What are E-Sports?

E-Sports are computer and console video games played in an organized and competitive environment. Our E-Sports program encourages team-oriented multiplayer play and solo player development. E-Sports are dynamic. They encourage players to problem solve, work together, communicate and have fun while accomplishing an end goal.

E-Sports are unique because physical ability, age and gender are not factors in player success.
