LEVEL UP YOUR GAME
New to the Twin Rivers YMCA, ESports (short for electronic sports) is a competitive sport through video gaming requiring the use of strategy, collaboration, communication, and problem-solving skills to achieve individual or team successes. The Twin Rivers YMCA ESports program is sponsored in part by the Bosch Community Foundation.
It's bigger than "just gaming." ESports allows youth to be engaged in a non-traditional sports program.
The Twin Rivers YMCA will be debuting our ESports league with a new Summer Camp offering, YMCA Summer ESports Summer Camp!
