The National Esports Collegiate Conference (NECC) has secured a health and performance-focused partnership with esports technology company FITGMR.

The partnership will see NECC students gain access to FITGMR’s programme, which is designed to address the physical and mental demands of esports athletes. 

Founded in 2020, FITGMR is an esports technology, performance, and player development company that was created after working alongside North American esports organisation Cloud9. The FITGMR app includes the company’s programme, which features coach-led programming to help ensure that athletes receive specifically tailored support. This includes health and performance metrics, fitness tracking and leaderboards.

The partnership looks to continue bolstering the collegiate esports ecosystem in the United States, a scene that is continuing to grow every passing year. The NECC sponsors regular season and championship competitions across various esports titles. According to NECC, more than 300 colleges and universities compete in the conference.  

Earlier in September, esports company Playfly Esports partnered with BIG EAST Conference to create a new esports collegiate tournament structure. Shortly before, the esports programmes of the Big Ten Conference, the oldest Division I collegiate athletic conference in the US, created the Big Esports Conference, further highlighting collegiate esports’ growth.

Jacob VanRyn, NECC Commissioner, commented on the partnership: “We’re thrilled to partner with FitGMR as we continue to focus our attention on the health and well-being of our NECC community. I’m confident this partnership will help us provide the teams and players in the NECC with the tools they need for a healthy lifestyle. 

“The health and well-being of our community continues to be a point of emphasis for us and we’re looking forward to collaborating with FitGMR in both the short and long-term for a number of exciting initiatives.”
