You sign up for the same reasons you sign up for any other program (soccer, basketball, baseball, gymnastics, chess club, taekwondo, wrestling and so on). You build up communication skills, teamwork, leadership skills, strategic skills, hand and eye coordination skills, community awareness, mental toughness and development. Perhaps the most valuable element and service Gaming Insomniacs provides, is our statistic tracking system. We keep track of game play and development stats for every player over time. We have “Players Card” which is continually updated that serves as a portfolio for each player.
What is the necessity behind this? There are hundreds of colleges and universities (like Robert Morris University, Harrisburg University, and SUNY Canton) that offers thousands of dollars’ worth in Esports scholarships every year. Gaming Insomniacs has partnered with such colleges and universities to create an environment where Esports Athletics can be scouted by these colleges.
What does this mean for you or your kid(s)? An opportunity to go to college/university on an Esports scholarship just like traditional sports/programs.
