Announcing The Brave Jnr Rocket League Cup
The Brave Jnr Rocket League Cup is an esports showcase tournament for young people in Scotland.
This event is so much more than just a gaming competition, our goal is to raise awareness about the benefits of esports and the opportunities that come with it to parents, educators, youth workers and policy makers by having the tournament as a way to highlight the positive impact esports can have on young people and to demonstrate the wide variety of skills that come into play.
The tournament features 4 weeks of open qualifiers where teams of two will fight for a place in the live grand final but what makes this event unique is that participants, parents, youth leaders and teachers will not only be invited to participate in Rocket League lessons and watch the final stages with live commentary but they will also be offered the opportunity to attend training sessions and workshops on a variety of esports related topics.
Registration is open for young Rocket League hopefuls to have their chance to qualify for the finals with the first instance taking place on 9th July, though this is not the only chance to qualify, see the full schedule below for all dates.
