In order to improve in and eventually dominate their respective sport, students are trained to be faster, quicker, more agile, and powerful. They also learn the things outside of the physical to make them better athletes, such as sports nutrition and sports psychology to give them an edge.
Student athletes learn about different colleges and divisions that best align with their skill-set and goals. They also are introduced to different career paths, including careers in sports, to assist them in choosing a major. GP Champions also are exposed to different universities through college tours.
Student athletes are introduced to entrepreneurship, both for profit and nonprofit business start-up ideas, learning how to build a business by fulfilling a need in their communities. They also learn how to develop their brand to monetize off of their Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL).
