WHO CAN PLAY AND HOW DO I GET STARTED?
The Logitech Girls Gaming Community is a private community for girls whose schools are members of the Logitech Adopting Excellence initiative.
1. Apply to the Logitech Girls Gaming Community
- In order to register for the tournament, you must join the Logitech Girls Gaming community as a team.
- To do this, select “Communities” on the left-hand navigation and scroll through to Logitech Girls Gaming.
- Click “Learn More” to be taken to the main community page, and select “Join” in the upper right-hand corner.
- From the “select an option” dropdown, select “+ Create Team” and press continue to be able to be taken to the community terms where you can accept them and press continue.
- From here you can name your team and press “Continue” which will grant you access into the Logitech Girls Gaming community!
Note: In order to participate in this community tournament, you will need to create a new team through the community sign up. Your existing HSEL/MSEL team will not be able to participate. Teams can only be a part of one community at a time.
2. Adding Members (High Schools Only)
- When on your team page, click the “Members” tab at the top. Your members page will show you all your members, their game connections, and their assigned passes. By pressing the three dots to the right of their name, you can make them captains, add them to rosters, suspend, and delete them as well.
- When you are ready to invite students to your team click the “+ Add Member” button. You have two different invitation options. You can send them a direct email or you can generate and distribute an invitation link. If you want to send more than one email invite at a time, click the big plus sign to generate another email slot.
2.1. Adding Members (Middle Schools Only)
- Any student under the age of 13 years old, cannot sign up on our platform. For students under the age of 13 years old, the Customer Success Team will create the student accounts for your middle schools team.
- Once your team is approved, please create a brand new Gmail email account and edit the email address on your MSEL account. You can change the email tied to your account by clicking on your name in the upper right corner of the page and selecting "Settings". On your account settings page, change the email to your new gmail address and press save.
- Please inform your Customer Success Agent of the new email and how many student accounts your school needs. They will create the student accounts and provide you with a spreadsheet with the students login email, password, and generic first and last name.
- These members will be auto added to your members page (they do not need to be invited)
Note: Please do not have your students edit any information once logged in because these accounts cannot contain any personal information and can be reused for different students in future tournaments.
