Welcome To Our

Esports Arena


To Develop, Train and Encourage the Next Generation of Esports Athletes

Ages 8 - 18

Level Up Esports was founded to create an opportunity for Elementary and Middle School aged gamers to play each other in a competitive environment. Just like in traditional sports, the Level Up Esports teams play in-person at our Arena, in Clubs, Colleges, Middle and High school arenas and have weekly practices and weekend pro-style tournaments to showcase their talents. Players compete in team Esports for 10-week seasons – 8 weeks of matches and 2 weeks of playoffs. We have events throughout the year with our large events being played in-person or virtual with the Summer and Winter World Series.

Redefine Gaming For A New Generation

Friendly Environment

At Level Up Esports, we want our coaches and our players to lift our Esports athletes up and teach them how to have winning attitudes. Not only do we teach our players about how to protect themselves from cyber bullying, but we also provide a safe and fun space where they can be themselves. We do not tolerate bullying or teasing in any way

Make New Friends

Level Up Esports is about fun and meeting new friends. The players always arrive at our arena to have a great time! For every title of game we play, we divide up into teams. On these teams, different players have different responsibilities and must communicate with each other to reach a goal or an objective.

Pathway To Pro

The potential for scholastic Esports is booming! More that 252 Colleges and Universities are offering full or partial scholarships for Esports athletes. We work with our gamers starting at 8 years old and they progress until they have made the Pro Circuit or have made it into a college or University.

Why Level Up Esports?

Parents are often frustrated by the video games that their kids play.  We feel like if they used their time in a different way, they would set themselves up for more success.  Sometimes, as parents, we also wonder why our kids are on their electronics versus playing traditional sports like basketball, baseball, or soccer.  We started Level Up Esports because we saw a large group of kids that sat in their rooms all day playing games, talking to other gamers through their headsets but didn’t really know who they were talking to or didn’t understand that there is abuse online.  Some of the players we saw had social issues, were bullied, or had disabilities and didn’t really feel like they could fit in somewhere.  When we opened Level Up Esports, we welcomed those kids in.  We applied the life skills that you receive in traditional sports like sportsmanship, teamwork, winning and losing, respect and leadership to Esports and gaming.  Our crazy schedules at home make it difficult sometimes to teach life lessons that kids need to thrive and sometimes our kids won’t listen to us as parents.  They do however listen to their peers and the coaches that they look up to.

We don’t just teach gaming.  We teach values that gives them the building blocks to succeed in life. Teamwork, Respect, Character, Sportsmanship – these are just a few values that we weave into our lesson plans and will give your young gamer a head start in life.

Our coaches have played Esports at a competitive level for years and are qualified to help your player reach the next level of gaming that they are after or will have fun getting better at the game. The coaches have a curriculum that they teach.  Practices usually start with a warm up, learning a new skill or group of skills, aiming practice, scrimmages, etc.  We dive deep into team tactics, we learn how to communicate through our in-game chat and how to work together to accomplish a win.
