Esports In Action!

What is the Esports Program?

The YMCA Esports program serves today’s youth (8-14 years old) by providing opportunities for ALL students to use Esports as a platform to acquire critical communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills needed to thrive in work and in life.

How Can Esports Benefit My Child?

Our curriculum supports students with a wide variety of roles, expands their skills, and helps them to gain real-life experience for future career aspirations within esports, or outside of it. The class is a great chance for your child to connect with like-minded kids, with similar interests, while still following their passion, and staying on a steady path towards growth. Participants will learn strong character values in an educational environment supported by the esports ecosystem pictured below.

The Esports ecosystem serves as a framework to better understand the workforce opportunities within Esports. This means that when we talk about engaging all students, we really mean ALL students. Rather than focusing on the 5-6 players on an Esports team, we are looking to introduce students to the wide variety of roles, expand their skills, and gain real experience in future potential career aspirations.
