Highly recommend Uplink Studios! We love that it offers an opportunity for our children to socialize and have fun with their peers while gaming. The staff is fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about gaming and online safety which is very reassuring for us.

Very tech knowledgeable, great with kids. The equipment is top of the line, the camps encourage team work. A great place for kids to learn eSports.

Karen P – parent

My sons are having a great experience at Uplink. My 13 year old competes in Rocket League and my 11 year old is enjoying summer camps. The facility itself is great. I appreciate that sportsmanship and teamwork is heavily promoted.

Our Vision

Playing video games in the bedroom can lead to unwanted behavior and it’s anti-social.  Kids often rage quit and slam equipment, they are disrespectful to their friends online and this bad behavior leads to aggression and negative behavior traits.  Our goal is to teach kids to be better teammates, to respect each other and to help each other get better.  We want to make better human beings, not just better gamers.

Our esports Arena

In addition to having state-of-the-art gaming PCs,  we have created a mini arena that mirrors the big esports arenas that the pros play in.  This lets the players experience what its like to play in the “big leagues” AND offers an opportunity for parents to connect with their children.  We want parents to come watch their children on game day just like they would on the soccer field.  You’ll be amazed at how exciting it is!
