Now more than ever educators, parents and students themselves are going through much harder times because the pandemic has put the world to a pause. Distance learning is here but it's not easier or better.


Students are stuck at home where they can easily get distracted while at the same time lack access to extra-curricular activities and can't participate in sports events because they are either postponed or cancelled.

This results in increased health concerns for the youth including psychological issues such as depression and anxiety due to a lack of positive news to deliver a sense of hope and certainty that everything will resume to normal.

How it Works


A new season is announced

The games for the season are revealed and the registration period starts. Schools who join the league are contacted to confirm status and terms for participation in the season.
Rulesets are generated with input from players and staff.

Practice and qualifiers

Athletes receive their hardware and begin practicing with their teammates. Faculty and community coaches help teams prepare for success. Teams begin to play qualifier matches for the main event of our virtual reality high school esports league season against other schools.

May the best school win!

Teams advance based on their qualifier results into bracket play, where they compete until only one team remains and is crowned the champion. Schools get connected with our partners to implement unique and tailored immersive experiences and use their VR hardware to upgrade their classrooms and can start preparing for future seasons of our league and beyond.
