eSports are coming to Spring Valley High School!

We are very happy to announce that Spring Valley High School will be joining a state-wide pilot of eSports this year.

There will be an informational meeting on Thursday February 21 at 6:00 PM in the SVHS auditorium with Mr. Totten, Mr. McCloud and Mr. Black.

The pilot will feature the team-based 5v5 League of Legends.

eSports, or competitive video gaming, is projected to be in the top three of the most popular sports world-wide by 2025. After this pilot year, it is hoped that each high school and Career and Technical Center in WV will field a team that will include both a WVSSAC-sanctioned regular season and playoffs.
