Millions of people watching competitors battle it out in arenas and sold out stadiums. Millions of dollars are on the line and it could be anyone’s game.
The scene we described could be for a professional basketball or tennis match. However, it isn’t. Instead, we’re describing esports; a modern day form of sports in which competitors train and form teams, all in the hopes of winning cash prizes that can exceed the millions of dollars.
Esports is one of the last decades biggest trends but there is more to it than just playing games. Esports can be a positive influence in the lives of our children and just like regular sports, can provide them with mental, emotional and physical benefits that they’ll take with them long into adulthood. This website aims to answer any questions you might have about esports and the benefits it can have for New Zealand school kids.
