Why esports?

Esports is the sport of playing video games. Students participating in organised esports experience similar benefits to any other sport! Esports involves team work, sportspersonship, communication and strategy.

Players who participate in esports programs are found to have a higher interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and develop valuable life skills such as…

  • Improved hand-eye coordination
  • Improved attention & visual acuity
  • Problem solving & strategy skill development
  • Boosts self-confidence and player socialisation

Esports promotes participation

As more students take an active interest in Video Gaming esports provides an structured activity centered around a hobby they love. Esports encourages participation in a social team environment where students can make new friends, develop their skills and experience the benefits of sport.

The AEL encourages all participants to incorporate physical exercise, nutrition and balanced study during their regime.
