Helping young learners through their passions.

Throughout each season, Flaktest Gaming provides young people the opportunity to represent their school in competitive eSports. While participating, students learn about “responsible online gaming” and “competitive online gaming”, and develop a variety of soft skills critical for academic and personal success. You can find out more about how Flaktest Gaming empowers young people, familes, schools and the community in our upcoming articles that touch on the coursework we are introducing in Season One.

Flaktest Gaming localises the global eSports and gaming scene to leverage personal and academic outcomes for young people. This is done through Interschool eSports tournaments and community events.

The origins of Flaktest Gaming

Flaktest Gaming is the brainchild of Brett Sullivan, a passionate educator who has been working with adolescents for many years. An avid gamer himself, Brett was inspired by the possibilities offered by competitive eSports to give student gamers access to something beyond simple entertainment

Collaboration, teamwork and resilience are all crucial skills in our increasingly interconnected, but often socially isolating world. Brett and the Flaktest Gaming team got together to figure out a way to take a popular past-time that was traditionally seen as isolating, and turn it into something fun that promotes a sense of community, achievement, leadership and good spirited competition. He established Flaktest Gaming as a means by which to take gaming as an existing area of interest for youth and leverage it towards personal achievement, academic outcomes, responsible online gaming and active citizenship.

Flaktest Gaming is a 100% owned and operated organisation. This means every Flaktest Gaming event has been conceived, orchestrated, and run exclusively by Flaktest Gaming and our volunteers.

The league is made up of a diverse group of youth, from all educational institutions and local communities. In 2017, Flaktest Gaming will be introduced nationally, and registrations commence at the beginning of Term 1 2017.
