Youth esports organization, Vanta Leagues, has announced a partnership with the Georgia Association of Private and Parochial Schools (GAPPS) to bring scholastic esports to high school and middle schools across the state of Georgia. GAPPS and Vanta Leagues will be working together to organize competitive esports leagues and competitions while providing accessible esports competition and development to all Georgia students.
“Not all students can participate in contact sports, but all students can participate in esports,” said Greg Dickens, President of the Georgia Association of Private and Parochial Schools. “At GAPPS, we are always exploring interscholastic options for our schools and their students. This unique platform proves to be a safe way to join the gaming community, all while building engagement and healthy competition. It is no surprise that this is a rapidly growing area of entertainment – one that many of our youth are already taking part in. So why not join in? Regardless if it is football, volleyball, or esports, our goal is to provide opportunities for our youth. Our belief is that Vanta League offers the programs and training GAPPS is looking for. GAPPS is proud to partner with Vanta League and is sincerely appreciative of the opportunities they offer our students.”
As part of the deal, Vanta Leagues will offer participation in its leagues as well as coaching for all GAPPS schools. Vanta will also host esports summer camps, on-demand coaching, and private coaching.
The GAPPS Fall esports league is set to begin on September 26, 2022.
