STUDENT FAQ

What if I have another activity right after school?


If you have an activity right after school and can’t make our first session, join the night session! Fenworks offers two program times to allow for the most student participation. The first session is held from 4:30pm-6:00pm CST and the latter session is held from 6:30pm-8:00pm CST!




What happens if I have to miss some days?


This is okay! Simply let your school's General Manager know that you will be gone. Please keep in mind that academic/extracurricular commitments are of utmost importance and no student will be penalized for their absences regarding these other commitments. 




Are we going to travel as a part of this program?


Students will not be required to travel to participate or compete within the program—the Fenworks program will be facilitated remotely. Students will, however, have the opportunity to travel to compete at the end-of-season state tournament!




When is the season?


The preseason will begin on December 6th, 2021 and will last up until Winter break. The start of the regular season will be starting on January 3rd, 2022 and will conclude with a state tournament tentatively on the weekend of April 2nd, 2022.




Will we compete? When will competitions be held?


The competitive regular season will begin Monday, January 3rd. Students will compete once every week against another regional school in the Fenworks program, and will gain points that will determine eligibility for the State Tournament at the end of the year. At the State Tournament, varsity students will compete for a championship, and JV students will compete for league cups.




What if I don’t want to compete and I just want to participate in the program?


We offer both as opportunities for you to decide! Of course, our program is oriented towards providing the most enjoyable competitive scene for esports, but we also include non-competitive titles to engage in with a moderated community too. If you want to just join the community without any competitive pressure, we will facilitate it just as passionately as the competitive program. 




How experienced are the coaches in the games that we are playing?


The coaches come from the top 5% to 0.01% of players in their respective titles that they teach in. All curriculum is put together in a collaborative way so that, in the case that one coach may not be as experienced as another in a title, students are still learning from a qualified, expert coach in each title. 




How are individual student fees handled?


Student fees will be handled and due according to the schools' individual considerations. Please consult your local Fenworks-partnered school for how, when, and where individual student fees are processed for the Fenworks program.




What does a typical day in the program look like?


Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday after school, at either 4:30 PM or 6:30 PM  (CST), students will log into Discord and join the “Fenworks Official" server. From here, students will be required to log into Hudl to view their daily lessons. Once students have viewed their lessons for the day, they receive both one-on-one and one-on-team live coaching from coaches in the top 5% to 0.01% of relative skill in their titles. There will be live replay review analyzations from clips submitted by students, as well as drills, practices, scrimages, and competitions held weekly!




Are there GPA requirements in regard to eligibility in the program?


As with other school-sponsored activities, Fenworks believes that academics always come first. The Fenworks team will enforce eligibility based on each school's extracurricular GPA requirements.
