INTRODUCTION & MISSION

Introducing The University of Oklahoma Esports & Co-Curricular Innovation, or OU ECCI, Summer Camps portal! One of our missions has always been to advocate for esports topics across all of our developments and energies. Whether it is journalism opportunities in broadcast, community planning logistics, academic opportunity awareness, or competitive energy we want to not only tell the world but also allow those interested to come along for the ride.

Our goal is to create comprehensive camp programming catering to different audiences targeting K-12 demographics as our contribution to the growing topic. Our coaches and mentors are pulled straight from our active developments that execute regularly throughout the school year. They are comprised of vetted upperclassmen, alumni, and employees of OU ECCI.

We want to focus on substance in 2022 versus profitability and are keeping the entry costs low for high caliber camps as a means of potential recruitment to OU, to facilitate impactful opportunities to the potential next generation of Sooners, and create another value addition in the consideration of attending the University of Oklahoma. All camps are capped at $120 or less. All camps are designed for ages 13 and up. All camps are VIRTUAL ONLY for one last year. All fees go exclusively to the coaches facilitating camps. 

WHAT IS ESPORTS?

Esports is the world of competitive, organized video gaming. Competitors from different leagues, teams, and countries face off in games that test their skills against their opponent’s skills. Titles like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Overwatch have established leagues in which esports teams based in cities pay salary to players to play at a very high level. Esports is more than playing a video game in your bedroom, and this camp is an introduction to what it means to be a teammate, a competitor, and a playmaker in esports.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ESPORTS AND GAMING?

The best way to describe this is to say that online gaming is like playing a pick up game at the local gym while Esports is like going to daily practice, on a team that plays in a league that feeds it’s best players into a greater league after performing well in scheduled matches.

These camps are designed to develop competitive players exclusively. They are not for leisure or casual gamers and are intended to produce stronger skill sets in game. 

WHY OU ESPORTS CAMPS?

The University of Oklahoma has actively been developing esports infrastructure internally and abroad since Fall 2016. In that time we have developed a diverse program with heavy emphasis on path to industry showcasing the entire industry of opportunity and not just “playing video games”. This has also helped us mentor and build leadership through our students who understand our intent. All camps are facilitated by the very coaches and captains that lead the official OU teams.

GLOBAL PREREQUISITES

  • Must have a solid internet connection and a working PC/Console (Depending on title)
  • Must have Discord
  • Must have a microphone

  • Multiple coaches to ensure active mentorship for all attendees

OU CAMPS GENERAL FAQ

What titles will you be developing for?

We are only interested in providing programming we have execution and expertise in. The titles we develop curriculum for are programs that have over a year of execution throughout the school year and their coaching staff is vetted to be professional, articulate, and respectful.

Who is eligible to attend?

Ages 13 and up ONLY! Each camp has unique prerequisites. From the platform (PC, console) to preexistent skill ability to playstyle we want as many campers to be involved as possible. These prerequisites will be defined in each individual camp listing.

In the context of gender-focused programming, when we are capable of facilitating physical programming on our campus we will explore this not because we believe in limiting participation, but because we believe in elevating demographics that need more attention statistically and historically.

""M" for Mature" programming?

It is no mystery everyone’s sensitivities to potentially violent video games differ, however, we look at it as an opportunity to provide mentorship about technique, emotional control, and sportsmanship because they are playing them already. This is how we can contribute to positive community influence versus just turning our back to them. Games that are rated “M” are treated the same as those that are not from the curriculum development standpoint. These camps are not designed for day 1 beginners, but are for those that have put at least a little time into the game/topic already and desire coaching. Parents are involved in the registration process and are made aware of what they are subscribing to.

How can I learn more about the University of Oklahoma overall?

Naturally, we are students, staff, faculty, and alumni of The University of Oklahoma. We are proud advocates of our university. As we continue to elevate the esports topic, we are just one opportunity that exists at OU. It all starts with visiting www.ou.edu, but it doesn’t stop there. We are plugged in with our admissions and recruitment energies at the university level and promote conversation with them directly. We will gladly give you a very warm introduction to our personnel that can answer OU specific questions outside of the esports opportunities.

What about university recruitment, scholarships, academic opportunities?

We know you’re interested in representing the University of Oklahoma formally in a licensed jersey, on a scholarship, and studying what you love. We’ve been working on all the above since 2016! Since Fall 2021 WE NOW HAVE THEM ALL! That aside there are tons of degrees that correlate to esports career fields. Journalism, engineering, business to name a few. You can get scholarships through academic excellence also.

REAL TALK: Esports in the educational sector is still very young in both K-12 and Higher Ed. There are many opportunities already popping up across the U.S. We are firm believers that we collectively owe it to our future generations to provide them with information and guidance to make a well-educated decision. Anybody entering and exiting educational journeys in the industry of esports is a win for everyone REGARDLESS of the brand and location.

