About Indiana High School Esports

Indiana High School Esports hosts competitions that are community-focused events, open to participants of all Indiana high schools. We believe that esports should be well supported, not just sitting around and playing video games, and that’s why we have created our competition - it's more than just video games. Take a look at our site to find out more about ways to participate and start playing today!
