Junior Competitive Skills Development

The Road to Competitive Junior Golfing Success

 

This program in three stages will require your junior golfer to commit to the long-term competitive golf life. The aim is to assist players in developing their own unique blueprints to success with a range of training activities specially designed for each stage of their golf progression. Too many aspiring junior golfers are not optimizing their practices, which results in little to no success.

We align with:

  1. Golf Canada's Long-Term Player Development (LTPD 2.0) guide for golf, which focuses on developing the “whole” golfer instead of exclusively on technical golf skills.

  2. Golf Canada Junior Skills program.  

  3. Titleist Performance Institute Junior 2 Program. The TPI philosophy focuses on developing the junior athlete, teaching golf-specific skills, and creating a long-term love of the game.

  4. US KIds and Operation 36 Golf on course development models

Our 4 foundational criteria for performance, delivered in association with our Supporting Partners:

Technical- working with and developing an understanding of Launch Monitor and other data to focus on the correct Performance Indicators for improvement

Equipment

Ensuring that the clubs work for the junior

Performance

Learning best scoring practices.

Physical

Golf is an athletic endeavor and the body must be trained accordingly

All juniors joining our JCSD program must first undergo a Junior Combine Assessment which includes a Titleist Performance Institute screening for us to specifically tailor the right program for them.

BEGINNER - BC

Intended for juniors who would like to start exploring the world of competitive golf. Their involvement in this program will be in a non-pressured environment while developing the skills necessary to succeed, both in golf and generally.

INTERMEDIARY - IC

Intended for junior golfers who are transitioning into greater structure and are being exposed to more of the complex fundamentals of the competitive skill set (to undertake tournament golf).

ADVANCED -AC/EDP (Elite Development Program)

For junior golfers who have determined that they see a future in serious golf and want to move forward to regional/national/college level and beyond. Increasing the level of intensity, the goal is to extract the full potential of your junior with the process, focus and a comprehensive training regime. This year-long program utilizes tools to baseline your junior vs age correlated accepted standards/statistics, and incorporate aspects of sports psychology to train the winning mindset. 

 

NOTE: The AC/EDP level is by qualification/invitation only.