Apex Legends (PC) (BRONZE II - GOLD II) - June 6-10

ABOUT THE APEX LEGENDS DEVELOPMENT

The University of Oklahoma has been developing Apex Legends since the beginning of the Fall 2021 school year and immediately resulted in the growth from one to two teams. As an extremely fast paced sci-fi battle royale it has become one of the most compelling and entertaining showcases to watch in a combination of broader map awareness, hand eye coordination, and a title we like to think has the best heritage based representation in the entire industry.

ABOUT THE OU APEX LEAD

OU Apex Legends Captain Chris “Destiny” Morris – 1st year of camps – Classics Class of ’23

Hi all! I’m Chris! I started playing video games in my early childhood. I enjoy RPGs, strategy games, story-based games, and shooters. I’ve played FPS games since roughly 2014, starting with Team Fortress 2. I’ve had Collegiate esports experience through both Overwatch and Apex Legends for a combined 3 years – 2 years of Overwatch and 1 year of Apex. I have consistently placed Diamond in Apex since season 11, and was consistent Platinum every season before then since I started playing. I’ve had experience with coaching esports for 2 years now, both for OU’s collegiate teams and for previous OU summer camps.

WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THIS CAMP?

The focus of this camp is a mixture of both how to improve to at least the “average” rank (Gold 4) – if not higher – in Apex Legends, but also give a taste into coordinated teamplay and inspire a continuation of competitive play with newfound teammates.

Madden 22 (ALL PLATFORMS) - June 6-10

ABOUT THE MADDEN DEVELOPMENT

The University of Oklahoma has been developing Madden since Spring 2021. While Madden traditionally has not represented an “esports” title in the earlier years it has absolutely grown in popularity with the rise of esports collectively. Naturally, we are OU. WE DO FOOTBALL! As we wait for “College Football” to get released in the upcoming years we have put energy into developing Madden energy as a part of our collective effort.

ABOUT THE OU MADDEN LEAD

OU Madden Coach Jonathan “JTran” Tran – 1st year of camps – Electrical Engineering Class of ’23

My name is Johnathan Tran, I am the current coach and captain for Madden esports at The University of Oklahoma. I have competed at both the collegiate and professional level. I was the runner up of the Cleveland Browns Club Championship in both 2018 and 2019. I finished in the top 16 of the inaugural Level Next collegiate Madden tournament. I have a great love for the game of Madden which started at a young age and my first game in Madden 2005.

WHY THIS CAMP?

In the scene, Madden and other sports titles are smaller in comparison but it is also unique compared to other titles. Madden especially is a one person game, meaning the player can participate without needing any teammates in order to compete at a high level. Through my years of experience in competing I am able to view the game in a way that most causal players are not. I do have experience in coaching and teaching this game at a high level as well. Any camper that decides to participate will advance their game and knowledge, whether they are just starting and casually playing or have competed before at the high school level. That is the Coach Tran guarantee.

EXPECTATIONS OF THIS CAMP

At the end of this camp, participants will be able to read coverages on offense. They will learn basic and advanced route combos that can be applied to any formation that will help them win on offense. They will also learn how to correctly view the game from a running standpoint. Campers will also be taught skills on the defensive side of the ball as well. They will learn how to mask their coverages, to create a uniform look that will make it difficult for their opponent to read their coverages. Participants can expect to learn the basics of the game and not just “cheese plays”. Learning the basics of the game will allow them to succeed in every Madden.

Call of Duty: VANGUARD (PC/PS/XB) - June 13-17

ABOUT THE OU CALL OF DUTY DEVELOPMENT

The University of Oklahoma has been developing Call of Duty energy since Spring 2020. As one of the more controversial titles in esports and gaming in the scholastic world we struggled early on to wrangle the culture surrounding this iconic 20+ year title into something that aligned with our culture, goals, and intent with how we want to represent OU. That being said every development we formally have will eventually become scholarship enabled and actively recruited. We are on our way and are confident now to start showcasing our energy in the venerable series of Call of Duty.

ABOUT THE OU COD COACH

OU Call of Duty Head Coach Logan “Pralimos” Goin – 1st year of camps – Finance Class of ’23

After playing on OU’s competitive CoD roster for a year, I found my love for teaching other players and became the team’s trainer. My success in this role has led me to the Head Coach position that I hold today. In my time as Head Coach, I have had the pleasure of coaching many new talents, assisting future recruits, and coaching the 7th best high school CoD team in the nation.

ABOUT THE OU ROCKET LEAGUE DEVELOPMENT

The University of Oklahoma has been developing Rocket League energy since the start of our formalized organization in 2017. It is a cornerstone program development and is one of the first scholarship and recruited for titles ever for OU since Fall 2021. Rocket League as a title is one of the most important and critical programs to establishing healthy scholastic pipelines for recruiting but serves as one of the best games to help ease parents and administrations into the topic of esports in general.

League of Legends (PC) (Beginner from Bronze - Gold) - June 24-26

ABOUT THE OU LEAGUE OF LEGENDS DEVELOPMENT

The University of Oklahoma has been developing League of Legends energy since the start of our formalized organization in 2017. It is a cornerstone program development and is one of the first scholarship and recruited for titles ever for OU since Fall 2021. League of Legends as a title is one of the most important and critical esports in the world with tenure in industry, a massive production effort, and the very esport that has redefined what this topic can do when maximized. This includes viewership that produces more eyes than the Super Bowl during it’s global finals called “Worlds”.

