Esports is increasing in popularity across the United States. Esports programs are growing at every level, from middle schools to professional teams. Many schools are considering how best to integrate esports into their schools. There are two general approaches that schools are taking, and some implement both: Highly Competitive Varsity Teams and Non-Competitive Club Programs. Both options will provide high levels of engagement, excitement and deepen a sense of community with your student body, particularly those students who do not find engagement in your traditional programs.
