Take Your Game to the Next Level

Expertly Tailored Training Programs

Our video game training programs are tailored specifically for each game that we offer. For example the learning experience on a sports game will be different from the experience on a creative game, as the games are completely different. We have a unique leveling up system which means we can accommodate students of all skill levels. 

New students are given a free evaluation to determine what level to start with in the game of their choice. Below is a list of games our expert coaches are ready to train. These games were selected based on their foundations needed to enter the competitive gaming world as your gamer grows into the sport of gaming.

They gain tons of real sports knowledge about the teams, players, and past champions in history. Currently there are huge payouts for tournaments in NBA 2K, FIFA, and MADDEN.
