eSports stands for electronic sports, but for middle and high school students, it is much more than that. eSports has changed the traditional meaning of “student-athlete” as it has been officially recognized as a sanctioned sport. eSports provides students with the opportunity to represent their schools through competitive gameplay while improving collaboration skills, strategic thinking skills, teamwork strategies, and communication skills. To participate in eSports, each student must be at least 13 years old and follow the strict rules and guidelines stated in The Garland ISD eSports handbook, which includes that students must be passing all classes and exhibit positive behaviors on and off campus.
We will be playing Rocket League this year. Students wanting to join eSports must be able to attend meetings every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. during the Rocket League season. For more information about joining contact Mr. Bedard in room 39.
