The next Uptime United club season is set to run from Sept. 13th to Nov. 20th
HANOVER, Mass. ─ Uptime United is excited to announce that registration for the 2021 Fall Season is now underway at all of our 20-plus locations across the U.S. The season will begin on Sept. 13th and run for 10-weeks, culminating with the NECL National Championships on Nov. 20th.
Three game titles; Fortnite, Rocket League and Valorant, will be offered this season both in-person at one of our top of the line facilities or players can participate online from home if they are not within driving distance of one of our centers.
Each player that signs up for the season will be evaluated and placed on a team of players of their relative age and skill level. They will then each participate in a weekly practice and skills session, alongside their teammates, led by a professional STEM certified coach. Through these skill building opportunities, teammates will have the chance to build relationships with one another, learning play styles and developing strategies with the help of their coaches to maximize each player’s skills and create a successful team.
Teams will then have opportunities to try their skills against their peers each Saturday of the season through competition in the National Esports Champions League (NECL). There will be a National Championship for Fortnite, Rocket League and Valorant with scores each week tallying up to allow teams to qualify and play for the national title. Depending on the standings at the end of the regular season and the game in which they play, teams will be oriented into the corresponding bracket (ex: championship or consolation) for the National Championship and be pitted against one another one last time to determine the winner.
As mentioned before, Uptime United operates out of 20-plus different locations spanning from Arizona to Florida to Maine, allowing for players from all over the country to play on an Uptime United team (To see if one of our locations is near you, navigate to our locations page). If we have yet to expand to your area, we have an online option that still gives players a chance to be a part of a team and learn, but from the comfort of your home.
