What is Esports?
Esports is competitive video gaming, organized as a high school sport. Like other high school sports, teams require a coach and students will practice and compete in a regular season for the opportunity to advance to playoffs and be crowned the best in the state. There is no travel required throughout the regular season and students can participate either at school or at home.
Additional key facts when considering esports:
- 45% of students involved in esports haven’t participated in any other school sport or activity
- Engage a new subset of your student population in school sponsored activities with equipment already available on campus – no additional hardware required.
- Compete from campus – no travel costs required compared to other sports.
- $500-$3K annual operating budget — Esports cost a fraction of other sports and offer similar benefits
- More than 200 colleges are offering +$20 million in esports scholarships
