At Uptime United, we believe that esports is more than just a game. Our holistic approach to healthy gaming is designed to help young gamers develop the skills and habits they need to excel in all aspects of life.

The world of esports is rapidly evolving, and Uptime United is at the forefront of this exciting movement. As more and more young people are drawn to gaming as a passion and a potential career, we believe that there is a need for a new approach to youth esports. We see esports not just as a game, but as an opportunity to empower young people with skills that will serve them well both on and off the screen.
Uptime United’s pathway to success is built around a holistic approach to healthy gaming. We recognize that esports can be an incredibly positive force in the lives of young people, but we also understand the potential risks associated with excessive screen time and a lack of physical activity. Our STEM and NFHS certified coaches work in collaboration with our university partner to develop a curriculum that emphasizes the importance of physical health, mental wellbeing, and personal growth.
Our core values of teamwork, respect, positivity, and game/life balance are at the heart of everything we do. We believe that esports can teach young people important life skills such as leadership, communication, critical thinking, and strategic planning. By focusing on these skills alongside gameplay strategies, we give our players a solid foundation for success both in esports and in life.
