“Discovering The Tactical Games this year has made my everyday life more meaningful and exciting. As an administrator (desk jockey), for a law enforcement and military training company, I didn’t typically train with the instructors, officers, and equipment we at Team One Network work with every day. I sat in my office, pushing paperwork and crunching numbers. This year, Team One Network has allowed me the opportunity to train for TTG with the best firearms instructors and equipment available in the industry. I’ve been able to attend/compete at 5 TTG events and each time I walk away with a better understanding of fitness and firearms.
Robert and I couldn’t do any of it without the support from our instructors, sponsors, and The Tactical Games community. The team at Blackhawk- George, James, Cayce and Courtney- went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were at every event cheering us on. Team One Network Instructors Mark Suchy, Matt Mander, Steve Johnson spent hours working with us on the range. Penguin Pack leader, Karla Herdzik was essential in my training for TTG. Blayr Drumm at Smoke Sheaux Nutrition coached me on better nutrition habits and Coach Mike at Culpeper CrossFit kicks my ass every morning.
I put in the work and I’m a better person for it, but I’m not done, now I’m looking forward to The Tactical Games 2023 season. See you in Meridian!”
“This year, participating in The Tactical Games allowed me the opportunity to meet and network with other professionals in the industry. I challenged myself by entering the occupational division at the 2022 TTG National competition, giving me the chance to compete against some of the best law enforcement and military athletes from within TTG community. I grew this year both as a shooter and as an athlete from the support of Team One Network, our sponsors, and my fellow competitors. I’m excited to see what the 2023 season has in store for me!”
