Arvada West Esports
Welcome to Arvada West's Esports Team
Esports is no longer just a hobby but is becoming a powerhouse in the sports world. From being on ESPN, having over 1.1 billion dollars in revenue, top colleges around the country offering scholarships to athletes, and top athletes making millions of dollars each year, it's hard to see why you wouldn't want to join in on the action!
Here at Arvada West, ALL PLAYERS ARE WELCOME! The games that we will be playing are League of Legends and Rocket League. Teams are open to any student who wants to play! We will focus on a three-tiered approach to success for our athletes.
All the games played at Arvada West require teamwork for success. We will be focusing on helping students communicate as a team and help them be a leader in the virtual and physical world. Teamwork is essential to our plan for success and these skills will translate to success in other aspects of students' life as well.
Esports is a way to get students scholarships to college and is potentially a future career. With over 130 college varsity programs last year, and Esports growing in popularity throughout the world, we want our students to understand that through their hard work they can see tangible benefits to their virtual games. We will look at having a professional online appearance, how to communicate with other teams and teammates, and how they can develop and become the best player they can be. A large part of our program is preparing students to be successful in the long term for a career in Esports and how they can stay physically and mentally fit.
At the end of the day, these are games. We won't remember all the plays, the grinding, or the hours of practice. What we will remember is the people we played with and played against. We will build a community in our team where we work towards the same goals: to grow as players, as people, and as a team. Respect for all players and opponents is a must for our team and any trolling, griefing, or disrespect will not be tolerated. We are representing Arvada West High School, and we will take pride in what we do. We are all gamers, just trying to have fun!
Currently there are two games that Colorado is playing competitively.
