“Having this lab here is a lot easier so we don’t have to travel multiple miles to get to our lab now. We are very thankful we can have what we have.” If you build it they will come
“This is our esports lab that we’ve been trying so hard to get. Getting this here is so cool, and it’s amazing. Now instead of going to a classroom, we have a personal monitor and it’s so cool. It’s something we’ve been trying so hard to get.” Alex Montano is on the Smash Brothers team and he’s been excited to have a place to call their own.
That’s a sentiment that Matthew Cook, who plays on the Rocket League Team, shares. Now Provo High has a shiny new RGB-colored esports area those students can call home. This March, they became one of only 25 schools in North America that received a grant and equipment from Generation Esports.
That’s something that Norman and his students didn’t want to do, though; from the beginning, they wanted to be a team and stick together just like any other sport. “If you’re a basketball, they don’t say, hey, we’d love you to play basketball, but please play from home.” “Well, how do you have a club, a team that competes together but doesn’t at school, and they’re like, ‘Well, everybody else just plays from home.’”
Before this opportunity came though, Norman said that they had been told that an esports club was something they could do, just so long as it wasn’t at the school. “Back in November, I got a random email about a company that hosts the regional leagues, saying that they wanted to help grow the esports program throughout the country, and asked us to apply for an opportunity to get some computers,” Norman said.
