It ranges from tailor-made training sessions (tutorials and drills), to performance assessment and analysis tools, as well as daily competitions with prizes and even networking with professional players in the sector (sponsors, teams) for the most talented of them.

All players are also eligible for the Nicecactus Grassroots Esports Fund, a $1 million grant program, through which they can cover travel and accommodation expenses to participate in bootcamps at professional training locations or tournaments they have qualified for.
