A youth esports league and education franchise for children is opening a joint discovery center and esports facility in Westbury.
XP League is teaming up with Snapology, an education franchise centered on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) at the 5,218-square-foot space at the Samanea New York mall. The facility will debut on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25.
XP League and Snapology are part of the franchise portfolio of Unleashed Brands, the parent company of Premier Martial Arts, Class 101, The Little Gym and Urban Air Adventure Parks.
The combined Discovery Center and esports league features activities from both XP League and Snapology, serving as a one-stop-shop experience for children, according to a company statement. The space features three classrooms, one for Snapology, another for XP League and a third dedicated to birthday parties.
Snapology’s Discovery Center classroom engages children through STEAM activities such as coding, robotics and animation as well as creative play stations involving Lego bricks, Minecraft, Virtual Reality and more. Its core teaching methods are aimed at allowing children’s cognitive skills, social and emotional learning and sportsmanship to grow in a safe environment, while boosting self-confidence, according to the statement.
XP League, on the opposite side of the center, will offer a line-up of coach-led esports games, such as Fortnite, Valorant, Rocket League, Overwatch, League of Legends, Apex Legends, and more.
Both brands are currently offering Founding Member specials at a $25 discount, which includes one class or two gaming sessions per week, creative and open play, discounts on birthday parties and camps and more.
“We are excited to bring this Discovery Center concept and esports league together into one facility that is unlike anything we’ve ever created,” Paul Bodycomb and Nancy Seltzer, XP League and Snapology franchisees, said in the statement. “The new Samanea Mall in Westbury is quickly becoming a mecca for family fun and activities in the area so we’re excited to introduce Snapology and XP League to the community and bring a truly unique experience to families with children of all ages and interests, helping them learn, play and grow.”
Matthew Kucker, Jordan Baruch and Herb Agin of Colliers represented the tenant, as well as the landlord, and Samanea New York’s Leasing and Development Officer Dominic Collucio also represented ownership in the lease transaction.
