What's in the USG Playbook?


The USG Playbook: our unique training curriculum for members of Uncommon Sports Group.
USG's "The Playbook"

A career in the sport industry can be filled with unique pressures and temptations. At Uncommon Sports Group, we provide faith-based training, resources, and relationships that develop leaders to successfully navigate these challenges.


The number one way we raise up Christ-centered leaders in the sport industry is through our newly-designed, virtual Academy for students to complete throughout the year. Our goal for the USG Academy is to guide and equip students with the proper disciplines and tools to grow in their relationship with the Lord, build authentic community, and live a purpose-driven life.


The eight-week training includes:

  • Weekly purposes that help you answer some of life’s biggest questions. This stems from Rick Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life, and covers five different purposes we’re called to.

  • Daily journal pages to do simultaneously with reading The Purpose Driven Life. This leads you through prayer time, scripture to study, and questions to answer.

  • Weekly assignments that put the training into practical exercises, including informational interviews, resume writing, testimonials and Gospel presentations, Strengths coaching.

  • Weekly calls with a certified USG Coach who walks alongside you and encourages you throughout the training.

With Rick Warren’s, The Purpose Driven Life, our Academy walks you through life’s greatest question and five purposes to help you find and fulfill your life purpose here on earth. The six topics that are deeply studied are:


  1. What on earth am I here for?

  2. Planned For God’s Pleasure → What will be the center of my life?

  3. Formed For God’s Family → What will be the community of my life?

  4. Created To Become Like Christ → What will be the character of my life?

  5. Shaped For Serving God → What will be the contribution of my life?

  6. Made For A Mission → What will be the communication of my life?
