(Dallas, Texas - January 25, 2023) - Esports Coaches Guild and Esports Performance Academy announced today that the companies have entered into a strategic partnership that will permit coaches access to EPA’s Beginner Coaching Certification while being a member of the ECG.
The agreement furthers the industry-wide initiative to bolster the support and educational materials provided to individuals pursuing a career as an esports coach.
"I am incredibly excited to have EPA be our primary partner in our Coaching Foundation education program”, said Gabriel Zoltan-Johan, Founder of the Esports Coaches Guild. “After reviewing their work and pedigree, it was clear to me that they were both a partner that we can grow with, as well as one that shares our values as an entity that wants to work to better the world of esports coaching writ large. Their certification will be a stellar first step for any prospective coach that enters our collective ecosystem."
“Within the industry, there is a lot of focus put solely on the players. The focus on players is absolutely warranted”, said Andrew Cooley, CEO of Esports Performance Academy. “However, historically speaking, you rarely see any additional, quality resources to support coaches. It is an insanely demanding job to excel as an esports coach – more demanding than people often realize. To that end, we are excited to partner with Gabriel and the Esports Coaches Guild to be able to provide resources to qualify and support coaches in their own journey through esports. In turn, we hope that this will usher in a new era of esports that provides proper infrastructure and development methodology for both competitors and coaches.”
