About Us

About Us

About us: History

I am Eric Thompson, owner of True Grit Sports – Conditioning, LLC. Originally, established as Goldrush Youth Foundation, (a youth track and field, and basketball organization) 2002. In 2005, the sports training and conditioning component of Goldrush Youth Foundation, re-established itself as “True Grit Sports” Training and Conditioning. In 2008, True Grit Sports Training and Conditioning was licensed with the City of Elk Grove as “True Grit Sports” – Conditioning, LLC. We have been a licensed and insured member of the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce, since 2009.

To date, we (TGS/SP) have acquired many years professional (sports) development training, (sports) conditioning training and (sports) science education. This is in addition to my own participation in youth, high school, and college sports.

As a result, after 10 years, we developed a service marked / trademarked “drills and skills development” training unique “only” to True Grit Sports.

The sports skill development of our athletes, our training techniques, and the success of our athletes, are nationally recognized. As a result,  all have developed into our nation’s finest college and university “scholarship” athletes. More importantly, most of our TGS athletes have continued with their sports interest into the competitive amateur and professional sports levels (see TGS Alumni).  

Trainers

TGS/SP Trainers

All TGS/SP trainers are insured and certified TGS/SP sports training professionals. All are (TGS/SP) National Injury Prevention (IPT) certified and CPR/First Aid, certified professional trainers. All are insured and bonded through True Grit Sports - LLC. All are approved with the Ca. Department of Justice criminal background certifications.

Most of our trainers are current sports professional athletes or college sports athletes. Many are still competing at the amateur and professional levels. As a result, your athletes benefit from an instructor/trainer with the most current training techniques and sports preparation skills/drills.

Training

Training

TGS/SP has developed sports training and conditioning techniques adopted from many sports. All adapted to create efficient athletic performance.  We understand what is needed to develop an ATHLETE who participates in sports. We apply several known theories and principles of Kinesiology to help develop our athletes.

More importantly, our understanding of the principles of human movement, and our efficient use of movement/motion, is applied in the development of our athletes. As a result, we will evaluate and determined the necessary “sports performance training” adjustments required specifically for the athlete and the sport. More importantly, we will tailor the training to the athlete and sport.

Our plan for your organization is to build on your current athletic status. We will continue to developed agility with speed and balance. We will continue to developed core strength to assist with the development of agility. Our concern is the male or female athlete’s needs and abilities. 

We will continue to develop sports agility through the development of lateral and vertical explosion (fast muscle twitch). This is all accomplished through various TGS/SP sports conditioning “signature” drills and exercises.

Our training schedule will be designed to develop your athletes throughout the his or her sports season. We will not train or develop your athlete to a “peak performance”, before he or she needs to perform at his or her best. 

Cost

Cost

Our the professional sports training and conditioning expertise, provided at every training session, is valued at several hundred dollars, per session. However, our goal is to provide the area’s best sports training and conditioning to  ANY athlete committed to being GREAT. As a result, our rates are more than reasonable when compared to the others with equal success and results.

Our rates will vary.  Our calculations are based on the athlete, the sport and the length/time of the training required. In addition, our cost is established either as per athlete or a flat (group) rate.
