Developing deeper connections in their relationships

Electronic games are changing society as a function of entertainment, social connection, and relief, improving the quality of life for millions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Experts recognize that some people play video games to such an extent that it can negatively interfere with their lives. At the same time, those experts agree that the ultimate goal may not be to stop gaming and rather keep an organized and supervised gaming schedule compatible with life responsibilities.

Esports offers students an opportunity to develop and hone skills commensurate with academic achievement and social success; components that are essential to a positive life experience. Esports are played online, from school, at a campus or from home. Regardless of location, the students are supervised by a coach and are immersed in a totally inclusive environment that promotes collaboration, communication and critical thinking.

In times of tremendous and rapid technological changes, we envision a meaningful and well-balanced lifestyle for our children, where they strive to develop deeper connections in their relationships.

— For Parents

Opportunity to meaningfully connect with peers

As parents we worry about how much time our children are spending online gaming, and alone in our homes. We want our children to decrease their screen time and engage in more personal and deeper relationships. Some children thrive in their on-line communities, and as parents we struggle to find the appropriate balance for their “real world” and their gaming community.

True North Esports provides a platform that allows our children to do what they love, yet in a structured environment. We provide an opportunity for our children to join a team and to learn from others, while making personal connections with their teammates and coaches.

Like all extra-curricular activities for our children, the fundamentals of play-life balance is an essential component and skill that we provide.

True North Esports facilitates the opportunity for our children to build an identity with their school and to meaningfully connect them with their peers.
