Overwatch® High School Scholastic Tournament

Our Overwatch® High School Scholastic Tournament is back! NASEF is proud to offer the Overwatch® High School Scholastic Tournament in close partnership with Blizzard Entertainment!

After our Fall 2018 Overwatch® Season, we received a lot of feedback on team balancing, match scheduling and seeding. This year, we'd like to offer a more competitive experience for teams looking to play at a higher level. We're also changing up the format and dividing the competition into four different regions - West, Mountain, Central, and East. Many teams experienced schedule conflicts last year, and we hope by dividing regions by time zones, it could help alleviate those issues.

We're also offering another opportunity to compete for teams that don't qualify for Playoffs: Our Overwatch® Community Play-In Tournament.
