Northern Adelaide Senior College’s (NASC) students and the City of Salisbury’s NOADE League join together to host 3v3 twelve-team Rocket League eSports Tournament this Saturday at Salisbury Community Hub.
“We are excited to have the students be able to come in and provide a great experience for our community in a high-tech building,” says Cameron Hocking, Digital Literacy Programs Coordinator at the City of Salisbury.
“We rely on their expertise to cultivate a varied and engaging program of events, and also draw on the expertise of the students and staff who are well connected within gaming communities.”
NASC’s Academy of Game, Film and Animation program encourages students to complete their year 11-13 by learning game design, event management and live production within the games industry.
“We’re always going to continue developing the eSports partnerships we have with local councils as new games, platforms and venues have opened up,” says Ben Ryder, AGFA teacher at NASC.
“What we’re trying to do more of this year is having our student cohort drive the interest, and the development of our course curriculum.
“It’s about what keeps them hooked, while also keeping an eye on the industry and to show them what’s going to be on the horizon.”
Mr Hocking says that the partnership with NASC is a wonderful way to develop everyone’s knowledge and skills and build community.
“I hope every gamer gets the chance to come along and see how terrific the AGFA team are and how great NOADE League events are.”
Northern Adelaide Senior College’s AGFA class will co-host their next League of Legends eSports event March 20 at Salisbury Community Hub.
