Numerous popular esports titles will be featured, including Venture Valley, Singleton Foundation’s latest online business-building game, as part of the efforts around financial literacy and entrepreneurship. The Foundation’s collaboration with CSL Esports extends their offerings to scholastic curriculum. Other game titles include Rocket League, League of Legends, League of Legends - Wild Rift, NBA2k, Madden NFL 21, and FIFA 21.
“Education is a core component of CSL Esports,” said Rob Johnson, CEO, CSL Esports. “We engage young students to pique intellectual curiosity that could lead to opportunities in higher education, meaningful careers, and success in life.”
The camps and combines will use Gameplan, Learn2Esport’s esports management system and will be run by trained industry professionals and coaches. These will include seven one-week long online camps for middle school and high school-aged students and seven one-week long online summer combines for high school-aged students.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with CSL Esports to bring Gameplan to more schools in the US. Learn2Esport has been operating in Europe since 2016. The outreach from US schools has been tremendous. We look forward to providing fun, safe, and meaningful esports experiences this summer as a kick start to supporting additional middle schools, high schools, and colleges in the US for the 2021-22 school year,” said Rasmus Sandstrom, CEO and Co-Founder of Learn2Esport.
