Esports provides schools with an unprecedented opportunity to engage students in a subject they are already likely involved in and quite comfortable with. We will discuss how an esports team can be utilized to encourage students to stay on track with their school work and even how to integrate competitive gaming topics into the curriculum. Individual programs can range from completely remote to being a powerhouse program for the school district that is unique to the region. This flexibility allows teams to start with any range of funding that is available. Esports brings the normal suite of life skills like teamwork and communication traditionally found in regular sports to a new group of students that may shy away from such things while also exposing students to a whole new unique technical side of production and presentation. We will review measurable success metrics including post-high school careers and college scholarships/opportunities. It’s time to see what the hype is about and learn how this distinctive program can improve your school.
