GRIT Approach
The technical experts at SPORTZ VILLAGE Academies have developed GRIT™ - The SPORTZ VILLAGE Academies Way of training, based on the globally renowned L-TAD (Long Term Athletic Development) model. Splitting with the traditional coaching methodology, GRIT™ is the foundation of all training Programs at SportzVillage Academies.
In order to develop cognitive training skills, our researchers mapped the brain skills that are required for top performance in any game. The intent is to train the young players to perceive, analyse and gauge opportunities and act in the best possible manner in any game situation. Together, they constitute what is usually referred to as game intelligence.
Success is a sum of all small efforts REPEATED DAILY. The rationale here is; to become an expert, one needs to be instinctive - a quality that can be developed through repetitive training.
SPORTZ VILLAGE Academies splits far from the customary standards of training while each curriculum being devised using innovative and progressive teaching techniques. These techniques help in increased retention and seamless movement from one skill level to another
