Ascension Christian High School (ACH) is proud to offer a new sports program for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year: eSports!
eSports is at every level of competition today! From international and national competitions to universities and high schools, eSports is becoming bigger every year. LHSAA has also noticed. The sports association offers eSports as a non-sanctioned sport with opportunities for scholarships. Competitive gamers at ACH will compete with other eSports teams through the state with the chance to qualify for regional and national tournaments. For students interested in joining the eSports team, please read the information below.
eSports is facilitated using a management platform from PlayVS. It is a super-easy way for coaches and players to manage their teams and sign up to play other high school eSports teams. For Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, ACH students will have the option to play Rocket League from their laptop or their Nintendo Switch. Students will need to download (free) Rocket League from Epic Games onto their device/s and keep it regularly updated. PlayVS highly recommends that you play with a controller.
eSports game days are always on Thursdays @ 4:00 pm. Gamers will need to report to Room 101 after school on game days. Gamers are required to attend regular practice sessions that are either on or off-campus. More details soon about practice options. Gameday matches are on-campus only.
Registration for eSports for the Fall 2021 team is open now through September 9, 2021. If you can’t play in the fall because of commitments to other sports, that is okay. Sign up and select the Spring 2022 season.
You have to be at least 13 years old to register for eSports.
If there is an athletic fee, it will be announced during the first week of school.
