Press Release - Pro GamerS: a computer gaming group for teens

I would like to introduce you to a group of 12-18 year old computer gamers who meet at the Taylors Hill Youth Centre. We go by the in-game tag Pro GamerS (with a capital S - PGS for short) and currently have thirteen members.

Every Friday, from 4pm until 6pm, we play the latest team-based computer games in a room full of high-end gaming rigs. Melton City Council's Youth Services provides the computers, games, snacks, toasted sandwiches, milkshakes, and other activities like a pool table, arts and crafts, board games, music and console games FOR FREE. We host quarterly in-house tournaments where active Pro GamerS members compete for a swag of awards and prizes. We also hope to attend a major computer gaming convention in 2014.

The young gamers have a lot of fun socialising with like-minded teens, and their parents are thrilled to see their otherwise reserved children out of their bedrooms and talking passionately about belonging to our community-based, open-to-all computer gaming group.

Every time we meet, I also address pertinent issues such as internet bullying, healthy eating, good posture, making school work a priority and complementing their gaming with regular breaks and daily exercise.

The Taylors Hill Youth and Community Centre is located at 121 Calder Park Drive, Taylors Hill. They can be contacted on 9747 5422. We have room for only a few more members, so bookings are essential.

Kind Regards,
Emanuel Cachia
