Esports sponsor and chemistry teacher, Samuel Pippert, is a strong believer in spreading a more positive reputation for the Esports community.

“ I think it gets such a negative rap because of the toxicity,” Pippert said. “ So as an Esports coach, as a program we want to change that.”

Electronic Sports is a competitive and organized multiplayer league where competitors practice weekly before playoff season Nov.28-Dec.5.

 Games and practices are held in Room A216, there are two games you can play in Esports, “League of Legends” and “Rocket League”.

 “League of Legends” practice is on Mondays 4:30p.m.-5:30p.m. with games on Tuesdays. 

 “Rocket League” practice on Tuesdays 4:30 p.m.-5:30p.m. with games on Thursdays. 

Games can last till 5:30p.m. or a little longer. 

Esports also has a big game night on the last Friday of every month. You can play games that the club offers or you can bring your own. 

“We just come together, chill out and play different games. Sometimes we have specific games that I’ll offer, but kids are still able to bring their own consoles if they want or PC’s.” Pippert said. 

Esports is welcoming to all. 

“It’s just a relaxing, fun, and energetic environment,” junior Benjamin Ortiz said. “I just play video games a lot and it really interests me.”
