Holding your first club meeting
A Youth Esports Club is new and exciting for students, teachers and families. The goal for this meeting is to not try and do too much: Your goal is to introduce the club to registered students and other students who may be interested in joining.
Step 1: State the purpose and goals of your club.
Introduce yourself and state the club’s purpose and goals. These can differ from school to school though we have provided some overarching goals to help you get started:
To promote esports as an enjoyable, safe and healthy activity for young people across all ability levels in the school and local community.
Our club aims to encourage the provision of opportunities for participation in esports by all members of the school and local community.
Step 2: Provide an overview of what games are offered at the club.
Provide a brief overview of the games and activities your Youth Esports Club will the students. For example:
- Three Fortnite Duos teams
- Three Overwatch teams
- Two Rocket League teams
- One DOTA 2 team
By providing constraints on the teams (considering the number of students in your club) it provides students the opportunity to reach out and make new friends as they form new teams.
Step 3: Define the actions to reach the clubs goals
Creating an action plan that relates to the club’s goals gives members a unique opportunity to contribute. For example, having students create flyers in Design classes to promote well being and safety online at the club. By setting realistic action students will find purpose and belonging in their role as members of your club.
Step 4: Assign duties (Next meeting)
At the following meeting you should assign leadership roles to help keep the club running smoothly. Inform students that each team will need a captain and each club will need a leadership team. Nominations Forms will be available next week for Club and Team captains, along with role descriptions at www.flaktest.com
