The Tactical Games University (TGU) is a training initiative designed to blend the two most basic elements of a tactical athlete- marksmanship and fitness. The Tactical Games University is comprised of courses that include a one-day event preparation course, a two-day athlete development course, and a five-day instructor certification course. TGU also provides custom training options to agencies and units who would like to increase their capabilities while increasing the usable life span of their officers/operators.
The Tactical Games University (TGU) is a two day course designed to enhance the shooter or tactical athlete skill ability in marksmanship (both rifle and pistol) and fitness regardless of their current skill set while shooting under physical duress. This will be done by building a good marksmanship foundation in the morning and early afternoon and then employing that marksmanship under physical duress of mini battles. These mini battles will improve the athletes ability to strategize a battle, build mental toughness while pushing the athletes marksmanship and physical ability to be successful during The Tactical Games.
The marksmanship emphasis will be on ensuring the shooter/athlete has a good 50 meter rifle zero, understands rifle point of aim verse point of impact. Pistol marksmanship will focus on making sure the shooter/athlete had a solid marksmanship fundamentals to make a 50 meter pistol shot. We will also cover weapons manipulation and positional shooting with both the rifle and pistol and shooting under physical duress. The fitness portion will address functional fitness, nutrition, recovery and a training plan.
