In the True Champion sport programs , participants move step by step through short-term modules on the pathway to their long-term goals.

A- Online training can be accomplished by almost everyone and is advantageous because of its individual pace in completing mental & physical tasks at ones own pace. The continued improvement of interactive computer systems has furthered the ability to take True Champion training on all web linked devices from stationary computers to portable devices. Therefore, if you can access the internet on a computer or portable device, you can use True Champion's online training program.
A-Online training has existed for over 30 years. When it was first launched, there was some doubt from education experts about its capacity to match traditional classroom or in-person teaching. Research has long proved that the ability to complete tasks at the participant's own pace is a great advantage and online courses are now offered by all manner of institutions in almost all disciplines. The way it works is that the teacher (in our case, the coach) does all the preparatory work in advance and produces the training content, with exercise and controls . They are loaded on the website and become accessible at any time. Trainers can use the program at their convenience and return to repeat a lesson as many times as they like.
A- A cohort or buddy system can be a great way to take a sport-training program through True Champion, but not necessarily. A coach, or leader, can also utilize the program applying the concepts, training, and principles to their team.
A- An advantage of online training is that members can complete the programs at their own pace and revisit training segments. However, the manner of sport training in True Champion has an advantage if completed in the reasonably designated time period as what is learned in one session is often carried over physically and mentally to the next.

Skype and phone calls can be used where possible, or the session could be in person (face to face). You schedule, book, and pay for the one-on-one session from the comfort of your dashboard, once you have created your account and subscribed to a sport.
A- There may be questions about application of techniques or individual questions that need clarifying, although True Champion courses are designed to be self-contained for our members.
A-Once you have subscribed to a sport, you can request a one-on-one session. You will receive a response with an agreement on your time or a counter-proposal. When the time is confirmed, you then pay for the session. Once this is done, you need to be ready on the day and time for your coach to make contact and training will start.
A- The only limit to the number of one-on-one sessions you can book is your coach's availability, which of course may vary from one coach to another. You can always discuss this with your coach and if you would like many sessions, you may schedule them in advance in an agreed long-term program.
Making sure that a member has understood and is applying lessons learned is an important criterion for repeat sessions.
