Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia are excited to offer an introduction to the MyGolf program through the newly created Sporting Schools program.
Sporting Schools is a Federal Government initiative that will engage more than 850,000 children across Australia in what will be the country’s largest school-based participation programme. The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) has partnered with 32 national sporting organisations (NSOs) to offer sporting programmes to children before, during or after school.
Registration is FREE for all Australian primary schools, sporting organisations, and coaches. The ASC aims to brings sports, schools, and community organisations together, which in turn will increase children’s participation in sport and connect with local sporting clubs in their community.
Within the MyGolf Sporting Schools program we aim to introduce children to the game of Golf through fun, engaging and challenging games and activities that are easily suited and adapted for a range of age groups and skill levels. The MyGolf Sporting Schools program is designed to increase participation and engagement in Golf by children by providing a quality introduction to the game in the school environment. The MyGolf Sporting Schools Program is a 4 week in school program with an optional 5th week at a local Golf Club or Facility to further enhance the children’s experience.
Local Golf Clubs and MyGolf Junior Club Centres ae encouraged to get involved by registering to provide coaches to deliver the program to local schools or to work closely with their state/territory association and foundation to arrange the school visit to the club or provide information regarding how to continue be a part of the MyGolf program after Sporting Schools.
