Before participating in a TG camp, all coaches who make it through the rigorous application process go through Cloud9’s proprietary Coach Certification process. This multi-day program run by Cloud9 and its partners engages coaches on industry-leading topics:
- Best practices of elite esports coaches
- Training with The Positive Coaching Alliance to bring best practices of traditional sports coaches
- Physical and mental wellness
- Diversity, equity, and inclusion
It is our top priority to maintain a safe environment for campers and staff alike. All of our Training Grounds Coaches go through extensive background check processes, including criminal history, social media, and multi-panel drug screening.
As our coaches are a centerpiece of our program, we go to great lengths to make sure they’re qualified and prepped for the job.
