Games We Are Playing

The Esports program hosts teams for League of Legends, Rocket League, Call of Duty, Rainbow Six Siege, Madden, FIFA and NBA 2K. We work with the Anime and Gaming Society to add and remove games as interest allows. Scrimmaging and regular competition began in the 2021-22 academic year. We strive to provide an exciting gaming experience for students and others in the BVU and Storm Lake communities.


Compete and Build

The BVU Esports program focuses not only on competition, but also on building practical skills. Learn and develop skills in problem solving, communication, team-building and integrated learning. These experiences can help you in your career and life!
