Friendly eSports Competition


How It Works

Game Play

Players will invite their players to participate in the state association’s seasonal play (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall), which will have a variety of activities pers season. 

Players can participate in Weeklies (leagues) that will revolve around 5 weeks of Regular Season play. Players play 2 matches per week, (approximately 1 hour total of play) for a total of 10 games against opposing players. Promotion/relegation mini-cycles help in pairing players based on skill levels.  

 Ladders are geared towards players who want to play with an opponent at their own pace and challenges them to a match in order to move up the ranks in the ladder. 

Tournaments, on the other hand, will revolve around a 1-3 day event for players to compete in various formats depending on the game title (i.e. group staging, single/double elimination, etc). Ladders and leagues often lead to tournaments to determine overall winners. 

Social play will also be offered for gaming club members. Players within the club can engage with one another for matches outside the scheduled events. This type of play is encouraged to give them age-appropriate friends to play with. 

All players will play under the banner of their respective home club, representing your team officially. Winning players and winning clubs will be celebrated on the association website.

Players will be required to own a copy of the video game featured in the events  (weeklies, tournaments, or ladders) they wish to join, as well as a compatible device to play the game.  Players must have an online subscription to their gaming device to allow for online play.  Each video game will have different software and hardware requirements, so please check the details on your specific gaming event page.

Who Can Participate?

Participants are assigned to different divisions according to their age groups and console type (Xbox, Playstation, or Nintendo Switch). Future titles that are crossplay compatible, such as Rocket League, will only be divided by age groups since all console types can play together, including PC. For the weeklies, tournaments, and ladders, players between the ages of 10-19 may participate in the following age groups:

  • 12 & Under-Console Type (Xbox, Playstation, or Nintendo Switch)
  • 13-15 years of age-Console Type (Xbox, Playstation, or Nintendo Switch)
  • 16-19 years of age-Console Type (Xbox, Playstation, or Nintendo Switch)

Score Reporting

Both players have the responsibility to report the final score by using a computer or through their mobile devices to take a picture of the match results and uploading it on the portal.
