PlayVS Game Changers

Game Changers don’t just make waves, they shift the tides. We want to make esports as inclusive as possible. Our first mission? Unlock opportunities for more women in the industry.

Want to make esports happen at your school? We can help.

Our Commitment

PlayVS Game Changers are a powerful group of female ambassadors working to empower more girls to get into gaming and learn about the various career opportunities available within the industry.

Our Promise

Esports is unlike traditional sports in that it is all-inclusive, and to that end, we want to ensure young women feel comfortable and welcome on our platform.

Zero Tolerance

PlayVS has a strict zero tolerance policy on toxic behavior. If players are interested in being crappy to one other or harassment of any sort, they’ll have to find another platform in which to do it.

Coached Environment

PlayVS leagues provide a structured, supervised environment for gamers of all skill-levels to compete and experience the benefits of esports. The presence of a coach provides structure, discipline, and a guiding hand to ensure a positive experience.

Mentorship

Having somebody you can look up to makes big dreams feel achievable. That’s why our Game Changers program seeks to provide mentorship for those who want to connect with an elder within the industry to share their wisdom and offer encouragement.
