The Strive program was designed for junior golfers who want to improve their enjoyment and success of the game of golf in a fun and supportive environment. The program format has shown to be a proven path to success for numerous prominent junior golfers.
The program incorporates all aspects of the game from the development of optimal strength and flexibility, swing mechanicals, mental and emotional strategies, course management, tournament support and many other life skills in a variety of situations throughout the season under the guidance of a Class "A" PGA Professional with extensive experience with junior golfers.

The program maximizes the interaction and support from their coach. The season begins with a parent meeting to understand their expectations as well as a goal setting session with the student. By participating in the numerous activities during the season the coach is able to interact and observe the player in a variety of environments and situations, not just the driving range. This allows for timely adjustments throughout the season to tailor the program to the individual and their needs. Adjustments may be made to address weaknesses whether they are physical, mental, emotional or mechanical, or to work with the player to develop strategies for specific situations.

Parent meetings
Parents and coach meet at the beginning of the season to discuss any unique challenges and goals to ensure expected outcomes for the season are understood. Another session is held at the end of the season to review progress made and discuss fall season focus.

Goal Setting Session
Players and coach sit down for an inspirational outlook on the year focusing on setting goals that bring players to where they would like to be at the end of the season and how to accomplish them.

Club Fitting
As junior golfers are changing in height, physical abilities and skill level, clubs may need to be adjusted to accommodate the changes. The session with award winning Robert Penner from Ted & Dave Custom Golf, is held outdoors to analyze full ball flight in conjunction with launch monitor electronic capture data to ensure superior fittings.

Swing Coaching
From April until September students and coach meet weekly to work on swing mechanics. Instruction is customized to the need of the player and the latest in simulator technology, the Trackman 4 and MySwing 3D analyzer, are incorporated into the sessions in order to achieve the greatest benefit. Note: A choice of private or semi-private sessions may be selected however all students will received weekly private sessions during the months of July and August which can be scheduled to accommodate
tournaments and family vacations.

Tournament Scheduling
Players and Coach will review and select tournament schedules based on individual goals.
Note: Players enrolled in the program, are granted memberships into the Canadian Junior Golf
Association (CJGA), one of Canada’s premiere junior golf tours.

A Round with the Coach
During the summer months players are able to book a round of golf with the coach which provides anopportunity to identify other factors which may be affecting the players final score that may or may not be directly related to the swing mechanics.

Mental and Emotional Training Seminars
Although golf skills are typically measured by physical ability, no golfer can reach their full potential without learning how to deal with their thoughts and emotions. Three seminars are designed to create emotional stability and discover mental strategies to handle key moments in golf and in life and perform your best in any situation. The result will be lower scores, increased confidence and overall enjoyment of the game.

Team Activities
One of the advantages of the Strive program is it allows for individual growth within a success oriented team environment. Players are able to learn, practice, play and compete with like-minded players who have similar goals, many who have already experienced success. Being part of an encouraging and understanding team creates lasting friendships and bonds and contribute to an experience of fun and enjoyment.

Practice Rounds
Nine hole tee times and short game development at some of the best greens and bunkers in the area. Focus be on short game, on-course play and tournament prep (if applicable).

Champions Tour Event - Shaw Charity Classic
The team will attend the local event to watch some of the legends of golf play at a great venue. It is a fun day to experience golf at a high level and enjoy each others company.

Windup Party 
A dinner for parents and kids to enjoy each other’s company and reminisce on the year! This is always a fun time for everyone involved!
