Cloud9's Path for Development Continues to Grow

Los Angeles, California - Dec. 2, 2020: Cloud9 Training Grounds, or C9TG, is an unforgettable educational experience for young adults, curated by the leaders of the esports industry. With more and more of our daily interactions coming through a digital medium, truer than ever in 2020, there is a growing need to convert these mediums into safe, productive, and educational spaces, especially for children and young adults. 

Gaming can serve many purposes. It can entertain, it can be a valuable method of social connection, and it can inspire. C9TG looks to channel all of those facets into a force for good while introducing a focus on mentorship, teamwork, and critical thinking. Centered on the core pillars of learning, passion, excellence, and trust, C9TG provides a holistic learning environment for all of the trainees, one where they can hone their skills as players and grow as individuals through real life-skills application. 

With Cloud9’s premier infrastructure providing the foundation for C9TG, trainees will have access to the same suite of resources that have led the organization to countless championships and to being named the most valuable esports company in the world. Trainees also receive coaching from esports veterans and access to the highest competitive gameplay experience, all within a safely moderated and education-driven community of young gamers.

By the end of C9TG, trainees will not only have received a glimpse at what is necessary to succeed in the esports industry, they will have also received the life skills necessary to help build successful professional and personal relationships in the future.

“Training Grounds is a groundbreaking initiative by Cloud9 that utilizes the passion we all share for games to teach valuable life lessons to young, developing gamers. Using the wealth of personal development knowledge we have at Cloud9 we have created a socially progressive, non-toxic space for youth players to learn leadership skills, practice being a good teammate, and become better individuals overall.” - Mae Gabbert, Director of Training Grounds
