Why esports?

Over the last few years esports has exploded and educational organizations like schools and universities have been trying to figure out how to integrate esports into instruction in the same way that UIL sports are integrated. Esports teams at the college and professional level have training days, workout routines and team building exercises to make sure they are “at the top of their game”!

WHY?

  • We don’t want our schools to miss out on this great opportunity, but we need to work together with the same goals.

  • We are here to show how esports as a whole can have a positive impact on student outcomes just like other sports.

  • There are millions of dollars in scholarships available to students who compete in esports at the collegiate level. We are helping drive awareness to this so students see more pathways to higher education.

  • We want the students of Texas to have a “SUPER BOWL” experience! We are asking major vendors, game companies, and other organization to both support and attend this event.
