PLAYVS IS THE OFFICIAL
HIGH SCHOOL ESPORTS LEAGUE
What is esports?
Esports officially stands for electronic sports, not to be confused with video games, because it’s much more than that. What sets it apart is the level of organized competitive gameplay between teams and its own strict set of rules and guidelines. Esports is about teamwork, communication, strategic thinking and leadership — in all the same ways that traditional sports are and then some.
Today, esports is growing exponentially with 400 million fans worldwide who repeatedly pack out arenas. A recent survey shows that 72% of American teens play video games regularly. Currently, there are 200 colleges and universities offering almost 10 million dollars in scholarships. Establishing esports in high school enables students to do what they love and provides them with additional opportunities to earn scholastic recognition.
