In 2018, the Mississippi High School Activities Association and the National Federation of State High School Associations sanctioned Esports as an activity for student participation. As part of this state initiative, each school has the opportunity to establish an Esports program through the PlayVS online platform. The season begins in October and culminates at the end of February. Rocket League is played in teams of three with SMITE and League of Legends is played in teams of five.
As part of this new Esports competition, Saint Stanislaus formed the Rock-A-Chaw Rockets. The team finished second in the state during its inaugural season in 2019.
