In celebration of the second annual Adopt a School Week, Acura has extended their commitment to Canadian junior golf by adopting 10 schools into the Future Links, driven by Acura Golf in Schools program.
“We understand the importance of early education and exposure to sport, that’s why Acura is delighted to support various youth initiatives across Canada. Offering schools the opportunity and resources to teach young students the game through the Golf in Schools program will help to grow the love of golf from the ground up,” said Gary Gill, Senior Manager, Acura Sales and Marketing.
In total, Acura has adopted six high schools and four intermediate schools from the communities of their zone offices.
“Having Acura step up to adopt intermediate and high schools is significant,” said Jeff Thompson, Golf Canada’s Chief Sport Officer. “These two tiers of the Future Links, driven by Acura Golf in Schools program are relatively new and thus we don’t have the same level of awareness about these programs. Being able to offer the program to 10 schools will go a long way in allowing students to experience our great sport while learning valuable life skills.”
Through their continued support, Acura will be providing communities across Canada with the entire program kit, which features safe, age-appropriate equipment along with a teacher-friendly learning resource to assist in the delivery of the curriculum.
“The intermediate and high school programs are slightly more expensive due to the type of equipment that is provided to schools so having adoptions specifically targeted at these schools is very meaningful,” added Thompson.
