*Updated - March 25th: Due to the COVID-19 situation in our Province, the E-Sports Trial season has been postponed indefinitely*
As mentioned during the 2019 “End of the Year Survey”, BCSS has been working to introduce a Esports trial season to our membership. We have continued to move forward with exploring Esports and its presence within British Columbia High Schools, with the growing popularity of the activity and the interest shown by our membership BCSS will be launching an Esports trial for the 2020 spring season of play.
Below you will find a document outlining the mechanics of the Esports trial season and our partner Wizzy who will be providing the platform for this trial. If your school is interested in participating in this trial season please contact BCSS Manager of Sport, Breanne Whyte at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the season.
It is important to note that this is strictly a trial season, Esports is not an official sport under the BCSS mandate and will not be using STARS registration as it is strictly a trial season. Participation and feedback is encouraged in order to measure the success of Esports in British Columbia and the potential of introducing it as a BCSS activity in the future.
