Youth esports and coaching platform Vanta has partnered with Ultimate Gaming Championship (UGC).
With Vanta as the official coaching partner of the UGC, the two organizations will work closely to provide coaching and development opportunities to organizations and gamers competing on UGC’s platform.
“We are thrilled to partner with the UGC and bring our coaching offerings to their growing community of gamers. UGC shares our passion for gaming and esports, and we look forward to helping them enhance the experience of their community through the power of coaching and development. We believe that this partnership will give us a great opportunity to continue building a sustainable esports and gaming market at the amateur level across the United States,” James Roche, co-founder of Vanta, said.
Vanta’s coaching program focuses on in-game skills as well as the development of real-world soft skills such as communication, social emotional learning, critical thinking, and problem solving. Their program will bring a holistic training program to members of the Ultimate Gaming Championship network.
“At UGC, our mission is to cultivate and develop the next generation of not only gamers but also professionals in all facets of the industry and Vanta shares in those beliefs. This partnership adds yet another layer to our digital ecosystem, helping to take our community of gamers to the next level,” Matt Jackson, CEO of UGC, said.
This partnership will give programs and gamers competing in UGC’s platform access to Vanta’s catalog of expert coaches in the top esports titles. Whether teams are interested in getting a coach for a season, a month, or even one session, all of these options will be available for teams competing on the UGC platform.
Additionally, Vanta and UGC will collaborate to offer esports development camps in the top esports titles. The first UGC Esports Camp powered by Vanta will take place in the coming months.
