Cougar Esports is excited to support these efforts and help prepare our students for the esports jobs of tomorrow, today!
Cougar Esports Arena
The arena will open in Fall 2021. It is located on the 2nd floor of the William G. Rohrer Center, and is visible from the foyer as you enter the building. Overlooking the intersection of Route 70 and Springdale Road in Cherry Hill, the 1600-square-foot Cougar Esports Arena will feature:
- A welcome desk to check players in before entering.
- A raised competition stage and an opening gaming area for general usage.
- 25 high-performance gaming PCs with streaming broadcast capabilities.
- Comfortable competition chairs.
- A fully equipped broadcast area and an esports anchor desk that integrate multiple camera views and microphones for student “shoutcasters” to provide live play-by-play entertainment during matches.
Cougar Esports Career Pathways
The emphasis of Cougar Esports is on career pathways for the jobs of tomorrow. Academic programming is being built around the arena activities to prepare students for jobs in esports broadcasts and streaming. A collegiate varsity team is being formed for league play, and the Cougar Esports will be the production hub for all esports activities in the local high schools.
Cougar Esports Team
Starting this fall, Camden County College will create collegiate esports teams for league play. The teams will practice, strategize and compete in the new Cougar Esports Arena. Much like traditional athletes, players will be supported with coaches and development programs.
