What Is Garden State Esports?

Mission

A nonprofit founded by educators, Garden State Esports is the organizing body of scholastic esports for New Jersey. Our mission is to create high-quality, student-centered experiences through scholastic esports so ALL students can use esports as a platform to grow socially, emotionally, and academically.

Vision

To ensure that ALL students possess the knowledge and skills needed to be society's game changers: educated, productive, and empathetic individuals.

Values

Learning. Community. Opportunity. Diversity.

Why Join Garden State Esports?

Free To Join. Free To Play. Always.

Our bottom line will always be to our students, not investors. All GSE competitions, resources, and events will always be free. During the 2021-2022 school year alone, our members saved over $475,000 in for-profit league dues by joining Garden State Esports!

Run By NJ Educators For NJ Schools And Students

GSE isn't our job, it's our passion. Everyone at GSE is a full-time NJ educator. Together we have 200+ years combined teaching experience. We know your schools, we know your kids, and we know how to help make esports meet the learning goals of your school district.

Play Against Local Teams Using A Familiar Schedule

Our 3:30 start time and three season schedule follows the traditional NJ athletic schedule that schools and students already know. We group teams into their traditional athletic conferences to make sure they play against schools they've heard of!

Earn Varsity Letters

195 colleges are offering more than $16 million in esports scholarships for talented players and support staff. Every college and university in NJ has an esports program. GSE will work with your district to develop criteria to make sure your esports team is varsity letter eligible and stakeholders understand all the post-secondary opportunities available to students.

Supported By The NJ DoE and School Boards Association

We are proud to have the support of the NJ Dept. of Education and the New Jersey School Boards Association. Check out our latest webinar with the NJBSA on why your district should join Garden State Esports on the resources page!
