This article explains how to sign up for a Middle School Esports League account in order to register for MSEL competitions. Please visit our TECH HELP section for assistance with whitelisting, PC minimum/recommended specs, and more. 

Signing Up

  • Sign up for a free account on the MSEL website.
    • You will be guided through the team creation process to join the MSEL Community. 
    • If you have already created your team, log in and skip to the "Adding Team Members" section of this guide.
  • An educator (school official) must be the team admin for the MSEL school team.
  • New accounts will be prompted to set at least one game connection.
    • Educators are welcome to skip this step by clicking "Skip all" in the bottom right of the window. 
    • If you are an educator taking over an existing MSEL team, please reach out to for assistance. 

Adding Team Members 

  • Your regional success agent will generate user accounts that can be assigned to students. 
  • If you are unaware of who your success agent is, reach out to
  • Provide a # of accounts needed for your students. 
  • You will receive a spreadsheet containing a list of generic usernames and login information that can be assigned to your students.
    • This will be what they use to gain access to the MSEL platform. 
  • Please do not edit any of the data on GenE to contain the personal information of students.

Adding Game Connections (Post Sign-up)

"Game Connection" is a catch-all term for "screen name", "gamertag", "in-game name", etc. Students must provide a game connection for each game they wish to play. 

  • Click “Game Connection” on the left-hand navigation.
  • Click “Add Game Connection”, select the game, enter your screen name for that game, and save.
  • If applicable, include the numbers in the game connection as well (e.g. Nintendo Switch Friend Code).

Creating Rosters 

Rosters are the specific groups of students that will play games. Students must be placed on a roster to compete in a team-based game.

  • Click “Rosters” on your team page.
  • Click “Create New”, name your roster, and select what game it is for.
  • Click “Add Members” and select what team members you want on the roster.
    • If a student does not appear in this list, they need to add the appropriate game connection (see above section)


Registering for a Tournament 

  • Click "Tournaments" in the left-hand navigation menu. 
  • Select "Discover" at the top of the page.
  • Search for "MSEL" in the search bar. Alternatively, check the "Joined Communities" box below.
  • Select the tournament you want to register for and click “Register Now”.
  • Select the roster you wish to register and click “Register Now”.

If you need further registration assistance, please schedule a call with your regional success agent here.