ABOUT THE OU LOL LEAD

OU League of Legends Head Coach Joseph “Ender” Savala – 1st year of camps – OU 2019 Alum (Social Work)

Hello! I am Joseph Savala, I am an alumni of the University of Oklahoma, with a bachelor in social work! I have also been a League of Legends Coach for six years now, a player since Season 3, and I am a D1 peaked player. My main role is support with a jungle secondary. Now! With this camp, I am going to be informing you of years of trial and error, in order for you to learn from my mistakes. This involves things in game such as laning, a champion pool, and reviewing your own games.

WHY ARE THERE TWO LOL CAMPS?

Every competitive title has a ranking structure of some sort. This can show where the bulk of players talent bases are. The highest percentage of LoL players are in the bronze to gold ranks. It is important to be sensitive to this because a bronze player against someone who is 2-3 ranks higher will not have a great experience in their growth process. Just like with most things in esports skill development is part training, mental focus, and fostering good strategy.

Overwatch (PC) (Under 3000 SR) - July 11-15

ABOUT OU OVERWATCH DEVELOPMENT

The Overwatch Esports program at The University of Oklahoma is a team of committed individuals that have played at extremely high levels in competitive Overwatch for years. Their Head Coach has been coaching Overwatch specifically for 5 years, has been a coach in esports for the most of the last decade, and is an education student at OU that knows how to teach. Our goal at OU is for every player to leave our camp with a better understanding of the game and what it means to be in esports!

OU OW SPECIFIC CAMP EXPECTATIONS

OU Overwatch Head Coach Joshua “Thumper” Riesenberg – 3rd year of camps – Journalism Class of ’24 (Masters)

This camp is designed for players that are looking to improve their own gameplay as well as their ability to perform within a team. Due to this, there are expectations for both the players and the coaches during this camp. 

As this camp is an esports camp, and NOT a Video Game/Online Gaming camp, the expectation is to work and apply yourself daily. No matter the division, every player will come to camp ready to grasp new concepts, receive individual and group coaching, and perform at a level consistent with their rank. 

The expectation for every player should be to improve during this camp. However, simply showing up for the allotted 6 hours and then going back to bad habits will not sustain any improvement you made. This is why part of this camp will be dedicated to how to practice and how to improve, not just what to improve on. 

It should also be said that this camp is going to teach players how to function in a team, as Overwatch is a team esport. Every player is going to learn what leadership, teamwork, responsibility, communication, and self-reflection is during this camp. These skills are essential to improving your gameplay but are applicable to everyday life as well. Just as any sports team relies on these skills, so does esports!

CAMP SCHEDULE

At this stage in a player’s development they understand the absolute basics about the game but make fundamental errors or mistakes in your decision making and mechanics. This beginning camp will be geared to correcting these mistakes so that the player has more of an opportunity to improve. To achieve this the following curriculum and schedule will be used:

MONDAY TUESDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDAY

Halo Infinite (PC/XB) - July 18-22

ABOUT THE HALO DEVELOPMENT

The University of Oklahoma started developing hot on the heels of the Winter 2021 release of Halo Infinite. Since then we expanded the single launch team to two and concluded the inaugural collegiate season ranked in the top 16 across the nation. Halo is responsible for so much esports history in the world of first person shooters with tons of pop culture references, amazing memories, and iconic imagery. With the launch of the new Xbox and a free to play model for multiplayer Halo is shaping up to return to more of it’s legacy as a cornerstone title in competitive play.

ABOUT THE HALO LEAD

OU Halo Coach Jackson “Ajax” Boyd – 1st year of camps – Construction Science Class of ’24

Ajax has been involved with Esports since the beginning of his college career. When he first started OU, he began as a player for the call of duty team before moving as the captain and coach of Warzone. He started the Halo team this year with the launch of Halo infinite and coached 8 players through the year. In addition, he is involved with the OU stream team and community pillar in addition to coach for the Halo team.

WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THIS CAMP?

The focus of this camp is to instill good foundational knowledge in Halo from good practices in warmups to map familiarization for call outs, map positioning, and awareness of weapon spawn locations. The goal is to help campers understand how to be a member of a team with a good understanding of what communication needs to happen.

HISTORY & 2022 OU ESPORTS CAMPS LEADERSHIP

Our camp coaches and staff are a small portion of our much larger organization. We have OU staff, students, and alumni involved in helping build this extension of our developments out. In Summer 2020, and as the COVID impacts stopped practically all programming everywhere, we started offering virtual summer camps as one of the only departments at The University of Oklahoma. In doing so we started to mature our own practices of developing summer camps, growing coaches, mentoring youth, and diversifying our programs to fill in the Summer months. Thanks to this collective efforts of our Intercollegiate Esports pillar we are able to scale up camps programming to provide synergy across differing titles and continue to build our legacy in the space.
