Overview[edit]

The goal of the High School Starleague (HSL) is to promote eSports in secondary schools and to create a locale for secondary schools from around North America to compete against other schools in StarCraft and to enjoy StarCraft together. The HSL also aims to prepare their players for the Collegiate Starleague upon graduation by providing an opportunity to play under a similar system to accrue experience in a competitive eSports environment.

Eligibility[edit]

The High School Starleague is open to any and all Secondary Schools (9th - 12th Grade) from the AM Battle.net region; however it should be noted that English is the operative language of the league. Prior to the 2014-2015 season, teams must have had at minimum 5 players with at least 7 players for two substitutes being recommended. If a school does not have a sufficiently sized team, it could merge with other schools in its immediate region (with approval of the league administrators). In the 2014-2015 season, team sizes were locked to two, but schools may have multiple teams. The 2015-2016 season is planned to adopt a singles tournament format. Dropping out in the middle of a season or event is strongly discouraged, and may result in restrictions or other impositions deemed necessary in future events.

Registration[edit]

Prospective teams can register on the official HSL website around August for the Fall semesters and December for the Spring semesters in accordance with the school year schedule. Announcements regarding the creation of any such events and for new seasons will be posted on social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter, reddit.com/r/starcraft, TeamLiquid.net, and on the HSL website.
