The TXWES Esports & Gaming Program is based on the three Cs: Competition, Creation, and Community.

• Competition: we field 7 games currently. Overwatch, League of Legends, Hearthstone, Smash Bros (Melee and Ultimate), FIFA and Madden. Our program is structured like any other athletic program on a college campus. In addition to practices and competitions, competitors are expected to take part in VOD/film reviews, leadership/skill development sessions, study halls, and real life work outs created by the director of our fitness center.

• Creation: Between our partnered page on Twitch and YouTube, we are building out a streaming, vlogging, and podcasting presence online so we are looking for both on air and behind the scenes talent for that. The hope with this piece is to not only provide a fun experience for all involved, but also let those creating this starting building out more of a portfolio to use in future employment.

• Community: this is the event management and social media side of things. We have Community Managers, office staff, and student volunteers already helping to brainstorm, plan, and execute events for our community both on a small and large scale. This is also the avenue for those that just want to attend events and not actually help run them.
