Tenstar and Welsh College have teamed up to offer a Valorant training programme
An academy head coach and three new esports athletes will be joining in.
Coleg Sir Gar, a multi-campus college in South Wales, has partnered with Tenstar, a UK esports organisation, to offer a training programme.
Advanced Valorant players will be able to participate in the Coleg Sir Gar Gamers (CSGG) academy programme, which is a joint effort between CSGG and the Tenstar Accelerated Professional Player (TAP3) initiative.
The goal of the programme is to develop the next generation of esports talent. It will allow gamers to compete and progress, as well as receive esports professional instruction, coaching, and analysis. According to this release on the Coleg Sir Gar website, this will involve performance psychology and emotional growth assistance.
The release further said, “We welcome gamers from any background to begin a journey with CSGG and Tenstar that will help to develop your esports performance, knowledge and skills.”
CSGG is trying to employ an academy head coach as well as three new athletes to join the academy's current roster of two Welsh Master players. Harrison James and Jacob Tomlinson, both college students, have previous esports experience, including participating in the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) and Epic LAN.
Tenstar is a relatively young esports organisation based in the United Kingdom that began operations in 2021. Following their victory in the Valorant UK & Ireland Skirmish last year, they first unveiled their TAP3 esports road to pro programme.
