Position details :
There are many positions that make up an ESports team. We are not just players but also coaches, broadcasters, marketing, and tech support. Below are some details for each position.
Players : Players will compete in the game of Rocket League for practices, scrimages, and tournaments.
Coaches : Team players who exhibit exceptional skill in the game of Rocket League will help teach their fellow teammates how to be a better Rocket League player.
Broadcasters : Broadcasters will man the News Desk and are responsible for spectating team scrimmages and either recording them for Youtube content or streaming live for spectators. Broadcasters will also have microphones to commentate on the matches they are recording or broadcasting. Broadcasters will work directly with the Tech Support and Marketing roles to edit and refine our video content.
Marketing and content : In the marketing role you will help us get the word out to your fellow students, families, and the community about when recorded events or live streams will be available for spectators.
Tech Support : In the tech support role you will be helping the players, broadcasters, and marketers with any support they need including helping with their equipment or other technical issues that may arrise. You may also assist in the recording, live streaming, video editing, and uploading of content for spectators.
As this is our first year as a team these roles may evolve as we progress through the season. Everyone will get a chance to be a player! All team members will be able to experience all of these roles throughout the season.
Tri-District Tournament :
The Long Pond School Chargers ESports Team will compete against middle school students from Green Hills and Newton. More details and logistics of this tournament will be posted soon.

We recommend bringing in a gamepad with usb cable such as an XBox or Playstation controller if you prefer using the gamepad instead of a keyboard and mouse.
