Why eSports?

Student Participation

Esports are co-ed, inclusive to anybody who can use a computer and engages students who might not otherwise participate in extracurricular activities.

Community

Video games are a passion for millions of students around the world.

Engaging with their passion through esports is a great way to reach students in a space they want to be, while rewarding positive behaviors and skill development. It encourages them to form social bonds and find community while pursuing something they care about.

STEM Engagement

            STEM-related skills are crucial to any esports athlete: deep engagement with computer technology, statistical analysis for scouting, and strategizing pre-match and mid-match.

Scholarships

            Currently, hundreds of colleges and universities offer tens of millions of dollars in esports scholarship money. That number grows substantially every year as more and more schools start up esports programs.
