Here to register for Esports? Great, you’re in the right place.

Video games may not be a physical sport like soccer or baseball, but they still contain plenty of competition and intensity, so we call them Esports.

Think your child gets too much screen time at home? Have them come share that screen time with friends here at the YMCA. Our Esports space is open to the sweatiest of try-hards, and to those just looking for a casual gaming sesh. Expect to improve your skills, and have a great time.

Listed below are all of our Esport programs and their descriptions. Check them out and maybe you’ll find one for you!

Practices will consist of skills training, scrimmages, 1 on 1 coaching, team coaching, game review, team bonding, and much more. We will be forming teams among our players on week 1 with the goal to improve individually, and as a team. The games we will be focusing on this session are: Fortnite, Rocket League, and SuperSmash Bros.

All rewards/prizing (if earned) will be dispersed among the players of the winning team. All Esport league players will get free access to any Winter II Esport tournaments hosted at YMCA of Northern Rock County.
