What is Esports?
Esports, or competitive video gaming, has surged in popularity, with skilled players competing in events from local to international level. These events are often globally live-streamed.
At GeSS, we offer courses to cultivate skills in students passionate about esports, covering aspects like:
- The significance of dedication and a healthy lifestyle in professional gaming.
- Comprehensive insights into the profession, equipping students with skills applicable across various industries.
Despite skepticism, esports is a valid athletic pursuit, demanding strategic gameplay, rigorous training, and offering attractive opportunities in a professional gaming industry. Esports players’ dedication parallels traditional athletes.
With top players earning substantial prizes and tournaments drawing global viewers, esports, projected to generate over $1.6 billion in 2023, is an established, growing industry.
GeSS has adapted sports programs to include esports, emphasising:
- Physical and mental fitness, nutrition, sleep habits, endurance.
- Business skills such as marketing and management.
- Customised esports short courses for aspiring professional gamers.
Esports has received acknowledgment as a legitimate sport by several institutions, including the International Olympic Committee, and many universities offer esports scholarships. The skill, dedication, and competitive nature required justify esports as a legitimate sport, and we’re excited to offer students the opportunity to develop critical skills in this burgeoning industry.
