ES Arlington Community Caster Program

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY CASTER?

Our community caster program is designed to give aspiring casters the opportunity to develop their craft, grow their audience, and learn as part of our experienced team. As a community caster, you’ll provide consistent commentary at ES Arlington’s community events, bringing your own style and flavor to our broadcasts while helping us showcase local talent and competition. Experienced members of our community events team will give feedback to casters, allowing you to grow and improve throughout the program. 

Our program is also an opportunity for you to round out your casting skills in titles that you may not be as familiar with. Normally commentate at Rushdown, but always wanted to try casting Call of Duty? You’re welcome to try your hand at Reload!
