“I want to be a YouTube when I grow up!” If you have children at home, more than likely, you’ve heard this. And more than likely, your children are gaming this summer. And whether you want to accept it or not, there are many benefits to gaming online. There’s a huge gaming community and some of these gamers aren’t old enough to vote but are bringing in more money in eSports than we are as educators. If you’re like me, you’ve played some games with them and probably realized that your child can now outplay you! No worries. Remember that the purpose of games and gaming in general is having fun. And that’s what I’m inviting you to. A fun tournament.
Saturday, July 11th at 1pm CT, I will be holding a 2 vs. 2 parent/child Rocket League tournament. I invite any mother, father, aunt, uncle, or guardian to team up with your son, daughter, niece, or nephew and join. Here are the requirements:
- Have the Rocket League game on either PC, Xbox One, PS4, or Nintendo Switch
- A stable internet connection
- Have the online service for your particular platform and an account for that service. Your child will need an account as well. (Xbox Live, Playstation Plus, or Nintendo Switch Online)
- If you only have one online subscription in the family, make sure that you have enabled the online subscription to anyone who plays on that console. Check out the video instructions for Xbox One, Playstation 4, or Nintendo Switch.
- Make sure your settings are set to play online
How Do I Join?
To join this tournament, make sure you have a Voxer account, send me a DM on any Social Media platform or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Voxer handle. I will be sending out the tournament name and password Saturday morning. If you’re interested but can’t make it this Saturday, don’t worry. This will not be your only opportunity. I will be hosting more of these.
I hope to hear from you and get some practice in!
