Fall 2020 Fortnite Champions

The Final Four in FIYA Fortnite came down to Bert Corona #3, El Segundo Middle School #4, Vaughn Next Learning Center, and Larchmont Charter LFP #2 who competed in our two Semi-Final matchups. With the Championships on the line, it was Bert Corona #3 and Larchmont LFP #2 who fought their ways to the epic final battle. A high-intensity, literally back-and-forth matchup to say the least, these teams competed neck to neck to the finish line and ultimately Bert Corona Charter School (#3) came out on top with FIYA's first ever Division 1 eSports Championship! Congratulations Bert Corona and Larchmont on a game well played and to all of our schools on such a successful season!

MORE ON FIYA ESPORTS

Because our traditional fall season sports were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, the vision of our eSports program was to provide a similar opportunity for our students to still participate in team-based, school sports. For the unfamiliar, eSports is short for electronic sports and over the last decade the sport of competitive video game playing has exploded.

While eSports can be played virtually anywhere, in the computer lab on campus or at-home, only requiring a computer or gaming console to participate, we hope that FIYA school teams will be organized like any other traditional sport - the team will have practices, participate as a group in the games, have team uniforms, hold its players accountable to academic/behavioral standards, etc. Please visit our eSports page for important Basic Guidelines About FIYA eSports.
