Andrew Cooley’s background includes over 15 years in all levels of esports, from playing professionally to coaching to management. He founded State of Mind Gaming and was President of GG Esports Academy prior to co-founding Esports Performance Academy. He has guided and fostered teams and players through various states of their careers, establishing a strong foundation of insights into the mindsets and motivations driving esports aces and aspirants. Given that, he believes that the environment around a player is just as intrinsically important as skills development – and can often be harder to come by. Mechanical and game knowledge will come from just playing the game, but team environment, communicative skills, and physical/psychological fitness all contribute to peak performance, and are not as naturally fostered.
Dominic King is a doctor in the Orthopedic Surgery Department, at the Cleveland Clinic Sports Health Center. He is excited to be a guest speaker at this camp.
"Our son William absolutely loved it and gained more confidence with his gaming during this week of camp. He really enjoyed spending time with people who had the same level of interest that he has for esports. It also opened his and our eyes to what is involved in playing and/or training for esports."
"I had a super time at the Esports Camp! Lovely to meet so many people IRL, and geek out with our next generation of leaders and changers in the space."
"The gaming was great because I had people to play with and I got to try new things. Our coach(Sidney) was nice and a good coach and got along with everyone and the overnight stay part was ok"
"Apparently his coach helped him with a mistake ritual. I am so thankful as this will help the screaming decrease. Ha! He improved high ground re-takes, game sense and side jumps and I have no idea what any of that means. So thank you!"
"I really improved on my team communication skills. This was my first real competitive experience, and I think it was a lot of fun, and very valuable. I really enjoyed working as a team, and cooperating with others to reach our goal."
"My takeaway from this camp was how health and other activities play a role into video games. I also loved learning from the Cavs coach and what his daily routine is like."
"I learned how to work with my overwatch team much better than I could have without camp."
"This was awesome everybody was very nice and they helped me understand the game better"
"Rambo was very knowledgeable about things you can do outside of the game like stretches and your mindset, not just in the game. My overall gameplay became better because of that."
