PlayVS Fortnite competitions are some of the best ways for up and coming amateur players to showcase their skills and compete for over $230,000 in scholarship money.

Fortnite is available cross-platform and in a number of formats for amateurs to compete in for free thanks to PlayVS. Here's how to sign up to play Fortnite in PlayVS Youth and College leagues.

PlayVS Fortnite: How to Sign Up

For those aged 13 to 18 in the U.S. and Canada, signing up for a PlayVS Youth League is their best bet since there aren't many complicated restrictions that can be limited with their scholastic leagues—such as the requirement for having a coach. In PlayVS Youth Leagues, players are able to compete for free alone in Solos, or with teammates from anywhere they like in Trios.

Here is the link to sign up for a PlayVS account. After signing up, all of the things that make PlayVS a leading esports platform, such as the stats, scheduling, community events, support, trends and scouting are available. Be sure to read up on their Fortnite Gameday Protocol as well.

As we enter the new year, the PlayVS Spring 2021 will soon begin for Fortnite. Players interested in competing must enroll by Feb. 26 to play in their next Youth League season kicking off March 1. At the moment, there is a waitlist though, so after making an account and rallying your squad, be sure to join it to make sure you are considered for a spot in one of the leagues.

PlayVS also hosts free College Leagues for students in any college or university in the U.S. or Canada. For those interested, be sure to check out more information on those opportunities here, and with your own campus' esports program.
