Champlain Club Esports (CCE) is the largest student-run organization at Champlain College. Students created CCE in 2016, and over time they evolved the program into what it is today. CCE continues to build on its success by offering new teams, games, and competitive opportunities to our dedicated community of esports competitors, event coordinators, and media production enthusiasts.

An Esports Program 10 Years in the Making

Champlain Club Esports has been around for a decade now, in one form or another. The program began when Champlain League Gaming was established in 2012. Champlain League Gaming then changed to be Champlain Club Esports in 2016, and it has continued evolving to add varsity teams and multiple non-competing positions in 2022. We are extremely passionate, and have nearly a dozen teams participating in 8 different titles.

CCE fosters a sense of community where anyone can participate in esports at any level. The club structure allows for anyone regardless of skill level to participate on any team and form new teams for any game they want.

Our top teams play as Champ Blue representing the best the club has to offer, while our Green and Teal teams follow closely, representing the school at all levels of play.

Extra Life

Every year CCE hosts a massive charity event called Extra Life. Extra Life has been an event that CCE has been hosting for 4 years now, and each year we have raised more and more money for charity. Last semester we raised over $5000 and we plan to raise even more money in the years to come.
