Frequently Asked Questions:

Is there a deadline to register? 

  • HSEL Major or Training Grounds: No. Registration for both Major and Training Grounds competitions remain open for the entire duration of the regular season. 
  • Premier League : Yes. Premier will open May 1st with a dead line to register by September 21st, 2023. For more information regarding our Premier League, please refer to our HSEL Fall 23 Premier article.

Is there a maximum/minimum number of students that I need on my organization?

There is no minimum or maximum number of students needed to form an organization, as long as a roster can meeting the minimum player count for a specific game. 

What is the difference between an organization and a roster?

A organization represents your school and encompasses all of your members, regardless of the game. You will only need to create one organization. A roster is the list of players playing a specific game. 

How many students can I add to my roster?

You may have up to twice the number of starting players required to play a game on your roster for organization games. For example, Rocket League requires you to have 3 players to play a match, which means you may have 6 students on your roster (eg. 3 starting players and 3 substitutes). For solo games, you can add all of your students to one roster.

How many rosters can I have for one game?

You may have as many rosters for one game as long as any individual student is not on multiple rosters for the same game/tournament.

Do we have to schedule our own matches?

No. Matches during the regular season are scheduled with set queue windows on specific days. You simply queue for your match at the day/time that best works for you.

For scheduled matches (Major playoffs and HSEL Premier), HSEL will schedule matches at a designated time, but orgs may coordinate reschedules.

How do I purchase battle passes? 

You may purchase battle passes through the dashboard by clicking on the Purchase Passes tab. If you require and invoice please email success@highschoolesportsleague.com.

Choose this option if you are an admin acquiring passes for other organization members.

  • Click “Purchase Passes” on the left-hand menu, then "Purchase" on the respective pass. 
  • Select the organization you are purchasing passes for from the dropdown menu and press continue.
  • Choose which members need a pass and press continue.
  • Select your payment method for the purchase.

How to Assign Individual Battle Passes

  • On your organization's page, select Battle Pass Inventory.
  • To assign your members battle passes, click the “Assign” button next to their name. 
    • Note: unlimited passes do not need to be assigned. 
  • If a competition requires battle passes, all members on a roster must be assigned a pass in order for that roster to be registered.
    • Note: Individual Battle passes are consumed once assigned to a student. Please contact support if a pass is assigned to an incorrect student by mistake.
