What is Golfikids?
Golfikids is a Sporting Dreams School Sports Program and it provides children with a fun and safe introduction to the skills required in Golf. The program aims to give children a “WOW, that was an amazing experience, can we do it again?“.
We have split the program into 3 stages:
- Stage 1: Putting Skills
- Stage 2: Chipping Skills
- Stage 3: Fun Games & Competitions
Is Golf Safe?
Yes. We use foam tennis balls and velcro tennis balls and focus on developing the fundamental skills.
The equipment we use has been specifically designed to make the game easier for children to learn.
Our staff use a firm but fair coaching style and start off all the lessons by reinforcing what we expect in terms of behaviour, listening skills, following instructions and explaining the strategies we use to get the children’s attention.
Please take a look at our history and about us page, where you can read a little about our coaching methodology, our approach and our use of discipline. These are vitally important to create and maintain a fun, safe and efficient learning environment for the children.
What skills do the children develop?
We always start each lesson explaining the safety issues when swinging a golf club. Children will be taught basic aiming skills as well as working on their striking skills. Children will develop the following;
- How to use a putter & putt from various distances
- How to use a golf club to chip a ball close to the hole
- Develop concentration skills
- Developing Self-esteem
- Building Confidence
- Improving Balance
- Developing Motor skills
- Improving reactions and response time
- Developing eye-hand and feet coordination
- The program can also help children to understand the importance of discipline and listening skills which are important to maintain a safe environment.
