ESports at JMA
JMA's E-Sports teams were founded with the approval of the Jefferson Montessori Academy Council of Trustees. They began holding practices and meetings in January of 2020 as part of Friday's block schedule clubs. We joined HSEL (High School Esports League), the Nations oldest and largest esports league.
Schools in HSEL.
E-Sports is recognized by NMAA (different league).
HSEL curriculum is STEM.org accredited!
JMA's E-Athletes are held to high expectations:
We expect our e-athletes to achieve at a high level academically and to make appropriate decisions. Students may try out and participate as a team member by:
Exhibiting good conduct and behavior both in school and during practices and games.
Meeting the minimum academic requirements of no “D” or “F” grades in any classes.
Avoiding disciplinary action/make good decisions.
Commit to being at school.
Commit to being present for practices and games.
Furthermore, HSEL has strict rules for its teams and coaches. Please visit the following links for Tournament Rules and rules that apply specifically to Overwatch (Varsity) and Rocket League (Jr. Varsity).

Our Club Schedule & Stream
During the epidemic practice has been difficult as the majority of our players do not have gaming computers at home. We have however teamed with New Mexico Tech's esports so that those who can practice from home, can practice with a college team! We practice with New Mexico Tech Fridays from 6p - 8p and stream practices on our twitch.
