Kids in the Game (KING) is bringing esports to New York City Middle schools by creating an inclusive league for 16 schools across the city. Esports is a growing industry engaging over 226 million players worldwide. Your school will be part of KING’s Esports Middle School League that will feature weekly practices and school vs. school matches. KING is dedicated to providing an inclusive environment for kids to join their school’s esports team. Students will earn new skills and develop positive relationships in a fun and safe environment.

The kids will not only receive coaching in the esports games but then will transfer the skills in the video game onto the court and field. Each practice will have a physically active component that will get the kids moving and connect them to the video games in a new and unique way. Our intent is that students that may have never had the confidence to play traditional sports will have a new outlet to try it through this hybrid program model.
