weeks to start. Are you well versed in the Extra life program? Can you talk about it conversationally? Great!


Don't have a ton of followers? Not a problem. However, live streaming is a skill and while we understand many of you may want to ‘get into streaming’, we are looking for folks who have a bit of experience engaging the viewer. Don't have experience streaming? Start streaming on your own channel, follow, watch and participate in chat in other streams. You have to start somewhere!


We have a core group that know their way around a stream and are experts concerning the Extra Life program. If that sounds like you, then we want to hear from you. 


Your time to shine and share your love for Extra Life

Being on the Stream Team is being an Extra Life aficionado. To be clear this about making Extra Life visible and to encourage participation. It's not about your personal donation page (though a casual mention during your stream is permissible), your guild or team. This application is solely for the person submitting it. If your fellow team or guild members are interested, have them complete an application! The more the merrier! If you are unable to stream during your assigned time please contact the Stream Team Lead- @allthewayj, @MajorLinux, or @heartandthesynapse


What is expected of the Stream Team?


Stream Amazing Content

  • You’re free to stream just about anything you can "play". We are representing a children’s charity and you’ll be streaming on the official Extra Life channel, so we do require the following:
  • You must use the official Twitch backgrounds provided in by the Extra Life team. Please, no modifications, donation alerts etc. These materials are approved by the national team and we appreciate you adhering to this guideline.
  • NO PROFANITY AT ANY TIME (the all caps means we are serious). Keep it PG/PG-13 when streaming.
  • Be sure to have an appropriate. family friendly screenname for Twitch, Twitter and the whatnot. 
  • Keep the content of your games to a maximum rating of “T for Teen.” 
  • No “M” rated games (and most games rated PEGI 16+, not sure? Ask!).  This shouldn't be a big surprise! There are plenty of games to play outside of that rating. Get creative if you get stuck! Ask the Stream Team community if you get into a rut! Remember, it's for the kids. 
  •  Use the Official Extra Life Stream Team assets when streaming. 
  •  Console streamers MUST have access to a capture card and software that supports Twitch Stream Keys. (PS4 and Xbox One do not support this natively).
  • Emulators and ROMS are not allowed on stream in adherence to DMCA. 
  • Contact the Stream Team Lead in the event you cannot stream. We are flexible and understanding of the needs of your personal schedule, just keep us in the loop. 
  • Failure to adhere to these expectations will affect your continued eligibility as a member of the team. 

It's all about Extra Life

The primary focus while streaming on the official Extra Life twitch channel should be on promoting the Extra Life program. Your audience will be from all over North America and possibly the world. Focus on educating the public about Extra Life and encouraging them to register to participate.

What does the Stream Team do?


As a member of the Stream Team you will have...

  •           A regular, weekly, two hour block of time on the official Extra Life channel for at least a two month period. Depending on demand this could be extended.
  •           The opportunity to represent Extra Life to the Twitch community.
  •           An opportunity, once per hour, to promote your personal fund raising page, Guild, or Team on the official Extra life twitch channel.
