a Competitive Team Gaming League for Youth

Getting Kids Out of Their Rooms and Into our Arena!

Welcome to little eLeague

little eLeague is a Competitive Team Gaming League for Youth ages 8-17 in the Jacksonville, Florida area. 


We hope to extend to other cities as we grow and expand in the future.  


The Basics....

  1. Gamers register in their age division to compete with and against their peers during a 12 week season.  
  2. Coaches work with teams of players in their area of town and schedule practices during the week and weekends.
  3. Competition Matches are played over several weekends during the season. Teams earn rankings and points based on their placement in weekly tournaments.
  4. A Season ending Championship for each division will decide winners with prizes and trophies awarded to the victors!


Isn't this Cool? Want to help us get it started?

Jacksonville Florida's Inaugural Youth eSports Season will be starting soon.

Let us Help You Prepare for High School and College Teams

High Schools and Colleges across the country already have or will have Varsity esports teams.  Kids can get a head start on learning how to play together as part of a team.  There are many college scholarships for gamers and many new carreer opportunities in esports and the video gaming industries.  Our future initiatives are to work with High Schools to help them start their esports clubs and to offer college scholarships to gamers for those who want to pursue a career in  esports.


If you are a school administrator or program director, we would love to talk to you about how we can help you start an eSports or team.  Please send us an email at info@littleEleage.com
