eSports competitions may soon be recognized in Ga. high schools


The future of high school sports in Georgia may soon take a high-tech turn.

From its conversation with James ‘Robin’ Hines, Jr., the executive director of the Georgia High School Association, 11Alive has learned as many as five organized eSports could quickly become available to high school students, perhaps this fall or next spring.

According to 11Alive’s Joe Floccari, approximately 45 Georgia high schools have expressed interest in eSports, even though this nascent-stage initiative has yet to be formalized (rules/regulations).

Once finalized, though, Floccari reports that scholastic eSports in Georgia would likely be monitored by, the nation’s official high school eSports league.
