Esports continues to engage students at all levels in APS and has grown to include about 1,200 students in elementary, middle, and high schools. These are students who may not have had a chance to compete in traditional sports like football or basketball, but needed a way to connect with other students. Esports is a gender-neutral, inclusive activity that has many social emotional benefits, along with offering opportunities for growth, and the potential for college and career pathways. Please contact APS Esports for more information on how to get a club or team started at your school.                          esports@aps.edu
