we are playlabs™

Born from LAN parties and raised on esports, playlabs™ was built to create an opportunity for gamers of all ages to improve their skills. We will help you focus on your gameplay, learn more effective communication, and realize the benefits of incorporating health and fitness strategies into your path to dominance.

Our approach is different from other esports communities. We focus in on some of the core aspects that make great gamers. Wellness is the foundation of everything – proper stretching, exercise, nutrition, and rest are needed to sustain top performance, both physically and mentally. Gameplay is paramount, you must hone your skills and techniques, but that only takes you so far. The secret to success is great Communication. Being able to communicate to your team, your fans, and your peers is what will take you to the next level. Combining these three elements, you have the formula to create a great player, teammate, and leader.

We all love online gaming but we know that training and competing at playlabs™ is the best way to get better. Bring your teammates or find new ones, there is no comparison to gaming in person. It’s about that personal interaction before and after a game, like staring your opponent down before you start, talking with your team and coach about the next round, and the fist bumps after that win. It’s intoxicating. Are you ready to get better? Jump over to train or compete to experience the possibilities of a positive environment that removes toxicity and fosters success. Let’s make Great Gamers together. We’ll see you at the lab!

Our goal is to provide the opportunity for all gamers of all ages to improve their skills. In addition to focusing on gameplay, communication and fitness training programs, we offer the ability to test your skills in leagues and tournaments. Our goal is to provide these functions to any gamer that wants to get better. Step in to one of our facilities or connect online and you’ll see that the playlabs™ community is a positive environment that encourages success and removes toxicity.

We call our improvement program playUP. A player comes to playlabs and gets evaluated, a playtest™, results are reviewed and a playpath™ to improvement is determined and presented to the player. Using this data, coaches and consultants work with the players to improve their skills. Frequent re-evaluation occurs to ensure positive progress. All players are tracked using a proprietary leaderboard system, called playrank™ that allows for both public display of progress and evaluation of players by coaches, recruiters, employers, and more.
