Please note the Sub Junior level is a more advanced level, suitable for juniors that have received coaching for longer than 1 year and that are proficient to play on the course.
Objective: To teach the student the fundamentals of striking the ball and all rules and etiquette of the game to enable them to play on a golf course as soon as possible. Our coach’s have constructed games that are both fun and technically challenging to all levels. All of these “games” are designed to improve the skill level which will be tested at the end of each term.
Overview: Classes will run for 1 hour each week for 8-11 weeks depending on the length of the school term. Classes will follow a predictable structure each week:
- Introduction and safety rules (every session)
- Warm up activities
- Skill development with technique assistance
- Games and game based learning
- Summary, overview and announcements
Activities, games and skill areas (chipping, putting etc) will be adjusted to suit the needs of the juniors
In the last two weeks of each term the coaches will facilitate skills challenges with the students. The second last week of term will be a practice run on the skills challenge. These skills challenges will allow the student/parents better understand the student’s skill level and provide feedback on areas that require more attention.
The juniors will be awarded three skill levels according to the performance in the challenges:
