Welcome to HSL Split 1 2020!
LetsPlay.Live, Australasia’s leading esports tournament platform & broadcaster, are delighted to announce the return of High School League for 2020.
This is our fourth consecutive year of High School League and our second year running Clash Royale after a hugely popular 2019 split. HSL are excited to announce that our Split 1 2020 Clash Royale matches will be broadcast live on Twitch every Monday night at 6PM NZDT!
Registration for Split 1 2020 is now open for high school students across ANZ, with the opportunity for more than one team per school to compete. For more information on registration, please see our FAQ for teachers and students.
The first round of Clash Royale tournaments begins the week of Monday 2nd March 2020 and will run for 8 weeks. Dota 2 will also be available for students to enter, with matches taking place on Wednesdays.
The top two teams from the initial Clash Royale seeds will battle it out in a grand final event on 2nd May.
What is High School League?
HSL is a free Trans-Tasman inter-school esports tournament for high school students in Australia and New Zealand. The league offers an opportunity for students to compete in a competitive esports environment, working together as a team and representing their school - similar to traditional high school sports.

“For some students, HSL is the first time the student is actively pushing themselves to achieve a challenging goal. This self-motivation allows the development of important skills such as communication and teamwork” says Danny Chang, Teacher and HSL supervisor at Mt Roskill Grammar.
“The success we have had has evolved around teamwork and communication” adds Vincent Lo, former Captain of the MAGS HSL team. “We ensure that each and every one of us talk as much as we can during the match as communication in a team is the key to success”.
About Clash Royale
Clash Royale is a mobile app video game developed and published by Supercell. The game combines elements from collectible card games, tower defense, and multiplayer online battle arena in 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 modes. It combines skills such as strategic planning, improvisation, reactive decision-making and planning ahead to execute strategies. Competitors can work together to defeat enemy teams or play on their own against other single players.
The High School League aspires to provide high schoolers with a fun, competitive, and rewarding esports experience, similar to traditional high school sports. We promote esports as a positive experience that opens up sports team building, leadership opportunities and self-improvement to a wider range of students outside traditional seasonal field and court sports.
