What is Esports?
In case you aren’t familiar with Esports, it’s the recreational and competitive environment that has been established through video games. To many people’s surprise, the amount of individuals that choose to engage in Esports through participation or viewership numbers in the hundreds of millions and has recently become over a billion dollar industry!
Similar to traditional sports, Esports is host to competitive leagues at the professional, amateur, collegiate, and high school levels. Becoming part of a high school Esports program allows students to begin seeing pathways and connections to similar fields and communities in high school and beyond.
What does Esports at BC look like?
The facility is a very exciting addition to our school! This first-phase of the program includes 6 professional-grade gaming PCs. From the towers and monitors, to the headsets, mice, keyboards, and the gaming chairs — everything is professional grade and we are ensuring that through our partnership with The Esports Company that our equipment maintains up-to-date.
The BC Esports Gaming Center also includes a central command-hub where our program advisors can easily mentor and coach our students. The space also works as a lounge and observatory for our players and spectators.
