About us

HSEL’s mission is to engage with high school students and esports fans to improve life skills and educational outcomes. We will do this through the support of our parent company the Adelaide Football Club, and the wealth of experience that our partners and employees bring to the table.

We believe that esports is a healthy, challenging and fun activity that can play a formative role in building life skills, and we strive to create the highest quality experience for all participants.

Here is a letter from our HSEL Commissioner, Woody Wu

Greetings Everyone, and welcome to HSEL!

Our mission is to engage with high school students and esports fans to improve educational outcomes and individual life skills.

We are committed to delivering this mission and believe that esports should be available to every student as a legitimate sport in high schools across Australia so that students can participate, learn and compete in a safe environment.

It’s an exciting time and we welcome your support, feedback and sportsmanship moving forward.

See you on the rift!
