Spring 23 KHSAA Esports

This email is being sent to all KHSAA member high school Athletic Directors and current Esports Coaches

Good afternoon, everyone.  I hope your school year and your Esports program are both off to a great start!  I have had quite a few inquiries from schools wanting to sign up for Esports this fall, so it is good timing that last Tuesday’s Intro to Esports Webinar recording is now available for all to view.  Though primarily for new schools & teams, I think it would be beneficial for returning schools as PlayVS go over some important information for this upcoming fall season.

The recording can be found on PlayVS’ YouTube channel and is available for viewing at the following link:

A couple of notes concerning the webinar.  It was an Eastern Region webinar – not Kentucky-specific.  When they mention the emails that you use to communicate with PlayVS, please use the Kentucky-specific email address that is listed below (along with other important PlayVS website links and email addresses):
