Summer Elite Series logo

The Summer Elite Series is a comprehensive 6 week training and match program executed and coached by elite Lonestar staff (Select staff with a C license or higher). Players are assigned to teams at the beginning of the program for the most effective training and most competitive games possible, and participate in a weekly training session tailored around the most fundamental and critical attributes of a current or potential Lonestar player. Teams then compete in a weekly 5v5 game and practice the application of the training topics in a fun, competitive game environment with the coaches.
