GRIT Highlights
GAME INTELLIGENCE TRAINING
INNOVATIVE SKILL DEVELOPMENT
GRIT Approach
The technical experts at KOOH Sports have developed GRIT™ - The KOOH Sports 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 KOOH Sports.
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.
KOOH Sports 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
Each individuals' ability differs. Here we believe in identifying the differing abilities of kids and equipping them with proper facilities and give them an opportunity to grow, learn and discover their true potential.
