Homeschool eSports

Welcome to eSports! YMCA eSports takes video gaming to another level with our Alienware gaming systems and our state-of-the-art gaming center through organized competitive gameplay between teams and individuals.

We’ve mixed video gaming and eSports capabilities with learning curriculums rooted in STEM to engage, interact, and educate students in a fun way.

eSports at the Y helps your child….

When kids are active in eSports, their self-esteem grows as they learn how sharp their minds are and they develop the mental skills of the game and self-reliance.

Being a good sport shows respect for others and helps keep the game in perspective. Understanding sportsmanship fosters positive habits – in online and offline sports!

Kids learn the basics of online gaming and refine existing skills under the supervision of caring, skilled, and supportive coaches. Creativity and resilience are key in eSports!

Practicing any sport regularly helps kids learn the importance of discipline, organization, showing self-control, and staying focused. eSports takes dedication like any other sport.

eSports 101

A multi-player video game that is played competitively for spectators.

eSports is a great way to improve communication skills and increase group collaboration. Playing games in a competitive environment requires strategy from all players, and preparing counter strategies will help develop the thought process behind problem solving.

Participants will practice drills, then they will play scrimmage matches against each other. Matches will be reviewed by a coach, who will give them feedback and constructive criticism on their decision making and in game mechanics.

The YMCA provides Alienware computers, keyboards, mice, headsets, and monitors for use at the YMCA facility.

We host camps during the summer and winter, while we also collaborate with some of the local school districts to host an eSports league. Coming soon: enrichment program, private lessons, birthday parties, and more!

No. We ask that they use the accounts provided by the YMCA to ensure a safe and positive environment for all players.
