About Us

The Academy of Esports focuses on the impact of esports in education. This podcast goes beyond the games to look more at the greater an impact a well-run and organized esports program can have on student health, mental wellness, social emotional learning, and connecting to collegiate and career pathways. This is a great podcast for students, educators and parents who are interested in starting their own teams in their schools, or are interested in taking their established teams to the next level.
