Youth esports platform Vanta has announced their official partnership with Wisdom Gaming as the official coaching partner for the Minnesota Varsity League (MNVL). The partnership will aim to expand coaching and development opportunities available for students participating in MNVL esports programs.

Minnesota’s home for high school esports, MNVL has grown its operations to over 60 high schools with around 1200 students participating in the program state-wide. With the mission to provide students with skills and opportunities to grow both in and outside of the classroom, MNVL’s partnership with Vanta’s kid-safe esports platform allows teams and players to learn from mentors and teachers who will help them continue to gain essential skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to partner with the MNVL, one of the premier scholastic esports organizations in the United States. The group has established a reputation for developing some of the fiercest competitive teams in the scholastic space and we’re looking forward to helping them enhance their league even more through use of our expert coaches,” Zach Fabi, co-founder of Vanta, said.

Vanta’s development program focuses not only on developing in-game skills, but also in helping players grow holistically. In addition to teaching players how to get better at the games they love, each game curriculum includes instruction on self improvement in areas such as social emotional learning, communication, decision-making, teamwork, and critical thinking.

“As we enter our fourth season, it’s important for us to take inventory on how we can further and expand our capabilities to support students excel not only in competition but also with core developmental skills. We’re thrilled to have Vanta as a partner for our Fall 2022 season to offer additional coaching resources for students as they continue to grow as esports competitors and students,” Jake Utities, Director of Minnesota Varsity League, said.

MNVL schools and players will be able to access Vanta’s services starting during the organization’s fall league, which begins with preseason competition on October 3, 2022. Registration for the fall season closes on September 30, 2022.
