The growth of esports starts at school level. Schools are the breeding ground where champions are fashioned by schools that have the interest of learners at heart.

Thus it is not surprising to see that many Protea Esports Teams that participated in International Esports events are learners.

It is not unusual to find a portion of such teams to be learners. Team selection underpins Mind Sports South Africa's faith in promoting learners into the upper echelons and giving as many players as possible the chance to excel at the highest levels.

2019 saw North West University (NWU) take a very active interest in esports due to the fact that only MSSA's school championships and leagues are official in nature in which players are able to earn provincial and national colours and has any form of official recognition.

NWU's commitment has held firm over the years and has not wavered once.

MSSA's school championships and the NWU High School League too have un strictly in adherence to the laws in South Africa and take into account the physical and mental health of the participants.

Thus all games are played under acceptable supervision to prohibit unsavoury practices. As a  result, age restrictions are enforced much to the chagrin of a number of recreational gamers. It must always be remembered that games exist within society's norms.

MSSA is thus totally committed to ensure the validity of the event, the results attained, and the colours awarded.

The esports titles to be played in all MSSA's school championships and leagues are as follows:

aCounter Strike 2PC5 v 5
bValorantPC/console5 v 5
