Coleg Sir Gar, a college in South Wales with multiple campuses, has teamed up with UK esports organisation Tenstar for a training programme.

Coleg Sir Gar Gamers (CSGG) announced the academy programme – a collaborative project between CSGG and the Tenstar Accelerated Professional Player (TAP³) initiative – will be accessible to advanced Valorant players.

The programme will aim to cultivate the next generation of esports talent. It will let gamers compete and improve, and receive training, coaching and analysis from esports professionals. This will include performance psychology and emotional progression support, according to this announcement post on the Coleg Sir Gar website.

CSGG is hoping to recruit an academy head coach and three more players to join its existing two Welsh Master players in its academy roster. College students Harrison James and Jacob Tomlinson have previously competed in the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) and Epic.LAN.


“We welcome gamers from any background to begin a journey with CSGG and Tenstar that will help to develop your esports performance, knowledge and skills,” CSGG said in a statement.

Tenstar first announced their TAP³ esports path to pro initiative after winning the Valorant UK & Ireland Skirmish last year.

Tenstar are a relatively new esports organisation in the UK, which ramped up activities in 2021. They have links with Adamo Gaming, which recently laid off staff.

In other recent Welsh esports news, Blasters beat Wolves to win Lenovo Regions Rocket League tournament, representing Wales, while Esports Wales announced new Welsh Masters tournaments.

And on the education side of things, HSDC College hired a UK League of Legends coach to lead its esports teaching team, and West Suffolk College has been hosting a series of esports industry talks.
