ABOUT NXT UP ESPORTS
online video games are now safe, social, and still fun!
NXT UP Esports is the premier operator of recreational, virtual video game leagues and camp programs for kids!
Our programs are designed to build confidence, develop social skills, and help players get better at the games they love. We believe gaming can teach kids critical life skills through safe, social, and fun experiences.
Video games are not a waste of time!
Modeled after professional and collegiate leagues, our programs take the best practices used by high level players to teach young gamers how to be better players and better people. Collegiate level coaches work with players on an individual basis and through team exercises all managed through a safe and secure digital communication platform. Parents can feel safe knowing their child is playing with other kids their age instead of a random person online.
NXT UP Esports is an inclusive community of players and coaches. All programs are co-ed and open to players in a variety of skill levels.
Esports is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Not only is a career as a professional becoming more realistic for players, job opportunities within the esports and gaming industry continue to grow. The skills players learn through gaming can lead to a future in science, engineering, technology, and many other fields.
Further, the skills players learn through being on a team and learning to work together lead to enhanced communication skills, stronger personal relationships, and critical thinking skills.
NXT UP Esports creates a safe space for players to play with others their own age and skill level. Coaches are carefully selected, interviewed, and submit to background checks to ensure player and community safety. The coaches promote a culture of inclusion so all players feel comfortable and a part of the NXT UP Esports community.
