The Riot Scholastic Association of America has entered its third year of governing varsity competition for Riot’s games, and fostering the development of gaming as a meaningful part of the high school and college experience. To help us align our efforts with the needs of education and higher learning, we are seeking to expand the size and expertise of our board of advisors. Our board has been invaluable in our decision-making process, including the expansion of the College Championship, the creation of the Selection Committee, and increased transparency around our sportsmanship check process.

We are accepting applications for 1-2 additional seats on our board of advisors. We are strongly considering applicants with a background in high school, university faculty or administration, or diversity and inclusion research. The position is a volunteer, external advisory role. Responsibilities include monthly calls with RSAA staff and advisors, occasional follow-up work between meetings, and (under normal circumstances) in-person meetings several times per year, with all travel expenses covered by Riot.

We prioritize the following criteria for advisors:

  • Scholastic Esports Experience – You have a nuanced view of scholastic esports, with active involvement in high school esports and knowledge of League of Legends. Experience administering, governing, coaching or teaching other high school activities or sports is also valued.
  • Skin in the Game – You are invested in the future of scholastic esports and how it supports students.
  • Diversity of Perspectives – You bring a unique perspective on behalf of your communities. We highly value advisor diversity.

 Selection process:

  • Open application process through August 2 – APPLY HERE
  • Top applicants will be interviewed by Riot staff and at least one RSAA advisor
  • Selections will be made on or around August 16
  • New board members to be announced August 30
