Parking & Registration

If you are bringing any school vehicles NOT buses, you are able to park anywhere in the RecPlex parking lot. The Esports Arena and Basketball Courts are located on the right side of the building and that is where registration will be.

If you are bringing a bus, you are able to drop off students and equipment in front of the Main Entrance. We then ask you to park buses on the SE parking lot.

Parking for guests and spectators will be anywhere in the RecPlex parking lot as well.

Registration will be in front of the Esports Arena starting at 8:30 for Siege and 9:30 for SSBU.

The Schedule & Layout

The Esports Room - no food in this room!



Rainbow Six Siege

This section is for Rainbow Six Siege. There are 30 computers in four rows of six computers as well as two rows of three computers.

Student teams will be assigned to certain spots so students will know where they will be playing.

Students will need to log into their accounts or their school accounts via Epic, Steam, Ubisoft or however the game was purchased.

We are encouraging teams to bring their own keyboards, mice and headsets. If you're bringing a PS4 or PS5 please make sure it is wired.

There are no headsets in
the room! YOU MUST BRING
YOUR OWN HEADSETS!

Super Smash Bros Ultimate

This is where students will be playing SSBU. The room will be set up with TV's back to back in the middle while the furniture will be on the outsides (so the couches in this image will be either close to the wall or a minor barrier between SSBU and R6 Siege).

The TV on the far end to the left of the Esports sign may be used. Otherwise, the TVs will be on wheels and more at eye level. It will be the ones similar to the TV to the right of the mannequin.

We will also assign teams and games to certain computers. We encourage teams to bring their own Joycons and controllers for the Switch. If you plan to use a Game Cube controller then you need to bring the adapter for the Switch. Make sure you have a screenshot or a photo of your joycon or controller layout profiles.

We would also recommend bringing your Nintendo Switch.

The Basketball Court - no food in this room!



This is going to be the landing area where students are able to relax and chill out if they're not in a game. The bleachers will be out and will fit 350 people so plenty of space for our students!

NO FOOD OR DRINK IS
ALLOWED IN THIS AREA.

The courts are located to the left of the esports room.

The gym will also have some other items in it. We will have some a few vendors as well as college esports programs students are encouraged to check out in their free time.

We will also put some TVs in the court area so students can watch the streams that are happening in the other room.

The second floor also has tables available for students and spectators to sit at, but that space is limited.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE MUST BE OUT OF THE GYM BY 5:30. WE WILL HAVE GROUPS START MOVING THIER ITEMS AND EQUIPMENT INTO THE LOBBY OR THEIR VEHICLES AROUND 5PM.

Concessions



Here is a list of the concession stand food and prices that will be available during the day.

The concession stand area is located on the first floor on the left hand side of the RecPlex (the opposite direction of the Esports Arena).

The Lobby

This lobby area will be perfect for your fans and your students to sit, talk with other teams, and watch the games being played on the TVs that are in the lobby.

The Announcement Room



This room will be where students will congregate in the morning before the games begin. This is where we will go over rules, where people sit and other housekeeping items before we start the game.

This room is located to the left of the main entrance across from the concession stand and information desk.

We will be out of this room before noon and won't be used afterwards.

The Conference Room



This is going to be where college recruiters will be able to meet with students in a more private setting. This is located across from the basketball courts on the right side of the building.

Other Information

There will be an inside soccer turf field for students and the public to be able to go in and use for $5.
