To register your team, simply provide your team name along with each summoner name. Each member of your team needs to attend your school. You will also need a staff member from your school to send an email to MVHSGamingClub@gmail.com. This is only to confirm that all of your team members are legitimate students.

There have been a few questions that have come up that I wanted to answer for everyone:
1.) You do not need to be an official school team. All 5 members need to attend the same high school, you just need a staff member to send an email that says "I can confirm that these 5 players are students at ______________"
2.) Yes, there can be more than one team per school. Just because another team has signed up from your school does not mean that you are not allowed to participate.
3.) Also... please make school appropriate team names. It is hard to justify a High School League when I have to explain to a parent why the opposing team is called xXGangstaKillaz187BewbzXx.

Thank you

I'm sorry if you get that impression. We are not fans of anything irl. The graphics are amazing, but the gameplay is really annoying and repetitive.

All joking aside, one of our goals is to get the world to take eSports more seriously. eSports requires the same amount of discipline and skill that most physical sports do, except we don't have to pay all the fees for uniforms, physicals, transportation, or any other irl stuff. Before I die, I want my schools eSports to be treated with the same celebrity as the football team.

One more clarifying comment... This is an online tournament, not a physical one. No need to travel.

Do we get anything if we win ?

This event has been submitted as a prized event. We will announce prizes as soon as Riot gets back to us. Last time we hosted an event, Riot gave 1st place $20 RP + Triumphant Ryze.

You're not fans of anything irl..? That means in real life..if you didn't know...
