SHEBOYGAN — Sheboygan North High School is joining the esports field with two new competitive teams.
The high school will have both a varsity and junior varsity team, with five members in each team.
The teams started an eight-week division schedule last week and hope to be a part of the state championship on March 21.
Sheboygan North physics teacher Dan Dielentheis is coaching the teams, which are part of the Wisconsin High School Esports Association.
“I wanted to coach this team because it gives me the chance to share traditional ‘sports’ values to kids that might otherwise never join a traditional sport. Skills like teamwork, staying calm and focused, time management, critical thinking, and a host of other skills can be very specific to esports,” said Dielentheis in a press release.
