About the Coaches
|Illinois Wesleyan University Esports coaches are responsible for the growth and development
of their roster. Each varsity title has its own dedicated coach. The coaches at Illinois
Wesleyan University approach coaching with an individual and team orientated mindset.
They look at how the best training can be individualized to increase growth and development
while still adhering to the overall objectives for the team.
Players will practice with their coach and team for 10-15 hours each week. Players
will analyze game footage with their coach and formulate a plan to improve various
aspects of their game. Our coaches focus on individual player mechanics, team mechanics,
strategy, and mentality. The teams will practice with and against their fellow students,
other universities, and the online communities within each game.
