As part of England Golf’s junior development initiative, The Staffordshire County Academy Programme (CAP) looks to identify junior golfers (girls and boys) with potential from across the county and help nurture them to maximise their potential and prepare them for elite development. We have 8 academy centres across the county and the programme is designed to compliment coaching that is already provided at golf clubs and facilities.
We run 2 squads at each venue – the Development Squad is for less experienced younger juniors who may not yet have a handicap but clearly have potential. The Futures Squads include juniors who have been identified as having potential as elite golfers.
We would like to expand our squads in 2013 and will be holding a series of assessment sessions to identify juniors who will be considered for the Academy Programme.
We would ideally like to see all juniors who are currently not part of the academy from the ages 7-17, and would ask you to encourage all juniors within your junior section to attend one of the assessment sessions as listed below.
- Trentham Golf Club – May 19th
- 3 Hammers Golf Complex – May 26th
- Drayton Park Golf Club – June 2nd
Each junior will need to register online through the CGP website - http://www.staffsgolfpartnership.com/
Please feel free to contact me about any aspect of the CAP programme and we very much look forward to meeting the juniors from your club at one of the assessments
