The High School Starleague strives towards providing high schoolers with a fun, competitive, and rewarding eSports experience, similar to traditional high school sports. Our mission is to promote eSports as a positive experience, so it can one day be considered as legitimate as traditional sports such as football or basketball. We also aim to eventually bring eSports to schools in a curriculum based manner in order to achieve balance between schools and gaming.
Although the High School Starleague staff consists of students scattered across North America, we are all dedicated individuals who have come to work together due to a common goal to progress high school eSports. Because the eSports field is exponentially expanding, we are constantly adding new staff to our team.
Good sportsmanship and manners are just as important on the internet as they are in real life. Often, during online gameplay, tempers flare, maturity is forgotten, and respectful language escapes us. Our administrators work closely with teams to ensure that the HSL remains a clean and mature environment. Likewise, we enforce our rules and keep constant watch over our tournaments to ensure that cheating and dishonesty are quickly addressed.
Education and Development
The High School Starleague places emphasis on a solid education. We work to ensure that every player is enrolled in school and is scheduled to graduate. We also carefully check for enrollment before distributing our scholarship prizes.
Peer-to-peer learning supported by the Internet will be an important mode of learning for future professionals. And the young geeks at HSL and HSL Dota are showing us how electronic sports like StarCraft II can nurture such skills.Jongming Kow, University of Hong Kong
I would like it to see e-sports achieve the same level of popularity we see in sports such as MMA or Skateboarding. The scene needs to break through that barrier where it’s got enough of a main stream draw in NA to land bigger sponsorships from household names like Nike or Best Buy. Things like HSL are great examples of the kind of programs I would like to see more of for younger players trying to get started.Matthew Munk, GGWP Apparel
Despite the minor problems and pushback, the future is looking bright for the High School Starleague. Words can not express how excited I am to sign my future daughter or son up for peewee Starcraft.Andrew Groen, Penny Arcade Report
