Esports Day: Coaching Good Sportsmanship in Esports: Teaching Players Better Ways to Compete Together


The booming expansion of esports as an industry has outpaced many of the player practices and grassroots community structures that originally defined the competitive cultural space. Building a more sustainable, diverse, and inclusive esports ecosystem will require an evolution in the way players compete and spectate together. In this talk, Morgan Romine will discuss how sportsmanship philosophies and the tools of traditional sports coaching can be applied to esports to help mediate social problems like toxicity, exclusion, team failure, and player burn-out.
