Dubuque Esports League is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that encourages competitive and recreational players to develop skills through hands-on, experiential learning. Esports is for all ages; it starts with programming focused on middle and high schoolers and young adults.
To provide opportunities for EVERYONE to use esports as a platform to develop STEM-based skills, grow in their social-emotional attributes and characteristics, discover career pathways, and enhance skills needed to thrive in work and life.
To create a safe, inclusive, and positive community for EVERYONE that chooses gaming as a platform to grow and be society’s next game-changers.
Today we both have teenage sons who found their community through playing video games. We recognized that our sons were learning leadership, technical and social skills through gaming, and we wanted to provide a healthy way to channel and grow these skills.
So we set out to smash the stigma around gaming and highlight all its benefits when put into a structured platform within an inclusive community. Esports is for all ages; it starts with programming focused on middle and high schoolers and young adults.
