NYSRPS and GGLeagues Partner to Bring Esports Leagues to New York
The New York State Recreation & Park Society has joined forces with GGLeagues, an online esports gaming company, to bring esports education and competition to the state of New York. GGLeagues and the NYSRPS will work together to connect the community of games across the state of New York and provide a wide range of esports activities for the residents of our members.
The partnership creates an easy and unified way for New York State Recreation & Park Society members to join the partnership and start their own esports programs. This not only allows them to create esports programming for their communities, but allows the whole state to bring that together in a cohesive statewide competition!
We look forward to educating the memberships on how they can get started or simply learn more at one of two introductory Zoom meetings on either March 2nd or March 23rd (registration links and information below).
For gamers, no matter if they are looking to improve their gameplay, meet other gamers, or compete in a state-wide New York Esports Championship, GGLeagues will be the place to go for New York gamers in 2022!
Through the GGLeagues platform, New York gamers - no matter what age - will be able to:
Connect with like-minded gamers in their age group and find new teammates in the games they love
Gain access to a database of educational resources related to esports ranging from practice tips to information on collegiate and professional esport pathways!
Compete for awesome prizes in state-wide competitions in some of the most popular Esports titles such as Fortnite, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros, and more!
Follow the action and check weekly statewide standings to see how the players from your community are doing! Playoff and championship matches also may be live streamed on the GGLeagues Twitch channel for families across the state to tune in to the action!
