How do esports benefit my student athlete?


There are many similar benefits between traditional sports and esports:

  1. Community: Boys and girls that come together to compete in esports create a community of friends who enjoy gaming. Instead of going home to play video games in isolation, they’re playing with their peers. Children participating in esports are actively involved in an activity, making new friends, and having fun.
  2. Team Work: Children learn how to work together for a common goal. They learn how to strategize with each other.
  3. Competition: Healthy competition teaches children to bring their best effort and perform at a higher level. Competition teaches children how to play by the rules, and how to win and lose with grace. Best of all, competition is fun!
  4. Skills: Not only do children improve their gaming skills, they also improve physical skills including developing better hand eye coordination, enhanced memory, improved concentration, and attention to details. In addition, esports improves children’s social and multitasking skills.
