The Nike Golf Academy Junior Programme
“The Nike Junior Golf Programme is based upon the Long Term Athlete Development programme which strives to create the best athletes possible and then promote these athletes to specialise in golf.
PGA Professionals Jonathan Pearson and Phillip Akers will teach your child about golf techniques, etiquette and the rules of golf. The programme will also encourage your child to move more efficiently through learning different fundamental movement skills which are essential to the physical development of children.
Throwing, catching, jumping, frisbee and even dodgeball (weather permitting!) will make up just some of the new programme. Be prepared for something brand new, the likes of which many Acadamies will never have seen before.
Your child will also be encouraged to use their imagination to devise new games and techniques through exploration learning. All athletes will be taught the importance of the correct diet to maintain health and performance and also learn how to become mentally robust to help them be the best golfer they can be. Above all it will be conducted in a fun and friendly environment.
‘‘Spencer is still smiling about the lesson & can’t wait for the next session. As for me i think the operation you are running is fantastic & a credit to you”
Gavin Datkiewicz – Parent
”Joshua came home and showed us how to grip a club properly and swing the club amongst other things, never have we seen him so vocal about anything and so enthusiastic”
Chris Paul – Parent
The programme will be delivered in a manner which will help your child love the game of golf and understand how they can maximise their enjoyment and performance through being educated in the physical, psychological and nutritional facets of the game. Where possible we will endeavour to take athletes on the course as much as we can. We believe it is is just as important to play golf on the course as it is to practice on the range.
In addition the DeVere Futures Programme will provide funding for scholarships and elite programmes for outstanding prospects identified through this coaching scheme.
Jonathan and Phillip have extensive experience with coaching children.
