Your gamers will play, collaborate and socialize on teams with 4-7 members in their own age range as they build, battle and use their creativity and imagination. Super League even provides tech help and support, making this a great family-friendly event.
Each player will receive a free gaming t-shirt, encouraging team building and camaraderie. There’s even an opportunity for the winning team to evenly split a college scholarship.
