Sherman Parks and Recreation has joined forces with GGLeagues, an online esports gaming company, to bring in a new program that offers players a safe and fun way to participate in a community activity from home.
We are excited to be offering this great new opportunity. Not only will the esports experience provide players with a safe alternative to getting together in person, it also provides a great opportunity to compete in an environment for those that may not be able to or choose not to play in traditional sports.
Spring 2023 Season Leagues (April Thru June)
Rocket League (1v1 and 3v3, any device)
Madden22 (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X)
Super Smash Bros. (Nintendo Switch)
Fortnite (Solos and Duos, any device) *No youth (8-12 years) Division*
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo Switch)
There are three age groups: youth division (ages 8-12), teen division (ages 13-18), adult division (ages 18+). The season starts the week of April 17th with games being played on varying days depending on the game title. Players will participate from their own homes and by purchasing a GGLeagues Spring esports pass for $40, can compete in as many different games as they would like. The registration deadline for the Spring season is April 10th.
Throughout 2023 GGLeagues will be offering esports leagues, educational events, free gaming events, and more in your community. Leagues will be run online through GGLeagues and will consist of an eight-week season. Games will be at the same time and day each week with a flexible rescheduling policy. At the end of the season, players will participate in a two week playoff and championship event to crown the champion.
All players need to register through the Sherman Parks and Recreation Club Page on GGLeagues and the winner of the league will be crowned the champion of the State of Texas. Winners for each region will receive a GGLeagues champion shirt and medal!
To play, you must have a console/computer to play on, email address, own the game you are registering to play and have the ability to play live. All games are monitored by GGLeagues and players are held to a code of conduct to maintain a fun and safe gaming atmosphere.
This is new to us and possibly to you as well. We have lots of great information to share, but can’t fit it all here. https://www.ggleagues.com/page/esports-passes.
