Our Coaches

At Training Grounds, we believe positive coaching has the greatest impact on a gamer’s performance on and off the field.

Training Approach

Skills-Based

Every coaching session targets a specific skill through curriculum, then breaks out into drills, mini-games, or VOD reviews to put the skill into motion.

Growth- Oriented

Coaches model TG values by creating a positive community focused on growth and learning.

Personalized

Coaches provide small group and 1:1 coaching support to provide personal coaching to fill the needs of every player and team.

FEATURED COACHES

While most coaches are highly ranked, semi-pro players, our best coaches exemplify TG values – community, growth, excellence, mentorship, courage and play.
