As a national body, our aims are to support esports and provide expertise and advice. We are focused on the grassroots level of esports and are not a governing body.
As the Cayman Esports Association is a not-for-profit organisation, all revenues generated go back into the running of the organisation, and into funding grassroots esports, including running our Esports Leagues, Esport Conventions, Competitions, and other initiatives (see below).
We are not pushing esports as a rival to traditional sport, but as a credible activity in its own right which can have positive cognitive and other esports benefits when done in moderation. Esports promotes teamwork and communication, develops communities and provides jobs.
We help to educate parents, teachers, media, policy makers and government around what esports is and its benefits. We’re working with schools, libraries and other educational establishments to embrace esports and create some inspiring events and activities.
