Partner Spotlight: COPE
GGLeagues has joined forces with The Coalition of Parents in Esports (COPE) to help parents navigate the world of esports! COPE is a non-profit foundation created by parents of gamers for parents of gamers. COPE was founded by three parents of professional gamers - Shae WIlliams, Chris Spikoski, and Dave Herzog - who want to share their stories supporting and managing their children’s gaming experiences and ambitions.
GGLeagues and COPE look to “revolutionize esports by getting parents involved”, and hopes to help families learn from the experiences of professional gamers’ parents.
“It's great to be able to partner with the team at GG Leagues,” Says Chris Spikosk, CEO of COPE. “We've got the opportunity to reach many parents and kids around the country through joint content to highlight all of the great opportunities in education and career that could come from their love of gaming.Tournaments and local rec clubs like GGLeagues are where the passion and love of gaming start. Once we reach parents and kids, the pathway to careers within esports becomes much clearer and more fulfilling for everyone involved.”
