Program History


Founded January 2012, the True Grit Sports Academy’s Academics Program - “the Scholars” (an after school program) began their LEGACY. Our TGSA “Scholars” strive to meet the standard that all True Grit Sports student - athletes honor and maintain, throughout their academic and sports careers. The TGSA “Scholars” must maintain a passing GPA in all courses to participate. This is a requirement for all TGSA athletes in any TGSA program. Further. They must honor present (each other) and the respect the past (TGSA Alumni) – (see

More importantly, the TGSA Academic program provides for the tutoring needs of the student-athletes we are committed to by our mission. We have established our tutors and tutoring services at local “public school” locations. We are providing the same opportunity for quality tutoring as we have "historically" done for sports training and conditioning.

Our tutoring is not limited to TGSA student-athletes. We will provide tutoring for any student attending the school we are providing the service. The TGSA student-athletes are required to attend tutoring (3 hrs a week). This is a prerequisite before they receive sports training and conditioning.

Our after school program – TGSA Scholars (SAT/ACT prep and Study Hall) has best prepared our TGSA high school student - athletes who are college bound and seeking sports scholarships. Our SAT/ACT prep course is offered to our senior TGSA student athletes. Our TGSA “Study Hall” is required for to all of our TGSA student athletes. Their participation in the TGSA Academics (Scholars)program is a mandatory requirement to participate in any TGSA program.

In addition, all are required to perform community service hours to participate in TGSA. Our high school TGSA student-athlete will provide their community services hours as "interns" at our tutoring locations.

Moe importantly, all involved (ADULTS) are Department of Justice approved before they have any contact with the students. Our tutoring services cover 6 – 12 grades and all subjects.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
