Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is this Esports Academy about?
The Esports Academy is an initiative of SCOGA dedicated to engaging, educating, and enabling youths to achieve excellence through the medium of esports.
We seek to build developmental pathways and provide opportunities for youths to become esports athletes, coaches, managers, professionals, and the leaders of tomorrow.
We also engage the diverse stakeholders within the esports ecosystem in defining and recognizing the essential standards that will allow the sustainable growth of the esports industry.
2. Why are gamers leading the workshops instead of coaches or professional athletes?
They are not always professional gamers, but they are facilitators or guides that are well-equipped to help students learn. As fellow gamers like yourself, there will be plenty of similar experiences. They are best equipped to understand the various difficulties you might have with learning the workshop content too!
3. Are workshops only for gamers?
Definitely not! We like to use gaming activities to promote active learning because it's a fun way to learn, so as long as you are open to playing games (and learning while doing it), it doesn't matter if you are a gamer or not.
4. What should I expect as a workshop participant?
Many of our workshops are designed to help you put into practice what you have learned. You will not be required to do any homework or preparation before the workshop. You are however expected to attend the workshop and participate actively in related activities. This will allow you to get the most of the experience.
Ask questions and make mistakes! That is how learning or leveling up happens!
