A Coaches Only League

This Summer is guaranteed to be the most exciting yet!

We’re branching out into multiple tiers of competitive League of Legends and Rocket League. We’ll be streaming as much as we can so be sure to catch all the matches on our Twitch Channel!

We’re super excited to incorporate weThink and GWOOP into our season! All teams will have the chance to participate in weThink evaluations after matches to gain valuable insight into their team dynamics and growth areas – with GWOOP Teams+, all our competitors will be training in fast twitch and reaction drills to level-up their in-game skills. 

New For Summer 2022!

We are very excited about our partnerships with GWOOP and weThink to bring pre-game training and team reviews to all participants!

Everyone Is in Teams+

Yup. We got ourselves a Teams+ account with GWOOP! This means all participants will be able to log into our Gwoop mega team and compete across the leaderboard in wamr-up games, drills, and other skills.

Each Tier will have their own leaderboards PLUS a global leaderboard!

Top participants will receive an amazon gift card!

weThink is Building Better Teams

League is a TEAM sport! And this summer we’re excited to continue partnering with weThink to make our teams even better.

By participating in quick post-game surveys, all competitors will be able to perform self and team evaluations (anonymous) to reflect on your own, and your teammates, soft skills such as Leadership, Communication, Critial Thinking, etc.

Surveys take only a few minutes but provide a wealth of insight into personal and team growth. We’ll be sharing how to connect these “life skills” into your gameplay and become better players and humans…and teams!

Bonus points – competitors who complete all 5 surveys will be entered into raffles for a chance at custom mousepads for your school team and a $250 PHNXGaming Foundational Grant!

    What are "Community" Practice Nights?

    Before teams are published, there will be “Community Practice Nights” for your tier. These practices are meant to mix players together before teams are made to get a idea of the competition or your future teammates. 

    Why is there a registration fee?

    This summer league is a fundraiser for The PHNXGaming Foundation. Players can register by making a donation to the appropriate fund. The registration fee is non-refundable. We will be using registration fees to fund grants and awards for the participating coaches’ teams. Registration donations may also be used to support programs of coaches not registered but who do register for future grant opportunities.

    Registration donations will not be used to pay or compensate organizers. 

    Captain and Coach Requirements

    Tier 1 and Tier 2 will have captains.

    Tier 3 will have captains and coaches.

    The captain will be a player who is playing on a game day. While a coach will be there to help the team get better and prepare for game day.

    3v3 Leaderboard

    Roster Rotation 

    June 4 – July 16 (no matches week of July 4)

    Saturdays @9:30 pm EST

     

     

    What does “Leaderboard Roster Rotation” mean? Each week you will play with different people – your end-of-game score will be tracked via a leaderboard (not your goals or the team’s win/loss but your SCORE based on assists, clears, saves, etc).

    This means you will be playing with varying ranks against varying ranks! It’s a great way to learn and play with many other people. We’ll check-in each week to confirm who is available and make teams!

    Register below to get the process started. We’ll start plopping people into the server.
