The event was conceived by leadership in the Boise State University College of Education, the College of Innovation + Design, and specifically within the Directors of the Varsity Bronco eSports teams. Professors, staff, and deans of these colleges, with the support of other Boise State personnel (such as event services and information technology) are donating their time and effort to organize the event.
This is subject to change between now and when registration closes, but tentative schedule is:
- Check in begins at 9:30am
- First games start at 11am
- Finals are between 7-9pm
Advisors must be an employee or approved by the school to be a volunteer. If advisor is a volunteer, they will be asked to provide a contact name from the school that can confirm approval. Advisors will be asked to help students complete the registration process. (We will cc you on all instructions, updates that go out, etc.. and ask that you check in with them to assist. ) Advisors should provide general support and encouragement for students to practice and prepare as a team. Most imporantly, advisors chaperone the team at the event on April 21st. We will have volunteers supervising the game rooms, but they will be in the advisors charge outside of those rooms in the Student Union.
Free snacks and drinks will be available to players in the VIP lounge. The Student Union has multiple food venues including “all you can eat” student dining hall, Subway, Chick-fil-A and Starbucks that are open to everyone.
Watch other players, hangout in the VIP lounge, check out the game center in the Student Union, walk around campus with your advisor, just don’t go too far if you have an upcoming game. Late players forfeit the game.
Registration and Eligibility:
Cost for registration is $25 per player. All revenue from the event will be used to offset costs incurred in the event itself.
My eSports club represents many in my district. How many teams can we bring? Do I need to create sub-groups within our club to represent each high school? Are teams required to come from the same high school? Are we allowed to to only have one team per game?
Teams require a majority of players to represent a single school from the district. A school may enter more than one team to any event.
Players are required to register individually with parental/legal guardian permission.
Yes, however, the majority of players on any individual team must be enrolled in a single Idaho high school.
Homeschooled students may join a team for a traditional high school or form their own homeschool team, as long as all participants are high school aged and Idaho residents.
All participants agree upon registration to be at the tournament in person.
All participants must be enrolled in a high school or be homeschooled and high school aged.
We are only able to field 8 teams, so we have created a lottery system to pay. Lottery will be drawn and participants notified before April 7th.
Within 2 business days of pre-registering, you will receive confirmation that your team has secured a slot and links to officially register. (exception: League of Legends).
It depends on demand, but before April 7th.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact information. Links to officially register will not be sent to participants without a confirmed advisor.
No, everything is provided.
However, players are allowed to bring their own peripherals (controller, headset, mouse..), if they like.
You can plug a console controller into the PC. Our PC’s have standard drivers installed, but it is possible (but unlikely) that your remote requires a driver we do not have installed.
No new drivers will be installed at the tournament, so you would be required to play on provided equipment in that situation.
You will want to arrive early for your game time if you bring peripherals.
Games will start on time –or be forfeited.
Materials and Promotion:

Prizes and Swag:
