The Mission of the Independent Schools Esports League is to provide students, educators, and schools a low-cost, easy-to-implement esports league that emphasizes ease of play, engagement, and safety.

Easy of Play

Unlike other leagues, we remove hurdles and restrictions that make it difficult for new programs to become involved, such as removing complicated platforms, strict game match rules, and expensive hardware needs.



The league implements games that are appropriate for middle and high school students. Coaching guidelines have been established for good sportsmanship.

  • There are no associated league fees.

What equipment do I need?

  • One Nintendo Switch ($299), Nintendo Account ($20/year), game​ ($60)

How many kids do I need to start?

  • Ideally, you will need around three to four students.

What if I don't know anything about esports?

  • We provide support over the phone if you have any questions.
