RSAA Summer Preview – Fall Competition, 2022 Dates, Big Changes in 2023
An early peek of nearly everything we’re working on, and a request for feedback.
The governing body of College and High School League of Legends
Govern varsity competition for Riot’s games and foster the development of gaming as a meaningful and complementary part of the high school and college experiences.
Gaming serves to enrich the core college experience, not replace it. Ensure that students have the ability to focus on their education first, then gaming.
Develop systems and tools that ensure long-term health and stability for Riot, schools, conferences, students, and fans.
Uphold legitimacy, fairness, and transparency across all phases of competition.
