Linking gaming with subsequent physical activity
GAMING + SPORT = GSPORT
Every minute counts – sports preparation and regular physical strain are prerequisites for success not only for esportsmen.
The coronavirus pandemic has drastically reduced the physical fitness of children, pupils, students of primary, secondary or university schools.
On the contrary, the hunger for computer games, gaming and online environments has grown significantly.
We have set ourselves the goal of getting especially pupils, students who are not completely close to sport. Those who spend most of their free time playing video games.
We do not want to lure players away from gaming, but to open the door to the sports environment for them. With the help of tournaments, events, applications for children, which we have prepared under the auspices of Charles University FTVS, we want to motivate video game players to move so that they can measure themselves not only in the esports world, but also on sports grounds.
To show that physical activity is a natural part of us and we will try to develop a positive relationship to movement.
We believe that every minute counts. How about before or after each game (watching) of video games, put a little bit into your body? Exercise, go jogging, have quality stretching?
Czech esports player David Lacina, known as Kaparzo, wrote in 2020: "I think that the vast majority of top players I know are helped by movement to achieve better results in esports. After all, many of them were or are involved in both competition and sports."
Movement is extremely important for esports players to prevent various health problems.
We have described GSPORT to you, but do you actually know the term ESPORT?
According to a recent survey on www.esport.cz, the term esports can be described by 40% of the Czech population.
For the other 60% only in speed: esports is short for e-sports. It is an organized competition of individuals or teams, in any game, on any platform (PC, console, mobile). The competitions have clear rules and can be attended by both amateur and professional players.
