Starting on 15th February and continuing for six weeks, The Brave Jnr will work with 12 young people (split into two teams) within the game Fortnite to help them understand the concept of esports, learn about how the industry works and give them the chance to improve their skills and discover their potential for competition. Both teams will follow a training schedule in preparation for the Orange vs Blue event where both teams will go head to head in a custom built arena within the game and a Champion will be crowned.
Below we have outlined some of the main points the program will focus on:
how to manage their own expectations and attitude,
how to keep safe and healthy while gaming,
how to work as a team and
what it takes to become a pro, with special guests from within the industry to offer exclusive advice and answer questions.
They will also, of course, have the chance to improve their Fortnite skills, level up their battle pass and compete with friends.The structure is much the same as it would be if the activity was football as opposed to Fortnite.
So, first of all you need to check that you meet the requirements here.
Then, check out the schedule to make sure it’s suitable here.
Next, it’s important that your child wants to take part so ask them before you sign up.
Once you have done all that, sign up here and someone will be in touch very soon.
What we're doing could change the future for young people in Scotland.
BOOTCAMP will introduce participants to esports and some of its main themes, we have highlighted a few below:
When taking part in esports, as in any competitive activity, it is important to understand how your attitude can affect your performance.
Having the right attitude is also a key factor in being picked up by professional organisations.
The virtual world can expose young people to certain dangers just like in the physical world and there are also new challenges that have arisen exclusively when interacting online.
