League of Legends Pros to Coach in Fan Boot Camp in September 2017
LOS ANGELES, June 27, 2017 - Sandbox Esports and Sports Academy announced the creation of the Sandbox Esports League of Legends Fantasy Camp, a world class training experience for League of Legends fans to learn from and play with superstar professional players. Counselors at the Fantasy Camp will include Eugene “Pobelter” Park (Immortals), Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black (CLG), Darshan “Darshan” Upadhyaha (CLG), Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett (CLG), Trevor “Stixxay” Hayes (CLG), Choi “Huhi” Jae-hyun (CLG), Adrian “Adrian” Ma (most recently with Team Liquid), Choi “Locodoco” Yoon-sub (coach of Gold Coin United), and Alberto “Crumbzz” Rengifo.
This camp will be held at Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California, the only fully integrated, multi-disciplinary athletic training and integrated sports medicine facility on the west coast. Leading up to the NA LCS Summer Split, CLG conducted two-week boot camp training at the same facility helping them jump to an early lead in the NA LCS Summer Split standings.
Campers will learn the finer points of League of Legends gameplay and strategy over the course of a three-day training program (from September 15-17), operating within a bootcamp environment modeled after professional practices. The daily schedule will include scrim blocks, VOD reviews, breakout strategy sessions, hand-eye coordination and reaction training, physical performance training, and sports psychology sessions. In addition to coaching, counselors will play with and against campers in one-on-one competitions and solo queue.
Campers must be at least 13-years-old, and will be selected via an open application process, which can be found here. Capacity will be limited to 30 campers in order to ensure an intimate and exclusive experience. The minimum bid that will be accepted is $3000. The application deadline is Sunday, July 23.
