GC Testimonials

Sports: Basketball, Soccer, Beach Volleyball

When I started as a Games Coordinator in the ESSC, I did not know what to expect. In fact, I was a nervous wreck. Over time, I have grown to appreciate everything the league has to offer. I have embraced the fun-first attitude of the league. This has made me enjoy my time with the ESSC. I have built strong social bonds with the players. I can truly say that I have never viewed my time with ESSC as “work”. I have also become a regular player in the league This has also increased my involvement and engagement with the ESSC. I love the social aspect of GCing and I hope to be doing it in the future for a long time. Cheers!
