The Texas University Interscholastic League (UIL) announced youth esports development platform Vanta as their official esports sponsor. Vanta will introduce its free-to-compete leagues to the UIL’s more than 1,400 member schools, providing them with the opportunity to leverage esports coaches and development programming.
“We are pleased to have Vanta as an official sponsor and supporter of the University Interscholastic League,” said Dr. Charles Breithaupt, Executive Director of the UIL. “We are excited to follow the growth of esports and the many participation and personal development opportunities it offers young people in our state.”
Vanta’s programming focuses on in-game skill development, teamwork, communication, leadership, and other important life skills. UIL teams will now be able to use this exceptional platform to compete across major esports titles like Rocket League, League of Legends, VALORANT, Fortnite, Apex Legends, and much more.
As mentioned, these leagues are free-to-compete, and will provide Texas’ middle and high schools with more opportunities in competitive play than they could have ever imagined before a deal was struck.
