Campus Recreation’s Trent Excalibur eSports Teams
Campus Recreation and Trent Athletics proudly support Trent’s participation in the Ontario Post-Secondary Esports league (the OPSE). Trent fields four teams in this league: our returning League of Legends and Rocket League teams, as well as our brand new Valorant and Overwatch teams. These teams come paired with the inaugural year of the Trent University eSports club, an on-campus club which provides opportunities for all Trent students to participate in eSports beyond the teams.
Tryouts registration lasted from July 24th, 2021, until September 18th, 2021. Tryouts took place between September 19th, 2021, and September 26th, 2021.
For info about tryouts in future years, please follow @trentexcalibur on Instagram and Twitter for official information, and @trentuesports on Instagram and Twitter for student-run updates.
The competitive season for the OPSE runs from October 2021 to March 2022, including weekly matches. Many games are officially streamed on the OPSE’s Twitch account, OPSEsports. The OPSE offers $30,000 in scholarship money, distributed amongst the top teams in the titles that it facilitates.
