Playing video games is fun, but playing online multiplayer games against teams from other schools—just like a physical sports league—is a great way to bring students’ gaming skills up a level. The Stride Esports League gives students an online platform to challenge their peers across the nation while learning teambuilding and communication skills. Coaches strive to bring out the best in their players, helping them balance esports with school and other commitments so eligible students can engage in some serious play.
Students can choose to play in two free esports leagues: Rocket League (for everyone) and League of Legends (for teens). Described as “soccer with rocket-powered cars,” Rocket League includes up to four players on each of two teams. Over the course of a match, players use rocket-powered vehicles to hit a ball into their opponent’s goal to score points.
League of Legends is a battle game with a top-down view. Teams work together to win, usually by destroying the core building (called the Nexus) in the enemy team’s base after bypassing a line of defensive structures called turrets, or towers.
The website includes instructions on how to download and run the programs included in the Stride Esports League.
