As the end of the school year approaches, Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada are looking to expand participant numbers in Golf in Schools by providing the option of customizable kits for high school teachers.
In previous cases, high schools were requesting additional equipment or could not purchase the entire kit due to budget restrictions. With the addition of customizable kits, teachers may now purchase clubs, mats, balls and tees separately to suit their needs.
“This is a welcome addition to the program that will please many Physical Education teachers” said Golf In Schools coordinator, Kelly Woloshyn. “Our goal is to get as many students as possible golfing, and this is just one of the many ways in which we can accomplish that.”
New in 2012, the High School program was introduced as an extension of the Elementary program to provide students with more advanced programming for adolescents. The Golf in Schools learning resource is endorsed by Physical Health Education (PHE) Canada, and is structured to accommodate all teachers, regardless of their golf background.
Golf in Schools is constantly evolving to find new and innovative ways to get more youth playing golf – a game for a lifetime.
