Press “Start” on your District’s Esports Program

Thu. September 21, 2023 | 9:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

You’ve heard about it in the news. Your students have been begging for it. Now it’s time to finally pick up the controller and hit “start” on your district’s esports program. But what are you supposed to do if you’re starting at Level 1?

Join the LTC’s Holly Kelly for a primer on kickstarting an esports program in your district. This multi-hour session will focus in on the background knowledge needed to initiate a successful esports program, including:

  • Game and league options
  • Current trends in esports
  • Coaching tips and strategies
  • Hardware/software needs and recommendations
  • Streaming and broadcasting options
  • Potential costs

This session will cover information relevant to elementary, middle, and high school program, too, so all teachers and administrators curious about esports in education are encouraged to attend.

Already have a fledgling esports program in your district? Join us for the opportunity to share your experiences and learn the latest best practices for maintaining a successful program across multiple grade levels.
