From the Georgia High School Association
Esports officially stands for electronic sports, not to be confused with video games. It’s much more than that. What sets it apart is the level of organized competitive gameplay between teams and its own strict set of rules and guidelines. Esports require a tremendous amount of critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity from players to achieve and sustain success. Schools and players in high school have had a great experience with the game, and continue to experience its benefits - in all the same ways of traditional sports and then some - Sense of Community, Character Development, Scholarship Opportunities, Increase Achievement, and STEM Engagement.
Today, esports is growing exponentially with 400 million fans worldwide who repeatedly pack out arenas. Currently, there are 200 colleges and universities offering almost 10 million dollars in scholarships. Establishing esports in high school enables students to do what they love and provides them with additional opportunities to earn scholastic recognition.
