Esports

As with all YMCA leagues, YMCA eSports will encourage and promote healthy kids, families, and communities by placing a priority on involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image, and mutual respect for others.

YMCA Esports is the development of values through a progressive program stressing skill development, fun, physical fitness, and friendly competition.  All youth have an opportunity to play and families are encouraged to participate. Additional benefits include:

  • Improved hand-eye coordination
  • Improved attention & visual acuity
  • Improved basic visual processing and executive function.
  • Problem-solving & strategy skill development
  • 71% of parents report gaming having net positive effects for children.
  • Boosts self-confidence and player socialization.
  • 54% of gamers say gaming helps them connect with friends.

 

Esports will be broken up into 6 week sessions and each session will host a different game. The last week of each session, a tournament will be held. Practices will be held twice a week with one practice focused on competing.
