Athletics - Esports

The AIA and PlayVS are proud to announce league competition for esports with both a fall and spring season. 

Players compete from their respective campus, supervised by a coach. Currently through PlayVS, students can compete in teams of five for League of Legends and SMITE, and teams of three for Rocket League, three of the most popular titles in esports. Each school year is divided into two regular seasons, Fall and Spring, each with their own playoff season. Since esports is played online, there is no travel required throughout the regular season

“The addition of esports as an AIA activity exponentially increases the opportunities for students to take part in extracurriculars and represent their schools,” said David Hines, Executive Director, AIA. “Many of them wouldn’t necessarily suit up and play varsity sports. This allows for a large portion of high schoolers to be competitive in an area thought to be recreational, and to utilize much-needed teamwork skills.”
