Northcliff High School in action at the recent MSSA's 36th Gauteng Provincial Championships.
2018 has seen the introduction of the esports title Rocket League into all Mind Sports South Africa's senior provincial and national championships.
Rocket League is a vehicular soccer video game developed and published by Psyonix. The game was first released for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 (PS4) in July 2015. 
Described as "soccer, but with rocket-powered cars", Rocket League has one to four players assigned to each of the two teams, using rocket-powered vehicles to hit a ball into their opponent's goal and score points over the course of a match. The game includes single-player and multiplayer modes which can be played both locally and online, including cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows versions, as well as cross-play between Xbox One, Switch, and Windows versions. 
Rocket League saw over six million sales and 40 million players by the beginning of 2018. Rocket League has also been adopted as an esport.
