What does Youth Esports look like?
Youth Esports tournaments are currently held during Term 2 and Term 3. Each tournament is 10 weeks long, with “Match Days” taking place each Saturday between the times of 10AM AWST and 2PM AWST. On occasion, matches are held during weekdays after school hours.
Where is Youth Esports played?
Youth Esports matches are held online up until the Grand Finals. Grand Final matches are typically live, large-scale events present unique opportunities for Youth Esports Clubs and players to perform in front of large audiences.
While most esports matches are held online, Flaktest works with local businesses and schools in developing physical safe spaces to play and compete at high performance arenas.
Youth Esports tournaments typically follow a league format, in which each team will verse every other team at least once in the league.
Flaktest will send Match Fixtures to Youth Esports Clubs and their respective leaders 4 weeks prior to the first match, giving ample time for teams to organise themselves for the competition.
Captains roles and Match Days
During the Match Days, Captains organise matches with their opposing teams and play there respective games. Captains roles are critical in the organisation and scoring of each match. Captains are to be active on the Flaktest Discord Channel during each Match Day and if any further organisation needs to take place. A typical Youth Esports match will take between 40 and 75 minutes to complete.
