We play in the National Esports Champions League (NECL). The NECL runs a Fall, Winter, and Spring season. Each week during a season our teams compete against other teams from all over the country, building to a championship tournament where the NECL crowns a national champion. The NECL also hosts professional style tournaments during the season.
We incorporate the club values into everything we do. Special attention is paid to these values during practice and match days, but players are expected to uphold these values at all times.
