    I am a teacher at PC West. We are going to start a team for this league!!! I would love to be on the advisory board! I have questions tho.
    1. What platforms are these games going to be on? PC vs Console (which Console)
    2. How many different teams can we have for each game?
    3. Are events/tournaments going to be in person only? Can we have tournaments (scrimmages) online
    4. Are we going to have qualifying events?
    5. Would you like to expand this E-Sports league beyond Oklahoma? I have taught in Texas for over 20 years
    6. At our big master/state event, could we have students bring games that they have made (from scratch) to demo them to others in attendance? I teach Computer Animation and Video game design and we are looking for a venue to display the stuff that will get made in the future
    7. Where is the friendly event in April going to be held?

    • admin  says:

      1. PC for those that can, Switch for Smash, Xbox 1 X for Madden and Rocket league, and iOS for clash.
      2. Right now, 1 team per games. Let’s get this going first and then we can evaluate.
      3. Yes. Definitely schedule “Practices” between schools. We are looking at doing that between teams.
      4. Yes. When the season starts, each “Match” will be a qualifying event. At the end of the season, the top 4 teams in each game will compete at the grand champions to determine state champion per team and overall school state champion.
      5. After the 19-20 season, definitely. Let’s get the first season under our belts and then evaluate.
      6. YES!!!! I would love to setup a demo lab that they could show off their work. I will even have media attend. GREAT IDEA!!!!
      7. Union in Tulsa. Depending on the interest and participation size, we may have it at our Innovation Lab.

    Will you be allowing personal student accounts for games such as League of Legends or will you restrict it to school only profiles (that they will have to level-up characters)?

    • admin  says:

      We will allow personal accounts. Same with Clash Royale. Other restrictions may be applied in regards to special skins, upgrades, etc…

  • Ashley Weibling  says:

    Is it too late to register for your April event. I am a teacher at Garber and have some students that are wanting to create an esports team.

    • admin  says:

      Not at all. I am going to announce more details at my conference on the 26th. It should not be an issue at all as long as you have administrative support for your site.

    • admin  says:

      Not yet. We are going to postpone the April event to after State testing has been completed so you still have time to sign up.

  • Linda  says:

    What are the system specs for using desktop computers?

    • admin  says:

      It does not need to be the exact same, but if you are hosting, all machines must be exact.
      My machines have the following specs:
      Main Features
       Gaming Desktop
       Processor: Intel Core i7-9700K
       Processor Speed: 3.60GHz
       RAM: 16GB
       Storage: 1TB HDD + 240GB SSD
       OS: Windows 10 Home

  • Charles Leslie  says:

    Where do we register for the April 20th event?
    What are the details for the event? Place and time?

    • admin  says:

      I am going to send out an email to all of the teams that have chosen to participate. We will coordinate a day/time as I have heard the April 20 date is a bad time due to testing.

  • Stanislaus Mudjialim  says:

    How would I be able to sign up as the Union team? Who do I ask to sign up?

    • admin  says:

      Union is a founding member so you just need to fill out the “Player Registration” page and the High School coach, Matt Long, will be in contact for try outs.

  • Stanislaus Mudjialim  says:

    How would I sign up for the Union team? Who do I ask for sponsor?

  • Skyler Roberts  says:

    Do you know if there are any plans with Jenks entering into the League? I am an alumni and would love see my high school compete. I am also the CEO for Recruit Rivals, a College Esports recruiting platform based here in Tulsa. We currently have a little over 34,000 students in the platform along with 300+ colleges around the United States. If there is anything we can do to help, we would be more than happy to!

    • admin  says:

      I have not heard if Jenks is participating, but I am sure they will join eventually. We will definitely keep you in mind and may lean on you for some advice.

  • Trip  says:

    Do you have to have a team to register, or can anybody in 9th through 12th grade register even without a team?

    • admin  says:

      You must have a school team to join. We are not allowing individuals to participate at this time.

  • Bobby  says:

    It says, “player registration“, at the top, does this mean that you do not NEED a team to enter? Can a student just enter by themself? If so, what happens if they do?

  • David  says:

    I am currently enrolled in the Union 9th grade center, to join, do I have to just fill out a player registration form and show up at tryouts?

    • admin  says:

      That information should be coming shortly.

  • Wilson  says:

    I’ve signed up for Union, when will the coach contact me about the tryouts?

  • Christopher Parker  says:

    I’m a teacher at Enid High School, and am looking at starting an eSports league in our school. The games (PC only at this time) I am looking at focusing on are:
    Overwatch
    Fortnite
    Apex Legends
    Rocket League
    League of Legends

    I would like to speak with someone regarding the possibility of starting this league, and if statewide competitions are possible. It would behoove each school to start their own league, much like with any extracurricular activity, to promote school pride and competition. While having a state-wide league for national competitions would be beneficial, within the state I feel it would be better to have individual leagues per-school.

    • admin  says:

      Chris, send me an email at esports@unionps.org and I will be happy to assist however I can.

  • Alex  says:

    When you say “team”, do you mean the whole school system or actual teams you make.

    • admin  says:

      Actual team members for the individual games.

  • Jim  says:

    Is the event still on for the 20th?

    • admin  says:

      No, it has been moved to May 18.

  • Erin Barnes  says:

    I sent an email like suggested, but I have not heard from anyone yet. I have a team ready to go and would love to get signed up.

    • admin  says:

      Unfortunately, OeSL is only available to 9-12 grade students in public k-12 schools.
