In an effort to offer engaging opportunities to our more digitally inclined youth participants, Esports takes on the form of organized, multiplayer online video game competitions and is one of the fastest growing trends.

In this program, youth are welcome to be who they are, excel at what they love, and develop the social, strategic and problem-solving skills necessary to grow into thriving adults in a safe, moderated and inclusive environment. As with our traditional sports programs, Esports reinforces the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, ensuring that participants receive a well-rounded and enriching experience.
