The WIAA is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with CSL Esports, operator of the nation’s largest collegiate esports league. The root of this partnership seeks to offer WIAA member schools an esports infrastructure solution with a competitive platform, broadcast production and mechanisms to amplify the inherent educational benefits of esports.
In 2020, the WIAA Representative Assembly paved the way for WIAA and CSL to offer esports to WIAA member schools by passing an amendment allowing the WIAA Executive Board to approve a two-year trial of a new sport/activity (WIAA Handbook Rule 7.2.3A).
In addition to establishing an esports infrastructure for the WIAA, CSL Esports will broadcast up to three matches per week featuring WIAA student-participants and their affiliated schools on Twitch.
