Since its inception in 2009, the Golf in Schools program has grown to be in over 2,700 schools across Canada. In the six years since, Golf in Schools has continued to evolve its programming to appeal to the dynamic interests of both teachers and students.
In its most significant change to-date, Golf in Schools has introduced revamped learning resources to include life skills curriculum for the existing Elementary and High School levels. Alongside the new curriculums, Golf in Schools also expanded with a brand-new Intermediate level for grades 6 – 8—now available for the 2015/16 school year.
Golf Canada, along with in-depth research support from the University of Ottawa, carefully spliced eight life skills throughout all lessons provided in the learning resources. With the change, teachers running the program gain a more streamlined approach on how to best maximize lessons learned through golf—see below:
