(JUPITER, FL) – All across the country and around the world, Little Golf T.R.A.I.N. is signing up PGA and LPGA Teaching Professionals and pre-school educators as Certified Conductors (instructors) to introduce children ages 2-5 to the game of golf. It's a great way to begin a grow-the-game program at your facility or enhance your existing junior golf program.
PGA Professionals can earn three Education Credits when they complete the Little Golf T.R.A.I.N. online certification program, and LPGA Professionals can earn 4 CU Credits when they become Certified Conductors.
Founder Patricia Donnelly, PhD, and Co-Founder Nicole Weller, PGA/LPGA, envision Little Golf T.R.A.I.N. as an age-appropriate, developmentally correct way to introduce very young children, ages 2-5, to golf before they become committed to other sports such as soccer, tennis and swimming. They are targeting PGA and LPGA Teaching Professionals as well as pre-school educators. To schedule one-on-one interviews with Dr. Donnelly and Ms. Weller, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Parents and coaches want our youngest golfers to truly enjoy the game and learn the correct fundamentals while having fun,” says Dr. Donnelly, a world-renowned educational sport psychotherapist. “We have studied what is fun for a child aged 2-5 and have made it an integral part of the program. That’s why we developed the T.R.A.I.N. approach, based on teaching through play.” Says Weller, Head Teaching Professional at The Landings Club, in Savannah, GA.: “Our program is rooted in early-childhood, age-appropriate techniques and is designed to foster joy in learning about the game. Our goal is to certify golf professionals and pre-school educators around the world so they can introduce children to golf in an age-appropriate way and at the same time grow their own business.”
