Golf Australia and the PGA are excited to be able to offer an introduction to the MyGolf program through the newly created Australian Sports Commission’s Sporting Schools program. Sporting Schools is a Federal Government initiative that will engage more than 850,000 children across Australia in what will be the country’s largest school-based participation programme. The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) has partnered with 32 national sporting organisations (NSOs) to offer sporting programmes to children before, during or after school.
Within the MyGolf Sporting Schools program we aim to introduce children to the game of Golf through fun, engaging and challenging games and activities that are easily suited and adapted for a range of age groups and skill levels within the school environment. The MyGolf Sporting Schools program is designed to increase participation and engagement in Golf by children by providing a quality introduction to the game. The Program runs for 4 weeks in school program with an optional 5th week at a local Golf Club or Facility to further enhance the children’s experience.
Local Golf Clubs are encouraged to get involved by registering to provide community instructors to deliver the program to their local schools or either arrange the school visit to the club or provide information to the school regarding how to continue be a part of the MyGolf program beyond Sporting Schools.
