All members are part of our Game Gym Astrodon’s team. The team is broken up into two age groups, 10-13 and 14-18. ‘Don’s are not required to compete, but we do encourage all of our members to give competition a try.
13 and under
Our younger ‘Dons will be focused on learning the basics of the games. League of Legends and Super Smash Bros 4 are our two pillars,but ‘Dons are welcome to bounce around from game to game until they find the game that suits them. With our younger ‘Dons, we put an emphasis on learning the games, but also on how to balance life and gaming.
14 and up
Our older ‘Dons are focused on working on skills that will help them exceed at local and national tournaments. In addition to preparing for competition, our older ‘Dons are introduced to the ecosystem of esports and gaming so that they can explore their passions. The older ‘Dons are able to compete in any game of their choice. Regardless of the game, we can help you prepare to compete.

‘Dons train twice a week for an hour and a half. Each class is built around a goal or mastering a specific strategy or skill.
