Registration is now open for the City’s free virtual Rocket League tournament on Saturday, Sept. 18, as part of the Game On! event. This year, Game On! will run from Sept. 1 to 18, and feature engaging experiences to connect and celebrate the gaming community.
“Gaming is a fast-growing sector which blends together art, music, technology and innovation,” says Steve Lee-Young, Manager of Recreation and Culture Programs. “This year’s Game On! event will offer our community a chance to try their hand at many forms of gaming, while supporting local game developers and businesses.”
The virtual Rocket League tournament is hosted by Ontario-based video game business We Got Game and will be streamed live on the video game platform Twitch starting at 1 p.m. on Sept. 18. The tournament is open to all ages and skill levels, and advanced registration is required. Participants will also have the chance to win prizes. 
There will also be an escape room event at the Five Points Theatre at select times on September 3 and 4. Groups can be up to five people, but a minimum of four people in a group is required to participate. 
In addition to the tournament and escape room, Game On! will feature activities and programming that will allow participants to relive the nostalgia of retro video games, learn about esports and game development, and explore the world of cosplay.
Please note that COVID-19 safety procedures will be in effect, and in-person programming and safety requirements are subject to change and/or cancellation based on current COVID-19 regulations.
Game On! is hosted in partnership with Barrie Public Library’s Comic Con. To register for the virtual tournament or escape room events, and for more information on Game On! and how to participate, visit
