THE LARGEST LEAGUE FOR HIGH SCHOOL ESPORTS
COMPETITIONS ALL YEAR
As the largest community for high school gamers, we have opportunities to compete in events year-round. Led by our Fall and Spring Majors, which culminate in a Nationals event to crown national champions, HSEL provides competitions for anyone, and everyone, to participate in - whether you're a student looking to play for fun or someone who is looking to make a career out of gaming.
The High School Esports League has an official STEM.org accreditation for our competitions and experiences! Scholastic gaming is the bridge educators need to connect students with STEM and future success through the lens of something they love: video games. Our STEM.org accreditation gives your school access to grant and funding opportunities that you can use to cover the cost of joining HSEL or building a lab!
HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER
"I wish it had been around when I was going through high school...but it's definitely helped more than a few of my students feel success. "
THE IMPACT ON EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS
Make esports available to every student as a legitimate varsity level sport in high schools across the nation. We achieve this by making it easy for faculty to offer students an opportunity to engage in healthy esports competition, surrounded by peers, and supervised by teachers. Through organized esports competition students will tie their commitment to gaming to their success in academics and future careers.
