Forget baseball or hoops, parents are now spending money to get their children coaching help for video games. Over three thousand people attended E3's Fortnite Pro-Am event, where the grand prize was three million dollars that would be divided among the winning team's charities of choice.

The website Gamer Sensi has hundreds of coaches, many of whom specialise in Fortnite, and charge between $10 and $25 an hour, to offer their services over the internet and help improve gameplay. "A typical session with me includes a self-analysis of one's own errors, an individual analysis of statistics and VoD review", he says on his profile. In another case, Nick Mennen, a software developer from Cedar Park, Texas, told WSJ that his 12-year-old son, Noble, struggled to win on the highly competitive Fortnite landscape.

'You can imagine what that was like for him at school'.

Fortnite has become such a social phenomenon for people of all ages that even young kids are needing to get their status up on the game, as well as, prompt parents to pay for the coaches.

However, if this is something parents are interested in, Fortnite tutors are said to be typically found on social media or contracting sites, with one site claiming it has hired over 1,400 Fortnite coaches since March.

Interestingly, the new trend has also surprised Fortnite coaches. Other parents are taking lessons themselves so they can bond with their children and keep up with their hobbies. That parent, in particular, has already purchased four hours worth of lessons for her 10-year-old son.
