Club of the Week: Canon-McMillan High School
Happy May! We’re starting a new month by introducing the esports club at Canon-McMillan High School, managed by Brian Klebanski in Washington County, PA. They’re looking to get completely set up with a club space next year, but in the meantime, utilize the cafeteria TVs to play Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Rocket League, and Mario Kart after school from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Club Manager Brian Klebanski says, “The Canon-McMillan Esports team is a collaboration of students with a common interest-based in video games. Our goal is to foster a welcoming community where students can network, team-build, gain industry experience, and improve problem-solving and strategic thinking. We currently have about 90 members and are growing.” While it’s Brian’s first time managing an esports club, he is no stranger to the gaming community. As a video game player all his life, he’s excited to be part of building the program from the ground up, benefitting his students along the way. He says students can connect and bond over their shared interest in video games, and it provides them the opportunity to participate in team activities similar to traditional sports.
We look forward to seeing the club grow even more, and welcome to Emerald Esports! Keep up with Canon-McMillan High School:
