VFMAC introduced Esports to its lineup in the last year and it consists of more than just competitive video gaming. Esports at VFMAC includes practice days, team meetings, and tournament matches. Cadets who participate in Esports also participate in team building, critical analysis of games and matches played, discussion of game strategy and technology concepts.

High School Esports League (HSEL) is a Varsity Esports League which hosts competitions between high school students across the U.S. While our Academy is 7-12 and the HSEL is only High School, we also compete in the MSEL, Middle school Esports League.

In the first year, the Spring Major Tournament was the second full Esports season at VFMAC and we have TWO cadets who qualified for their respective national playoffs based on their incredible performances!

Cadet Anthony Guo, grade 9, placed 17th out of 950 high school competitors with a 7 wins, 1 loss record. His first playoff match will be versus Bayard Rustin HS (West Chester PA) on May 7th. He competes in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Nintendo Switch.

Cadet Amar Hulan, grade 8, placed 30th out of 450 middle school competitors with a 5 wins, 3 losses record. His first playoff match will be versus North Shore Middle School (Glen Head, NY) on May 10th. He competes in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Nintendo Switch.

Both HSEL and MSEL playoff matches will run through the week of May 9th through May 15th with championship matches held on May 20th and May 21st.

Good luck to both of our Cadets competing!
