Esports At The YMCA
Esports is a video game competition for individuals and teams. Gamers in the Y's leagues and tournaments will enjoy game play in Rocket League, Madden, Smash, Fortnite, NBA2K, and FIFA.
As with all YMCA leagues, YMCA Esports will encourage and promote healthy kids, families, and communities by placing a priority on involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image, and mutual respect for others.
