Columbia Basin College (CBC), in Pasco, Washington, announced that it will be launching an esports team in the fall, the very first in the entire tri-city region.
The school plans to use the still-under-construction Student Recreation Center as the team’s home base once it’s completed. The center will feature 16 gaming stations, which include custom gaming computers and streaming set-ups.
“CBC couldn’t be more thrilled to bring esports to the tri-cities in this way,” said Jay Frank, Assistant VP of Communications & External Relations at Columbia Basin College. “Having a competitive team is going to provide so many lessons learned for our student-athletes and inspire them to continue on with college in their education.”
CBC also announced that it has begun its search for its first coach to lead the program.
