Starting 25th of April, FUZED will offer organized esports training sessions in Fortnite for children and youth people, focusing on physical activity and health. The combination of gaming and physical activity is something that has been missing in esports. Today, almost every professional esports team focuses on healthy living, with massive performance staff working with the athletes.
By bringing the professional esports team’s structure to the grassroots level, offering real training sessions, FUZED is one step closer to its goal — to create the world’s best community for sustainable gaming. Head of Education Oskar Hemby, the author behind The Perfect Gamer, will lead the sessions.
“It feels great that FUZED can offer organized esports training, just as other sports associations offer training sessions in traditional sport.”
Oskar Hemby has a strong resume in esports. Besides his Head of Health & Education title at FUZED, he is the Health & Performance coach for Swedish organization GODSENT, currently fielding a world top 50 ranked CS:GO team with some of Sweden’s best players over the past years. He’s also the author of The Perfect Gamer, a book about sustainable gaming.
“It’s important that children at an early age learn that performance is heavily dependent on healthy food, enough sleep and regular physical activity. Just look at the very best teams in esports today.”
Tuesdays and Thursdays, children in age groups 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13+ are able to participate in training sessions combining esports and physical activity, while Oskar Hemby will teach about food, sleep and health. Fortnite is the first title included, but other games will be featured in the future.
FUZED will also invite and educate traditional sports associations. The goal is to make them ready to host their own esports training sessions in the gaming center.
“We are working together with Swedish municipalities to create better preconditions for sports associations who want to offer modern and engaging alternatives for children and youth people interested in gaming. Helping the sports grassroots navigate the gaming and esports world is one of our core values,” said Karl Sergel, CEO and co-founder of FUZED. "We are already in dialogue with several clubs that want to enter esports and expand their offering to attract future generations. This is only the start and we’re excited for the future.”
FUZED Summer Games is our biggest project ever. With a 250 000 SEK prize pool and tournaments in CS:GO and football, every Saturday from June 24 until August 19, we want to invite you to the biggest event this summer.
