Join us next Tuesday, August 22, 2023, from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM ET, where our esports partner and provider, PlayVS, will be conducting an Intro to Esports Webinar to discuss the benefits of esports, what your school needs to get started, and review important dates for our upcoming Fall 2023 season. This webinar is recommended for all interest and experience levels.  You can RSVP HERE for the August 22 webinar.
