OTC eSports Tryouts FAQ

OTC eSports will hold open tryouts for our Varsity and Junior Varsity teams beginning February 2022 and then once every year in August for all positions. Additional tryouts throughout the spring semester prior to the next season of competition may also be available depending on team composition.

Previously participating team members will be required to go through the tryout process as well as applicants and be chosen based on the same grading criteria.

Tryouts are generally considered to be in person, but other arrangements can be made at the coach’s discretion.

All applicants are required to participate in the official team discord server.

OTC eSports is looking for players not only with top skills, but who work effectively in a team atmosphere, respond well to coaching and feedback, and demonstrate a positive and inclusive attitude and dedication to lead OTC eSports to the top ranks of collegiate eSports.
