Elite Sport Elite Golf Programme
Earning college scholarships to universities in America requires dedication to both sporting and academic excellence. Normal school structure focuses the majority of time on academics and often doesnt offer time for athletes to dedicate to their chosen sport.
The Elite Sport Elite Golf Programme is designed specifically for 16 to 18 year old golfers who aspire to combine both their golf and education to earn Golf Scholarships to Universities in America or to join the professional tours after completing their schooling.
With equal time dedicated to both golf and academic development the Elite Sport Elite Golf Programme forms the structured Pathway from Junior to Elite Golfer, prepared and ready for University Scholarships and beyond.
The philosophy behind the JFGAs Triple A Golf Programmes is Personalisation, ensuring every Triple A Elite student-athlete receives everything they personally need to excel in their golf performance. To do this, it is essential that every Triple A Elite student-athlete completes a full individual assessments in Technical, Physical and Mental Performance.
The JFGA consists of a team of Technical, Physical and Mental Performance coaches, all working together and communicating under one roof, ensuring all aspects of the programme remain in sync with each other throughout the student-athletes time on the programme.
Upon arrival to the academy, Triple A Elite student-athletes undergo a Physical and Technical Assessment, utilising the most up-to-date techniques, technologies and philosophies to create a performance blueprint for the coming training year.
Modern day elite golfers are power athletes capable of creating incredible speed by utilising efficient techniques and powerful physiques to hit the ball vast distances, making it vitally important both Technical and Physical training are linked and complementing each other. Mental performance programmes tie the improved technical and physical skills together allowing for better execution in tournament conditions.
The student-athletes will continually be re-assessed throughout the year and receive programme upgrades as the year progresses.
