About CT Storm

CT Storm is a youth esports club. Think AAU or travel sports but for esports! The same way a volleyball or soccer club has multiple teams in multiple age groups, we offer esports teams for 3 different age groups: 7-11, 11-15, and 15-18. Our players compete in the latest games that are being recruited by colleges all across the country: Fortnite, Overwatch, Valorant, Apex, Rocket League, Halo, and League of Legends.

One of the biggest concerns from college and professional esports coaches is that most gamers entering college do not have experience playing as a team. Our players will learn the invaluable lessons of communication, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving. We are not only creating great gamers but also fostering these important life skills that will lead to being a more successful adult!


With over 250 colleges now offering scholarships for esports, it's time to harness your child's love of video games into something beneficial for life!

Minecraft Club

This is our Minecraft specific club, designed to help build STEM core concepts and socialization into a calm and inviting environment. Similar to the social clubs there are sessions after-school based on grade level, but there is also a midday homeschool program that you can sign up for if you are a homeschool group or student. Sessions are once a week but you can come during other sessions as long as there is availability.

NAEL transparent.png

The North American Esports League (NAEL) is the primary league for our newer athletes. Prioritized towards students ages 7-15, the NAEL offers two divisions of competition: Recruit and Elite.


Recruit- for new players to learn the ropes of the game they are competing in (recommended ages: 7-11)

Elite- for players that have some experience in their game, but are new to cooperative play (recommended ages: 11-15)

Coaches may recommend students switch teams during the first weeks, to ensure they receive the best experience possible!

UFEA transparent.png

The United Federation of Esports Athletes (UFEA) is the highest level of competition offered to our students. Targeted toward high school students, players interested in pursuing collegiate scholarships will work toward building a competitive esports resume.

Masters- for the strongest players interested in competing at the highest level available (recommended ages: 15-18)

Coaches will work with players and parents to help achieve the best growth possible! 

Esports Club

This is our social club in which any game can be played but a coach is still there to help out with technical stuff or to answer any questions you have. This is much more casual and designed for groups of friends or individuals looking to make friends who play games. There is a two hour a week session that is held based on grade level, i.e. elementary school, middle school, and high school clubs. Small activities will be held weekly to build camaraderie and forge friendships.
