    Welcome to NITRO ASL Junior!

    This new league, powered by both ACER NITRO and Clear Access, is here to accomdate our massively growing Primary School sector. The main difference is that teachers have a stronger hold on student accounts and play a bigger role in organising matches. This league is more flexible and aims to be a growing space for students.

    Middle of the term and strong

    Welcome to your midterm update. As the third week of NITRO ASL, powered by Clear Access comes to a close most schools understand the systems and are communicating. We will be rolling out some more tools of communication for teachers to opt into (that will be landing in their inboxes later today) with additional features being in the works to be added to the Discord.

    A major change coming in term 2 is the separation of Primary School and High Schools in several games. Previously the primary schools did not have enough players and teams to have a separate league but with the huge influx in 2024 it makes logistical sense so teachers can communicate and to ensure the skill level is more consistent. We are excited for the change and know the primary schools will appreciate the tools to make it easier to organise with their opponents.
