Participating in a U.S. Kids Golf Certified Seminar enhances the instructor’s knowledge of all aspects of youth golf that can be utilized to enhance his/her current program or provide the basis for establishing new offerings. Areas of focus during the seminar include:
Equipment: The importance of properly-fitted clubs to maximize success for both young golfers and their instructors.
Course Yardages: Research regarding proper length of course set up for players based on the length they can achieve will be provided so that instructors will become experts in golf course setup and yardages. Tailoring the course for young golfers will result in lower scores, encouraging more rounds and increasing retention.
Enhancing Current Junior Programs: Tools, resources, best practices and bringing “fun” to their junior programs through a games-based curriculum. The seminars will feature an outdoor session that will demonstrate game-based learning with games from the U.S. Kids Golf Book of Games.
More dates and locations will be added for the Fall and Winter. If you are intereseted in attending a future seminar please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
