"The multi-billion-dollar gaming industry offers career opportunities in software design, advertising, accounting, graphic design and so much more," said Alan Sitomer, a California Teacher of the Year Award winner and CEO of Mastery Coding. "That's why we've built an academic esports toolkit that channels students' passion for gaming into deep, meaningful, standards-based education. It's a win for the schools, a win for the teachers, and most significantly, a win for the kids."

Cathy Perry, California League of Schools Executive Director, said, "This school year, CLS is focused on helping schools engage students because connection and well-being are very important during COVID-19. Esports is a great way to do this by helping students to learn and grow together. We are excited to partner with Mastery Coding to bring this unique curriculum to California schools!"

Recommended for grades 7-12, Pathway Esports™ requires no prior esports experience to succeed.
