Sheepdog Response is partnering with Rogue American to bring you the Rogue Responder TTRC course. This event will be a first of it’s kind that you don’t want to miss. We will provide a comprehensive and challenging strength and conditioning program to kick off each morning leading into our course work developed by Matt Devine, a strength and conditioning coach for the Department of Defense. We will spend one day learning key concepts and skills in the classroom. We will then spend the second day applying those concepts in real world simulations that will challenge both your fitness and your ability to operate while under stress.
This course is open to anyone. No experience is necessary, and no medical equipment is required for this course. All training gear will be provided to you during the course. Get some of the best hands-on training in the world. This new course is heavily based on hands-on, real-world training scenarios.
