Suwannee Middle School has created the first PC based middle school Esports club in Florida. Esports is a growing extracurricular activity that allows students to join a team and compete with other schools around the country. At Suwannee Middle School, we will be competing through the game Rocket League. Rocket League is loosely defined as “car soccer”. Teams of three players compete with another team of three. The goal is to get the soccer ball into the appropriate net before time expires. 

Our team meets every Thursday after school in room 1205. Players, called Scholar Players, must maintain a 2.0 average and abide by the club’s Code of Conduct in order to compete. Practices are open to all students interested, provided they have parent permission and have signed the Code of Conduct. Club sponsors are also planning a Parent Night for all interested in supporting the SMS Esports Club. SRO Jacob Williamson and teacher Tammy Neil are sponsoring the club at SMS.

We will begin scrimmages this Thursday (1/23/2020) after school in my classroom. Our first official match is scheduled for Feb. 20 against the FH Knights (New Jersey). All are welcome to attend. There will be multiple games happening at the same time.
