About Player 1

Player 1's Video Gaming, Mentoring, Educational, eSports and Community Initiative fuses each child's favorite video games, student, parent, and community mentoring, real-world educational training, and the most popular sport in the world, soccer, to create an active and passive learning environment that not only exceedingly enhances a child's social and emotional development, but also heightens their critical thinking, communication, and decision-making skills.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a nurturing and inspiring environment that fosters the physical, emotional, and social development of our youth. By promoting communication and psychological growth, we aspire to ignite a passion for learning, cultivate positive community engagement, and empower them to make a lasting impact on the world.



Summer experience ! 

This experience is designed in a way that helps to rid our students of past negative behavior and teaches them how to focus, deal with anger and adversity and work as a team. During our eXtreme Summer eXperience, students also get a chance to engage one-on-one or as a group with local law enforcement officials, educators, community leaders, and local business owners. Students will be met with a standard of support, encouragement, and engagement that many are not accustomed to. During this three-week experience, students will participate in group mentoring and mental and emotional challenges and learn essential life skills while having the best time of their lives!


Macy's store managers and Macy's District Managers throughout New York State and Connecticut came down to volunteer at the Player 1 Academy. We are excited about this new partnership and our future collaborations.
