MyGolf School Programs Information
MyGolf School Program
The MyGolf School program is intended to be delivered by teachers to students in grades 3-6 in Primary School and grades 7-10 in Secondary School. The 5-session school based program introduces students to the game of golf in a simple manner that is fun and engaging.
The program is designed to ensure teachers meet learning outcomes and can align the activities with curriculum requirements. To ensure this, resource manuals containing grade specific lesson plans with curriculum aligned learning intentions, band summaries and focus questions have been created for each session.
Schools that choose to deliver a MyGolf School program simply need to register a teacher to become a MyGolf School Ambassador (register here) to have access to our new resources manuals and interactive resource app. The resources contain easy to read game cards, curriculum aligned lesson plans and instructional teaching points for the delivering a quality session.
