How It Works
All clubs are provided with a Club Portal to invite their players to participate in the events. All players will play under the banner of their respective home club, representing your team officially in the tournaments or weeklies. Players will play from home and participate on a day it is scheduled. More information will be provided on date and time for these activities. Winning players and winning clubs will be acknowledged and celebrated on the state association's website.
Players will be required to own a copy of the video game featured in the events (weeklies, tournaments or ladders) they wish join, as well as a compatible device to play the game. Players must have an online subscription to their gaming device to allow for online play. Each video games will have different software and hardware requirements, so please check the details on your specific gaming event page.
Players will also have the opportunity for some casual play through the ladders system. If a player has free time and wishes to compete in a friendly match, they can challenge an opponent from the state association.
Who Can Participate?
Participants are assigned to different divisions according to their age groups and console type (PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch). Future titles that are crossplay compatible, such as Rocket League, will only be divided by age groups since all console types can play together, including PC. For the weeklies or tournaments, players between the ages of 10-19 may participate in the follow age groups:
- 12 & Under - Console Type (PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch)
- 13-15 Years of Age - Console Type (PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch)
- 16-19 Years of Age - Console Type (PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch)
Both players have the responsibility to report the final score by using their mobile devices to take a picture of the match results and uploading it on the portal.
Player - Player Communication
Players will be able to communicate with one another via a secure app to reschedule games in case of emergencies or unexpected family commitments. All player and league communication is monitored by league commissioner and league administration to ensure appropriate conduct and safety.
eSports players will register and be vetted via an Affiliate-led verification system like their current grass-playing contemporaries. You can find registration under the Register Today tab.
Parents are welcome to register and connect their account to the child’s account but are required to create a family account for those under the age of 13 in order to be COPPA compliant. Information required for registration include an email address, age, club name, zip code, console type, (PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch) and phone number.
