“We’re thrilled to partner with Serena Williams, truly one of the greatest tennis champions of all time, to teach our coaches the best way to inspire and train aspiring young athletes,” said Samir Bolar, Executive Director at Training Grounds. “As we transition our Training Grounds program into schools, Serena’s ‘Champion’s Mindset’ course will be an essential coaching tool in developing young gamers that are goal-oriented, healthy, and resilient.”

In the Training Grounds Champion’s Mindset course, Serena Williams personally details the practices and mindset shifts that drove her to become one of the greatest athletes of all time. The course also includes specific tips for coaching a Champion’s Mindset with young esports players. “Hard work, practice and dedication are so important when you’re working to become the best and make your dreams come true, whether that be in sport or something different,” said Williams. “As an advisor on Cloud9, I am excited to team up on their Training Grounds program to help nurture these skills in students everywhere.”

In collaboration with the Positive Coaching Alliance, an organization dedicated to creating a positive youth sports culture, Cloud9 is offering the Champion’s Mindset course free on its website for school coaches, parents, and educators to use as part of their youth development work.
