  • ESports After School Elite | Ohio Youth Development | Columbus

    eSports After School Elite (EASE) Many parents recognize the impact that gaming has on their children's daily lives as young gamers engage in online video play using game consoles like Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch, or PC gaming. Children are able to master games like Minecraft, Roblox, Fortnite, Madden NFL, NBA2K, FIFA, and more. Preparing children to become more than novice video game players but training children in grades 3-8 gives children the opportunity to gain knowledge in coding, and competitive advancement. EASE is a new program created to give children who may not have access to online gaming or outside school-time STEAM activities through competitive gaming and coding gaming development. Vision We envision children who are normally excluded from competitive gaming, and video game development activities outside of school hours are afforded quality training, internet access to gaming equipment, peer competitions, and sponsorship. Contact us to Support EASE through sponsorship or learn more about how we need your support.
