About This Activity

The PGA Sports Academy program is a collaborative framework based on research and best practices from PGA Professionals, PGA Education, Allied associations and the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) standards for juniors, adopted by the PGA World Alliance. The PGA Sports Academy’s focus is to develop core golfers and provide them with pathways to continue to play golf socially or competitively based on each individual’s desire. Fun – First And Foremost We must make sure new golfers are engaged and have a fun, interactive experience. To educate and get juniors involved in golf is the goal, but keeping it fun is the primary focus. It’s crucial that instructors enjoy the experience—juniors will sense your love of the sport and hopefully become golfers for a lifetime. PGA Sports Academy Curriculum Overview: The PGA Sports Academy will help youth learn to play golf and have fun in the process. The PGA Sports Academy has three levels: Player, Sport and Champion.
