Esports at Stevenson University
What is Esports?
Esports is a form of competitive gaming far beyond casual play. There are multiple games (sports) played, usually requiring 5-6 players per team. Teams function similarly to traditional sports in that players come together to form teams for each game and compete against other teams across the nation or even the world. Each team is coached by either a single coach or a coaching staff including analysts who break down the games and help players focus on points to improve upon. At the collegiate level, esports persists of students from all different majors and backgrounds who are interested in playing a certain game competitively or those who are interested in building a community around video game competing.
