As a player and a student
As a player and student, you play a special role in contributing in representing your school, your team and yourself to the public. Through your encouragement and good example, you can help assure that your team learn good sportsmanship and self-discipline during the match and when you’re offline. In Flaktest Gaming, you will learn to work together, to sacrifice for the good of the team, to enjoy winning and deal appropriately with defeat. Best of all, you’re going to have a great time!
Supporting your team
Supporting your team by giving encouragement and showing interest in them is very important. Help your team work toward skill improvement and good sportsmanship in every game. Remember that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than victory – that way your team will always be a winner despite the outcome of the game!
Always be positive
Lead by example for your team, your school and yourself. Become aware of this and work to be a positive role model. Applaud good plays by your team mates as well as good plays by the opposing team. Support all efforts to remove verbal abuse from youth esports activities. Positive reinforcement is the best way to help your team achieve their goals and overcome their natural fear of failure. Nobody likes to make mistakes. If your team does make one, remember it’s all part of learning, so encourage your team mate’s efforts and point out the good things your team accomplished.
Work, Rest and Play
Joining an esports league does not mean to play more games, but instead find meaning behind the games you play. Gaming is much more enjoyable with friends, and representing your school gives purpose behind practice. Balance is very important when it comes to activities and your education. Make sure to remain focused in the classroom, and complete your work to the best of your ability. Be an example to others and manage your time effectively. Support your team mates when they become distracted at school, and help them understand the importance behind effort in all aspects of life
