our coaches


My name is Marcaille “Papa_Capes” Fransman. I played for one of the top competitive teams in South Africa – VxP|Elem3ntriX. I’ve got 5 years of experience coaching extra-mural activities. I’ve coached rugby at a high school level as well as coached kids and assisted developing skills from ages 4 – 18. I was also a player-coach for a professional Rugby League team.

My main focus is Rocket League. My highest rank achieved thus far is Champ 2 Division 3 in 3v3. I hate 1v1 because I enjoy being part of a team. There is so much additional skill required to successfully work well in a team-setting and thus my playstyle is extremely flexible and I also focus on making solid decisions.

My coaching strategy changes from player to player and team to team. Focusing on strengths and weaknesses are literally all coaching comes down to. Together you and I will identify, adapt, and overcome… It’s that simple. I will analyse replays too and then set out a guided training plan for us to follow. As WE then become a team… A coach is NO better or worse than anybody he coaches… Both parties learn from one another, and this is what guarantees success!


Hi, I’m Rick Thomas, better known as Elf_ZA.

Having coached a team for VS Gaming here and there during the 2017 season, I feel comfortable to accept a coaching role for RLX.

I have played for Rocket Éclair since the start of competitive Rocket League in South Africa, where we were also the number one seed for long. Recently, during the 2018 roster-shuffle, I got picked up by VxP | Elem3ntriX.

My highest rank thus far was Champion and I’m intent on pursuing an even higher level of play in the season to come.

I work at a school where I also do coaching for various sports and have good people skills which is important for a Rocket League coach.

A main focus for me is team players as I love the 3v3 format where rotation is key to success.
