Why Community Golf Coach?

A Community Golf Coach who has better depth in his or her skills when working with youth and children can greatly benefit a CN Future Links program. The workshop is an ideal opportunity for you, the coach, to reflect on your current understanding of children, junior golf, and the environment children participate in. Community golf coaches have the opportunity to have an impact on the lives of children being introduced to golf in Canada.

Who?

The Community Golf Coach may already help or volunteer at their local golf club or even assist with a PGA Professional with an emphasis on some of the following individuals: Lead volunteers? Parents? Club members? PGA members (CFM)? Junior Coordinators?

This workshop has been designed for the Community Golf Coach who is, or would like to, work with children or youth and is introducing the basic skills of golf. The overall goal of this workshop is to help prepare you to be competent in the skills required by a community coach.We are confident that these two days will be a great opportunity for you to reflect on some of your current understandings of children, junior golf and the environments children want to participate in.

There will be plenty of opportunities to share your thoughts, opinions and laughter with other Community Golf Coaches during the training. Not only will we have interactive classroom discussion, but we will also put that theory into action by getting hands on practice with outdoor components.

Your facilitator is an experienced PGA of Canada member who is currently active with successful junior programs using CN Future Links as the core programming. There will be opportunities to learn more about CN Future Links during this workshop. This workshop falls under the Community Stream within the National Coaching Certification Program. Following this workshop, you will receive an NCCP# with the Coaching Association of Canada (or will automatically be added to your transcript if you already have an existing NCCP# from another sport).

If you have any questions on this workshop, please contact Kate Lawson at kate@pgaofcanada.com or 1-800-782-5764 ext. 225
