E-SPORTS

What to expect from our E-Sports Program! 

SESSION 5 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

Build manual dexterity and create a
healthy relationship with gaming!

At the YMCA of the Foothills, we create a fun, safe, and unique environment for youth who like to play video games. In this program, kids will learn about proper gaming habits, teamwork, and physical fitness. We will play video games such as Smash Brothers Ultimate and Mario Kart. This class is a combination of video game skills, education, and physical activities. Kids will play games for about 1 hour and then go out and exercise.  

CLASSES TAKE PLACE IN OUR NEW E-SPORTS ROOM AT THE CRESCENTA-CAÑADA YMCA!

Meet Our New Instructor: 

Yung Chung
Interview excerpt —

“I spend a lot of time teaching my team culture and what should and shouldn’t be said. Just because the screen is there doesn’t mean you can behave a certain way. There is respectfulness when it comes to gaming.”  

 

Engaging in a healthy lifestyle is also encouraged, with exercise starting each session and stretching to end it. Chung also noted esports can be the gateway to participating in other youth sports for many kids.  

 

 “A lot of kids are interested in gaming which gets them into the Y and builds habits that keep their bodies healthy,” said Chung. “Especially with obesity rates being so high, it’s very important for children to learn about physical education. Gaming and esports are a great gateway toward trying other things.”
