E-Sports benefits thousands of children worldwide every weekend. However, we wouldn’t have nearly as much impact as a program without the service, sacrifice, and leadership of our volunteer coaches. These special individuals embody the heart of E-Sports by facilitating, leading, and exemplifying inclusion every time they step onto the field, court, studio, or dojo.
Cameron Moland is a 24 year old college student attending City College of San Francisco. He is a marketing major and became interested in E-Sports when his friends at school invited him to volunteer at an E-Sports session. Cameron has been a volunteer coach for E-Sports for the past four years. He typically works with younger children ranging from first to third grade. His primary roles at E-Hoops in San Francisco are a one-on-one coach and to support different children who need more attention to thrive in an inclusive physical activity setting.
He said when asked what his favorite part about being a coach at E-Sports, “It’s really cool seeing the kids develop and learn to work with other kids as they grow…” Cameron is one of many coaches whose favorite part about volunteering at E-Sports is being able to witness both the physical and social growth of the children that participate.
Also similar to other coaches throughout the E-Sports community, Cameron is learning just as much from the kids he works with as they learn from him. He said when asked what he has been learning the most volunteering at E-Sports, “I’ve learned and grown the most in my patience and also how to take little victories…”
