E-Sports| 6th-8th | Fridays | Sean Adamic
E-Sports is taking gaming to the next level! We will train in Rocket League and hold internal tournaments. We will be working hand, eye coordination while building community around gaming. This class will prepare players for a larger state tournament that will happen next semester.E-Sports in schools is not just about playing video games. Just like other team sports, E-Sports teach valuable real-world skills like teamwork, communication, and critical thinking. By offering E-Sports as an enrichment course, schools reach students who often are otherwise disengaged from the school community. E-Sports in schools can transport these kids from the solitary world of digital gaming into the common space of the school. These otherwise uninvolved students join the ranks of their successfully involved peers: More likely to be engaged during classes. More likely to graduate. More likely to aspire to higher education. And less likely to suffer and spread the harms of feeling out of sync with their school community. Not only does E-Sports in school boost student interest in higher education, but it can also provide a pathway to postsecondary scholarships. Close to 100 colleges and universities are members of the National Association of Collegiate E-Sports (NACE), the official governing body for varsity esports. Nearly 200 US colleges collectively offer around $15 million a year in E-Sports scholarships.
