Hello and welcome back to HSL for 2020, or welcome if you are new! 

We are pleased to announce the return of HSL for 2020, proudly sponsored by Vodafone New Zealand. This year we will once again be offering the chance for Australasian high school students to participate in both Clash Royale and Dota 2

Registrations are now open for both titles. Sign-ups close 11:59pm NZDT Sunday 23rd February 2020 so make sure to sign your team(s) up sooner rather than later. Schools are welcome to have more than one team in each game, however please note each student can only play in 1 Clash Royale team and 1 Dota 2 team per split.

If you're a student, teacher or parent and aren't entirely sure what HSL is, no worries! We've popped a brief explanation below and have a handy FAQ page to answer all your questions. Alternatively you can email our friendly team if your question is not listed or ask us in the Discord servers.

The High School League (HSL) is an inter-school esports tournament that provides Australian and New Zealand high school students with a fun, competitive, and rewarding esports experience. It operates extremely similarly to traditional high school sports. We promote esports as a positive activity that opens up team building, leadership and self-improvement opportunities to a wider range of students outside the traditional field and court sports.

HSL esports matches are sometimes broadcast weekly live on, an online live-streaming gaming platform similar to YouTube, and on Sky Sport in New Zealand. These matches are commentated over live from the LPL Studios in Auckland, New Zealand similar to traditional sports games broadcast on television. Teachers, students and parents can tune in to watch their school team and support players in real time.

We encourage schools to ensure that the motivating factor to be eligible to play is that a student applies themselves to their school work. Remaining eligible to play, and having fun with teammates, is paramount!
