Junior Golf is the future of golf, and over the years, I have been privileged to work with many great young golfers. The Performance Academy is targeted at developing young golfers to become the golfer that they want to be. Within each session, juniors will experience golf training integrated with golf fitness.
My instruction is fundamental-based that builds a lasting foundation of knowledge for every aspect of the game of golf. My students will learn golf fundamentals that will instill an understanding of their own golf game and how to self-sufficiently improve their game. This program will provide group coaching with a COMPETITIVE atmosphere.
Committed Elite Program (CEP) is offered as our highest-level program to provide select, high-performance golfers with a comprehensive and systematic approach to training, competing, skill improvement and personal development. Both dedicated young men and women are welcome to participate.
The definition of “Coaching”: In 1830, the word “coach” became a slang reference for a tutor who “carries” a student through an exam, and in 1861 the term was further applied to the athletic world. GPA Coaches embrace this concept of a coach “carrying” a golfer across the skill development process. Coaches do not simply provide players with a map as to how to get to their ultimate destination, but better yet, “carry” them, assist them, guide them, and support them as they embark on the journey.
Maturing into a champion both on and off the course is an exciting challenge for aspiring young athletes and their families. It takes considerable commitment, support, feedback and training. A professional coaching influence combined with effective training and practice is paramount in this process. The Committed Elite Program has a consistent approach to developing and nurturing adolescents so that they will mature into the finest golfers and most outstanding people possible. This specialized program presents committed athletes with an opportunity to realize their goals in both sport and life.
The program is athlete and parent driven in that the activities and the program are steered by the players and their parents. The program is extremely successful and it yields results. Participating athletes experience tremendous growth as young adults and have achieved many outstanding feats as competitive golfers. The GPA prepares participants for life as student-athletes at the university level.
This program offers structured coaching, practice, and training with a focus on core fundamentals; swing technique, fitness, nutrition, short game proficiency, course management and mental skills. Each coaching session will include a combine score and/or competition. (Trackman combine or short game combine). Combine scores will be reassessed and evaluated bi-weekly for each student.
The Junior Competitive Program is the introductory level of GPA and provides the building blocks for a lasting golf game. Young athletes are taught the fundamental skills on a constant basis, skills such as grip, setup, ball position, alignment, etc. Being apart of this program will give young golfers an opportunity to socialize and make golf buddies. The competitive spirit is infused into each session creating a fun “game-like” atmosphere. With competitions and games, young golfers learn the fundamentals by osmosis but also instill a foundation to perform under pressure.
Coaching sessions will cover full-swing and short-game and will incorporate all areas of the game:
Students will have access to golf’s latest technology via Trackman Pro. The Trackman Pro is a radar-based solution for analyzing the golf swing and resulting ball flight. It can pick up valuable information about your club head, giving a precise picture of the club during ball impact. With this knowledge, you can easily determine how your club face or swing path needs to be adjusted. The Trackman is the industry’s most accurate at measuring the golf swing and entire flight of the ball from impact to landing while displaying its 3D trajectory in real time. From 6 foot pitches to 400-yard drives it measures the landing position with an accuracy of 1 foot at 100 yards.
Along with high-speed video and use of the Trackman Pro, students will gain an insight into their swing like never before. They will truly understand ball-flight and how their swing tendencies affect the ball-flight.
The Trackman Pro provides two major capabilities that will create a continuous learning experience for each student.:
Screencasts: On full-swing days, students will have their swing videoed. Each student and I will review the video in the Trackman Performance Studio. There, we will be able to discuss their swing tendencies and needed changes. This analysis will be recorded and uploaded onto each student’s personal Trackman dashboard. This will be a “voice-recorded video analysis,” and the student will be able to refer back to this at home. This will provide an on-going reinforcement of the swing fundamentals and needed changes.
Here is a sample video: Trackman Swing Analysis
Trackman Data: On full-swing days, each student will have 20 minutes to hit shots using the Trackman. The student will work with different clubs and each shot hit will be recorded in their Trackman data. The Trackman will create a detailed PDF report that will be uploaded to their Trackman Dashboard. This report will include data from every shot hit: distance, club path, face angle, club speed, ball speed, attack angle, etc. Knowing this data will provide each student with the awareness of what their ball is doing off the clubface. And knowing the average carry distance for every club in their bag will help them lower their scores.
Each new student to the academy will be asked to complete an initial private lesson before joining the training classes. This will allow the new student and Coach Britt to get to know one another as well as develop their swing plan which will include a library of narrated swing videos via Trackman.
