eSports UE 4-6

Grade Levels: 4-6
Purpose:

eSports is a team of students playing a particular video game in a highly-organized, competitive environment.  Students will learn about the world of eSports, gaming skills, gaming sportsmanship, and how to compete against others in a Christ-honoring manner. 

CHCA is one of a limited number of schools in the country offering eSports at this level; therefore most of our gameplay will be in our in-house league.  Opportunities to compete against other players or teams online may occur.

Game of Study and Competition:  Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros.
