The Orange County High School Esports League, which kicked off its inaugural season on Jan. 31, is hosting a series of weekend workshops to help players hone their skills, learn more about the league and meet their fellow gamers in person.

dozens of students sit in front of computers participating in online gaming at UC IrvineFrom Feb. 17 through March 24, sessions covering such topics as building a gaming PC, lane strategy and casting will be held from 9 a.m. to noon every Saturday at the Esports Arena on the UCI campus.
