Esports

As with all YMCA sports leagues, YMCA Esports will promote youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility by prioritizing involvement and healthy competition rather than rivalry. They will also learn the value of participation over winning, team-building and individual development, a positive self-image, and mutual respect for others. Games often involve strategizing by working together on a team to complete a task, goal, or objective. Players will learn when they should take the lead and when to follow for the overall good of the group.
