|MSSA president (Amanda Pakade) is ensuring change of esports titles in MSSA's High School Online Championships.|
As such the championship is a beacon to many of the other national federations around the world which are attempting to copy the championship.
The championship has grown from strength to strength each and every year with more-and-more schools coming in. Of course there is also a drop-off among some schools where they are seemingly unable or unwilling to treat esports as a sport. However, those schools that are willing to treat esports as a sport, are able to see their learners reap the benefits of such when they earn provincial colours and even progress into the national squad, or dare I say it, the official Protea team.
The schools thus provide a solid foundation for manyy esports athletes where they can learn the discipline, ethics, cameraderie, and loyalty that they would in any other sport. It is the contribution made by such learners that will create the team that will represent South Africa at a future Olympic Games - if and when esports is admitted into such organisation.
It should be noted that MSSA's Online Championship is an official championship and all the teams in such have official sanction from the school principals and governing bodies that they represent. A school team that does not have full sanction from the school is not allowed to participate in such championship as MSSA honours and respects all schools' intellectual property (IP).
The schedule for MSSA's 9th Online Schools' Esports Championships is as follows:
