All students will be given a complete understanding of their swing and what makes it function consistently. Through this process the student will be empowered to become their own best coach and develop an understanding of their mechanics. Each student will be given an individualized program for improvement that matches their physical makeup and maximizes long term results.
Fitness and Nutrition
Students will be given individually designed fitness and nutrition plans to optimize golf performance and promote a healthy life style by our TPI certified instructors.
Sports Psychology, Quality Practice and Strategy
Students will be provided with coaching on managing their emotions, dealing with success and failure, carrying themselves in a professional manner and instructed on training with a purpose and how to structure their practice sessions.
The academy will provide certified club fitters and the latest custom fitting equipment. Properly fitted equipment will give our students the best opportunity to maximize their potential and shoot low scores. The ability of our coaches to know the students program for long term improvement allows us to fit the golfer for where they are going and not just the here and now.
All academy staff will provide mentoring to all of our students and be available by email and phone contact on a regular basis. Our goal is to prepare our clients for life as a high functioning student athlete.
Academy staff will aid all students in contacting and marketing themselves to potential college programs. The staff members have existing relationships with many of the most prestigious collegiate golf programs in the country. This service will include preparing introductory letters and building a swing video for college coaches. Academy staff will also aid students in preparing for the challenges of college life and how to prioritize their time to be outstanding student athletes.
