After an amazing Session 1, attended by young people from all over the country, Cloud9 is thrilled to announce that not only is registration now open for Fall Training Grounds, but we are also expanding the program! Fall Training Grounds will include two programs: League of Legends Tournament League (LOLTL) and League of Legends Community Camp (LOLCC). Both six-week programs will begin on September 29 and run through November 7. You can read more about both programs here.
Cloud9’s core belief is that esports can unlock the best in everyone, and our Training Grounds program is founded on this idea. Built upon our values of teamwork, excellence, and sportsmanship, Training Grounds is a program that looks to enable and empower the next generation of esports athletes by providing young people with the same suite of resources available to the professional organization. Through 1-on-1 coaching sessions and unique lesson plans, our in-depth curriculum provides a comprehensive understanding of all facets of the game. Coached by Cloud9 professionals and esports veterans, participants are also mentored on the habits and skills–like teamwork and communication–that are needed to find success and to be productive members of the esports community.
By creating a friendly, non-toxic community for participants to learn and play in, we look to equip the next generation of leaders with the tools necessary to create their own inclusive spaces for the next chapter of the esports industry. Thanks to the combined efforts of our players, staff, leadership, and partners, all of us at Cloud9 are proud to bring the community the Fall Training Grounds program.
