Garden State Esports Partners With Conference One To Expand Esports Opportunities To New Jersey Students

Garden State Esports (GSE) and Conference One (CF1) have announced a partnership intended to establish a national pipeline for scholastic esports that will aid high school players who seek collegiate esports scholarships and students who aspire to work in the esports industry. The conduit will help bridge the gap between competitive youth esports, collegiate competitive esports, and professional esports.

Garden State Esports is a nonprofit founded by New Jersey teachers whose mission is to create high-quality, student-centered experiences through scholastic esports by providing the learning, competition, and community needed for all who use gaming as a platform to grow individually.

“Developing an infrastructure at the youth level in esports is vital for the overall growth of this sport on the national level,” Garden State Esports CEO and teacher Chris Aviles stated. “GSE remains dedicated to empowering our students to seek opportunities in esports and it was with utmost importance to find an organization that prioritized student’s values first. The relationship with CF1 will help establish the esports recruiting landscape for many years to come, while also boosting esports job development”

Other initiatives to come from the Conference One and Garden State Esports partnership will include high school recruiting events held at dedicated esports venues, an associated internship program, and in-depth coverage provided on SI.com, starting in the Spring of 2022.
