What is typically involved in starting a club?

    Support from leadership

    If you’re yet to seek official support from your school’s leadership, the information in Learning Objectives and the Info Packs may help in approaching the conversation.

    The Club Info Pack is designed to assist with the general setting up and running of the club and the Sportsmanship Info Pack contains student learning materials as well as an extensive teaching guide that elaborates on the topic of sportsmanship and links to the National Curriculum.

    Gauging student interest

    We expect many schools will have a group of students who play League of Legends. You won’t be able to gauge this interest without getting the word out. We’ve created a range of flyer templates to help with this, which are available in the Club Info Pack.

    Some clubs start out primarily with students completely new to League of Legends. In these cases, students familiar with the game are usually quite keen to take on a mentorship role to help their peers learn the game.

    Some new players tend to prefer spectating a few games of LoL in the club sessions or school tournaments before deciding to join the club and learn the game.

    Getting parental consent

    When obtaining parental consent for any student that wants to join your LoL club, you’ll likely want to include the following in your consent form:

    • The Objective of your club
    • A student must be aged 13 years or older to create a League of Legends account
    • The League of Legends classification rating in your country (see related FAQ)
    • Students will be supervised by a school member of staff
    • Zero cost to set up and play League of Legends
