Thinking out the box.

Empangeni High School's athletes in action.
The Ladder has taken on greater significance in Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) with the requirement that any player that wishes to be selected needs to be ranked in the top ten of such ladder.

The Ladder is therefore a vital part of selection.

However, the Ladder too lends itself to assisting clubs raise their own competitive standards, as Empangeni High School attests.

Empangeni High School uses the ladder internally as a useful tool to prepare its athletes for the rigour of competition, and currently has two athletes ranked in the top ten in the High School Ladder for the FIFA '19 esport period/game.

Only a Registered Player that is ranked in the top ten positions on the ladder, may automatically qualify for National Team Selection. It is therefore vital for any player wishing to be considered for national team selection to actively participate in the Ladder.

The Ladder works on a system of challenges throughout the year in order to give clubs the opportunity to improve their teams/players' playing skills outside of the normal MSSA championships. The Ladder allows teams/players' to experiment with new tactics, combinations, etc.

Registered Players, through the Member Club to which they are affiliated, may challenge any Register Player on the ladder. Any Registered Player so challenged has 5 days within which to respond and play the match. Such rule allows the ladder to retain its dynamic nature and stops the challenged Registered Player from delaying unnecessarily.

However, any 
Registered Player challenged during any official MSSA event while both such Registered Players are participating in such event, and are paired by the umpire to play against each other, must play such challenge. This means that any or all games in a MSSA Regional, Provincial, and/or National Championship may count as ladder games.
