ABOUT SØRBY ESPORT

WHO IS SØRBY ESPORT?

INTRODUCTION

Sørby Esport is a Danish gaming and esport department under Sørbymagle Idrætsforening, (sports club) founded in 1907. Sørby Esport was founded in January 2016 and is permeated by the traditional association values: community, learning, development, and experiences.

VISION

We are a beacon in Danish esports, and we inspire our Nordic colleagues. We convey new knowledge, learning, new friendships and create fun events as well as a strong esports culture.

We are #morethanesports and we love making a difference for people.

CORE

Our innermost DNA consists of equal parts love of gaming and love of people. Since 2016, we have seen how our way of working with gaming and esports can transform people positively. Lonely children and young people become an important part of healthy, strong communities. Young people who are lost in life find desire and motivation for a job or education. Unemployed find their way to a job. People with disabilities and disabilities find joy, self-esteem, self-confidence, and togetherness. Quite ordinary children, young people, adults, and families – are linked closer together and get a togetherness they have not experienced before.

PLATFORM

Sørby Esport is a platform that stands on four solid legs:

  1. Knowledge – about the target group: “people who have a passion for gaming”
  2. Experience – designing and arranging successful gaming and esports education, events, training, and events
  3. Facilities – to create a good framework for unforgettable gaming and esports experiences and teaching
  4. People – to teach, train, run and hold gaming & esports activities

We are Sørby Esport. With gaming and esports as a framework, we make a noticeable difference for people.

In Sørby Esport we work in three areas

ONLINE

We make events that bring children, young people, and adults together for gaming, fun, presentations, stand-up, lectures, and teaching. In addition, our members and coaches coach, train and compete in our online universes.

EKSTERNAL

We love to go out and show how gaming and esports can help people. Among other things, we provide teaching in gaming and esports at several continuing schools and VUC centers. We make gaming and esports events for city parties and other cultural events. We participate in networks, make tournaments, events and arrangements externally, which bring people together and help children and young people into healthy communities.

ESPORTS CENTER

Locally in our center, we of course offer training, coaching, meetings, LAN events, boot camps, gatherings, social events and matches for our members, coaches, and team leaders. Our sports center is also a workplace for our employees, so there is always life and a good atmosphere in the center. In addition to our own activities, we use the center for teaching for the primary and lower secondary schools and HF centers that use us for their “electives in esports”. We hold teaching, training, activities, and gaming events for i.a. Autism Center West Zealand, Muskelsvindfonden, Social Psychiatry and Slagelse Municipality.
