WINTER 2021 ESPORTS IS NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!

Starting with the 2020-2021 school year, FIYA now offers eSports, open for participation to any and all elementary and middle schools (Students in 8th Grade & Below) including those outside of the Los Angeles area

For the unfamiliar, eSports is short for electronic sports and over the last decade the sport of competitive video game playing has exploded.  Many high schools offer eSports athletic teams and colleges now offer scholarships to attract the best eSports athletes to their campus.

Because eSports can provide another venue for our student-athletes to participate in a team environment, we structure our eSports offerings so that it accentuates the team concept and assists in instructing and learning the values of working as a team.  Connecting more students to be a part of their school community fulfills our mission of strengthening schools through sports.
