NEOSHO, Mo. – E-Sports, or competitive gaming, continues to grow in popularity and has become a certified athletic program for several schools, including crowder college.
In order to get the next generation of E-Sports student athletes ready, Crowder hosted a day camp for kids. Current student athletes work one-on-one with kids ages seven to eleven on what it’s like competing in an e-sports tournament.
“Well I mean I’ve played games since I was a little kid,” said Student Athlete Tyler Clement. “It’s kinda like my hobby. I wasn’t that great at sports, so I just thought hey I’m good at video games so let’s try that, and it worked.”
Crowder College’s E-Sports program started in 2019 and has seen rapid growth every year.
