For League and Valorant, there are 40 computers organized in 4 pods. 

For Mario Kart, there will be two stations in each room.

Student teams will be assigned to certain spots each round so students. Students will be moving around throughout the day so make sure parents and spectators know where you will be playing in person and on the livestream!

Students will need to log into their accounts or their school accounts however the game was purchased. If a student is using a console (Mario Kart is the exception), please let us know at so we can make sure to accommodate your players.

Teams need to bring their own keyboards, mice and headsets. If you're bringing a controller to play on PC, please make sure it is wired. 

There are no supplementary materials for play other than the PC and monitor.
Make sure all additional things (keyboards, mice, headphone) are brought with! 

Mario Kart

We are strongly encouraging everyone to bring their own Switch and their own dock for the Switch that can be labeled with your team's name on it. Teams may be moving around with their Switch to play against other teams, but we would like the docks to remain in their location. 

TVs will be provided (40 inch TVs is the current plan for most of the pods). 

Milk Toast!

Champions on the night will be able to toast to their victories in front of the Midwest Dairy backdrop!

Student and Spectator Hangouts

We will have spots for students to congregate and set their stuff down while they are waiting. This will be across from The Black Box. We are also developing a student lounge one block away that will have board, card, and video games at. Stay tuned for more info on this!

We will also have a spot for our colleges to visit with students, sponsors to show off the latest and greatest in esports and more! This will be in the upstairs classroom area. We will have several colleges who are interested in getting students for their rosters! This will be on the second floor of the Orpheum.
