Junior Academy

2017 will see our junior programs and academy continue to develop and grow.  Our programs encompass all levels and ages from 4 to 18.

Following Golf Canada’s Long Term Player Development Guide, our programs will continue to grow the game and instill a love for golf in our junior students. To help aid in this, all juniors enrolled in our instruction programs (from FUNdamentals to Introduction to Competition) will be able to join us in our GBC Golf Academy Junior Night.

These nights will take place once a month and will allow for juniors to be assessed in our junior hat levels as well as make new friends.

We believe with the programs we have in place and our dedicated coaching team we are able to give juniors the coaching, instruction, and positive support needed for them to improve their games and grow as an individual. We have a clear path for our juniors to follow to enable them to see long term improvement and achieve their golfing potential.

We look forward to seeing them in 2017!

The Introduction to Competition program, coached by GBC Academy Director or Golf and BC Golf Head Coach Matt Cella, will see junior golfers develop to a level that will enable them to compete on their high school golf team or at the local and provincial levels. Students will continue to develop their basic golf skills while also being introduced to more complex skills. Appropriate competitions with a focus on gaining tournament knowledge and experience is top priority, rather than winning and/or results. Coaching Support from Coach Cella at select local tournaments is also provided.

Individuals interested in the sport of golf should consider making it one of their top two sports with their other favorite sport(s) in opposite seasons. (i.e golf in the spring and summer and another sport such as hockey in the late fall and winter.)
