Vanta, a youth esports and coaching platform, enters a partnership with the Ultimate Gaming Championship (UGC), a nationwide esports league and tournament platform.
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.
“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,” commented James Roche, co-founder of Vanta.
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 the Ultimate Gaming Championship network members.
“This partnership adds yet another layer to our digital ecosystem, helping to take our community of gamers to the next level,” said Matt Jackson, CEO of UGC.
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.
Vanta and UGC will also 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.
