Esports

Esports

Get the game started with our competitive Esports leagues for all levels with games such a Super Smash Bros, Rocket League, and NBA 2K21.

Esports is a competitive sport through a video game requiring the use of strategy, collaboration, communication, and problem-solving skills to achieve individual or team success. And it’s bigger than ‘just gaming’. Esports allows teens to be engaged in a non-traditional sports program.

 

Esports will be available for youth ages 9 – 17. Youth will compete against other YMCA Participants in a supervised setting.
