Four County in first year of esports program

The esports program at Four County Career Center features 28 students on the varsity and junior varsity teams. As in any sport, these students had to try out for a spot on these teams and must maintain their GPA and attend regular after-school practices. This is the first year of esports availability at FCCC Esports involves organized, coached and competitive online video gaming aimed at building teamwork, communication, hard work, strategy and perseverance. Students compete in the fall esports matches in League of Legends, Overwatch and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, all approved for teen players in terms of content. Students compete against one of the 100 teams in Ohio weekly.
