Why Learn How to Host an Esports Tournament?
If you are hoping to start a career in esports, this program is a great way to start. You’ll get hands-on experience with THE expert in high school and collegiate esports on how to organize and produce a professional-level event.
Even if broadcasting isn’t part of your career goals, the more information you have about “how the sausage is made” the better! While AVGL Academy is not an internship and no college credits will be given, it’s always good to show a broad range of extra-curricular activities and a thirst for knowledge.
Esports tournaments involve several moving parts. I know we make it LOOK easy, but you’ll learn how to deal with hiccups, coordinate with talent, and make sure everything goes smoothly.
These skills translate to other areas of your academic future such as:
- Event planning
A few things to note:
Open to high school students only
No college credits will be provided – HOWEVER, all participants will receive special rewards including an official signed and framed certification from AVGL and BoomTV!
