The UCI Esports Overwatch Bootcamp is a summer program for high-level Overwatch (PC only) players that have aspirations to play at the collegiate or professional level. The camp will be led by UCI’s scholarship Overwatch team and coaching staff. Campers will receive strategic coaching and learn about team play, communication, VOD review and how to take their game to the next level. Additionally, campers will learn about UCI, the Esports program, and collegiate and professional esports.

Our target audience is high school students currently in their junior or senior years of high school, but we encourage everyone who is interested in attending this camp to apply, as we may make a few exceptions based on other circumstances and qualifications.

Please note that the list of staff, guests, and the schedule is subject to change in the weeks leading up to the camps. This is still a work in progress as we continue to refine our curriculum to make sure that our camps are as enjoyable and educational as they can be while still accommodating our staff and all campers.
