We are excited to announce the launch of Armada Academy, a team based in Colorado focused on developing the best up and coming talent from around the state. Armada Academy will compete in multiple titles including Fortnite, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, FGC, and more. We are also partnering up with RoughRiders Esports to give players the opportunity to grow inside and outside of the game.
Academy members will have access to the 180,000 sq ft Sport Stable, the home of RoughRiders Esports located in Superior Colorado. Sports Stable will serve as the official training facility of Armada. The facility includes a gaming space, workout area, physical therapist, nutritionist, hockey rinks, restaurants and much more. The RoughRiders Esports staff will coach and mentor Academy members teaching them healthy gaming habits as they compete in online and LAN competitions. Stay tuned as we introduce the first member of Armada Academy in the coming weeks!
"RoughRiders Esports was founded with the mission of creating a better environment for the next generation of gamers. For us, it's all about increasing total package self-efficacy in competitive gamers so that they can find success in any area they set their sights on." said Rafe Kossak, Director of Esports for RoughRiders Sports Club. "We are very excited to be able to assist Armada in their Academy development. We believe it won't be long until Armada Academy members are preeminent competitors in their respective games and model representatives of the Esports community at large."
Esports in Colorado continues to grow with the recent openings of Esports Arena in Colorado Springs and Localhost in Denver. Both of these venues host competitions almost every evening across various titles giving competitive and casual players alike a place to test their skills in a LAN environment. This is only the beginning as we continue to establish ourselves in our home-state of Colorado.
