The esports industry – and collegiate landscape – is growing exponentially. Grays Harbor College is committed to staying on the cutting edge of development, forming the best competitive gaming experience. We do this through the four pillars of our program; competition, practice, behavior, and community.
COMPETITION: We provide the structure and resources for student gamers to participate in national leagues such as NJCAAE, NECC, and other tournament avenues. Regular competition is the bread and butter of esports. We have teams for competition in Overwatch 2, Rocket League, Smash Ultimate, Valorant, and Rainbow 6 Siege for the 2022-2023 academic year. We are also looking to add teams/players for Call of Duty: Vangaurd, Madden, FIFA, NBA2K, and iRacing!
PRACTICE: We firmly believe that the best way to get better at something is to practice doing it consistently. With a dedicated facility, staff, weekly scrims, professional coaching, and a reliable team, our players can go deeper into their game.
BEHAVIOR: Good sporting behavior is essential. Trash talking is discouraged and toxic behaviors like rage quitting, sending forfeits in game or toxic chat are not allowed. Players highlight positive plays or attributes, and focusing on poor performance - either on their own team or the opponent - is only used for competitive analysis, and never for attacking character.
COMMUNITY: GHC Esports has a community of game fans, in our regional community and across the state. We train students to broadcast our matches live, providing play-by-play and color commentary, and engage this audience in person and on stream in chat. We work with local business for sponsorships, and represent products and services in which we can be proud. We also hold tournaments throughout the year for students AND our awesome gaming community!
