Scholastic esports play has the opportunity to truly address students in a new and unique way, reaching players who previously were unable or unwilling to participate in team activities. Early results are staggering as well, as esports has been shown to improve attendance and GPA.
For high schools, you are often dealing with minors and so when you create a High School organization and register your players, they all register under “Anonymous” accounts that are not visible to the larger player database. While other players can see that your participants exist and can see their scores, we do not show them any other connecting data (not even their public gamertag).
In order to unlock and promote their gameplay and their potential opportunities for college scholarships, parents must create an account and proceed through and account linking and account verification procedure in order to unlock the most of their child’s potential. Only with parental consent and guidance can a child on GYO interact with esports scouts.
For Colleges, you gain the benefits of a new fertile recruiting ground of students who have shown higher interests in higher education, maths, and sciences.
For both high schools and colleges, create your official organizational page so that students in your region can find you and learn more about your programs.
