Throughout the year, the NCL hosts a Fall and Spring Season. These competitions allow high school and college students to engage in exercises and challenges in a virtual stadium and gym to develop and improve their skills. Players of all levels encounter competition that mimics the real world. From these seasonal events, participants receive Scouting Reports, which assess and validate their skills among various cybersecurity learning objectives and can later be viewed by potential employers.
