Sports Psychology in Esports

It seems the realm of sports psychology has breached the world Esports, reports ESPN.  I feel this particular quote is quite powerful in regards to the future of Esports and how it is treated:

Green also believes Esports won't reach its full potential until the idea of playing video games is seen and used as a way to sharpen your mind instead of a tool for purely entertainment. If schools and other youth organizations see there are games which can help kids become quicker thinkers or possess better management skills, it will allow esports as a whole to be better accepted into society.

It is so true about the stigmatization of gaming and entertainment! How is Esports aiming to tackle this?

All the best, Leia

#1 More of the same it seems! the more exposure it gets as is not only will keep it from falling under the same umbrella as traditional sports, but in a way legitimise it as something unique as well!
