Junior golfers are the future volunteers and committee personnel for our club. Last term Golf SA visited three of our local schools and conducted clinics with the year 5, 6 and 7 groups. The kids really enjoyed it and they want more. Even the school staff want more.
Conducting activities with the schools is a great way for the golf club to raise its profile in the community and encourage whole families to participate if they want to. Conducting a 3-4 one hour per week golf program as part of the schools PE sessions plus a visit to the golf course is the best way to get the kids involved and is exactly what will be happening at Mt Burr PS in May 2018. Other larger schools have not yet been approached because of the lack of club volunteers to help which is a shame because there are naturally a lot more kids at those schools.
We have a Volunteer Community Instructor willing to run the coaching clinics but the instructor needs helpers. If you are interested in being a helper/supervisor you will need to do the “Working with Children” certificate. Its all done online and when you have completed it you will be reimbursed by Golf SE.
