GEORGIA SOCCER AND THE USA E-SPORTS ACADEMY ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP TO PROVIDE E-SPORTS COACHING PROGRAMS.
ATLANTA, GA - (May 2022) Georgia State Soccer Association (Georgia Soccer) and the United States Esports Academy (USEA) today announced a partnership agreement to support the development of esports gaming, specifically soccer gamers with educational programming.
“ USEA is immensely excited to partner with Georgia Soccer, our home State Soccer Association. We are strong believers in the symbiotic relationship between traditional and virtual sports and this partnership is a true first step to expanding those benefits. Esports athletes like traditional sports athletes require high-quality coaching programs to truly reach their maximum potential. USEA has a unique approach to esports coaching - combining factors of traditional LTAD coaching philosophies with modern STEM techniques. The United States Esports Academy will work closely with Georgia Soccer to provide virtual soccer and other esports opportunities and benefits to the Georgia Soccer community “said Johan van Breda, Founder of the United States Esports Academy.
“We are excited to have USEA as part of our Coaching Education platform. USEA are innovators and the first of its kind in the US supporting the rapidly growing field of esports participation. This partnership will add value to the development of soccer e-gamers through quality coaching programs.
As a State Association, we are looking forward, recognizing that increased esports participation among youth and adults is not in competition with the traditional game, but works along side it. Our job is to make sure we evolve and support this growing area by providing solutions to the esports soccer community in the State of Georgia as participation grows. The partnership with USEA does exactly that.” Laura Halfpenny, Executive Director at Georgia Soccer.
