To all attendees - please feel free to add questions in the chat! We'll collect them and we'll open it up for QA at the end to all our panelists!

Any great ideas for recruiting remotely? That's been the biggest challenge since going remote. Word of mouth is slowly producing a trickle of kids but it's not the same as club rush, canvasing, media bulletins, etc.

I need PlayVS Among Us :)

There are some great resources available for games + esports and mental health, like TakeThis and YouAreRAD
Jordan Tsigas

Sports psych getting into collegiate esports could be really big, player mental feels like a roller coaster sometimes.

Games Hotline is another great resouce.

Burnout is a very real risk. Trying to talk about burnout online is very challenging, I'd be interesting in strategies you've used not only to manage burnout but recognize it during the pandemic.
Coach PlayVS
50:33
We will be discussing health in gaming including mental health in our next Coach Clinics.

If your players are exposed to each other socially, they can't be toxic or have as much drama - it helps foster friendship and open honesty
Alexander Wurden
01:14:07
Here's a bunch of one-stop-shop resources, including how to address that question and promote to parents, admin, etc.
Jordan Tsigas
01:16:03
I meant more in terms of involvement, the student can take classes online but esports internationally is more difficult when they are on 200 ping.
Callum Fletcher
01:17:32
Oh
Callum Fletcher
01:17:38
Jordan, unfortunately that's just the way it is.
Callum Fletcher
01:17:49
We cant control ping issues, so from a competitive standpoint there isn't much to be done.
Annabel Zinn
01:17:59
Jordan, you have to make that call based on pro/cons. Is their ping over their talent worth it?
Callum Fletcher
01:18:03
I think you can approach the student about an involvement piece like student working remote, if you can find meaningful work.
Annabel Zinn
01:18:47
Do your homework on games! But also lean into being passionate
Jordan Tsigas
01:19:20
The main thing we have thought of is seeing if he is interested in coaching, since he is a fairly high elo player.
Annabel Zinn
01:20:12
That's a decent alternative - giving a student a way to participate will help them to stay involved and invested
Jordan Tsigas
01:20:50
Yeah that's our goal, keep the player involved until they can get here in person.
Jordan Tsigas
01:23:28

I think we still only had like 10-12 hours a week during height of CLoL
Callum Fletcher
01:24:23
We probably hit closer to 20 during CLoL
Annabel Zinn
01:24:25
student-run programs are usually a little more loose with mandated hours
Coach PlayVS
01:25:01
Yes!
Annabel Zinn
01:25:11
