We were very fortunate to get invited as a celebrity guest speaker by one of our students at Collingwood School in West Vancouver.
The school is located on top of the mountain with a beautiful view. We arrived on time and received our student Aiden’s warm welcome and assistance with our golf equipment. We were led to the classroom and introduced by Aiden.
The kids were so enthusiastic that almost everyone in the class raised their hand to share their golf experience. As soon as they were told they were going to hit some balls in the field they couldn’t wait to get out of the classroom.
We broke the class into 3 groups – 1st and 2nd groups formed a circle for chipping /putting to a target in the middle, while the 3rd group formed a straight line for making a full swing. We taught them how to grip, swing, chip and putt. This colourful safety kids golf starter-snag golf system really got them excited and the kids showed tremendous amounts of interest hitting the balls. Once they hit the target, they wanted more…
The session ended in 45 minutes. We were very happy to come out to offer this clinic.
Golf has the ability instill strong core values…values such as honesty, good sportsmanship, and integrity. The game relies heavily on the honor system. By keeping your own score, children learn the importance of playing with integrity. Golf powers the brain and challenges the mind in terms of strategy, coordination and concentration.
We’d be proud to be part of getting golf into the classrooms. It’s a good way to introduce golf to the youngsters.
我们将一个班分为3组 – 第一和第二组练习切杆/推杆，大家围成圆圈，目标设置于中间，而第3组形成一条直线作挥杆练习。
