esports is more than just a game
Uplink Studios aims to marry the benefits of traditional sports with thrill and excitement of professional video gaming.
We have designed a custom program that will not only teach your children to be better players, but also how to be better human beings.
We will help them learn sportsmanship, leadership, respect, and teamwork while at the same time teaching them about all of the exciting careers available in the world of esports.
And we won’t just be staring at computers. We will be taking breaks and stretching and exercising as well. Because video gaming has to be healthy too.
Did you know that over 200 colleges and universities in the US now have an esports program? Schools from West Chester University and Immaculata all the way up to University of Kentucky, The Ohio State University and more have programs designed for esports and many are even building custom arenas!
In addition, over $50 million in scholarships are available for esports players. And 52.6% of high school esports athletes pursue a degree in science when they reach college.
And once they graduate, there are thousands of careers in esports. While most kids today won’t end up as professional esports players, there are so many other careers in esports including: game design and theory, event management & production, streaming production, graphic design, management and so many more.

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!
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.
