High School Prep

Elite Invitation Only Training Program

The High School Prep program is designed for the experienced junior golfer. This invitation-only program is open to standout players who are interested in taking their game to a more competitive level. Participants in High School Prep are junior golfers who have a desire to play at a high level and are dedicated to improvement. These golfers are well on their way toward understanding their abilities and what it takes to achieve their individual goals. Students will gain the knowledge and ability to practice efficiently, and effectively evaluate their experiences in order to maximize their time and effort.

This program will provide students with:

  • Productive practice techniques – Students will learn how to plan practice sessions in order to achieve specific goals and how to effectively utilize training tools and resources to accurately measure progress and success.
  • Greater understanding of their emotions and mental strength – Students will be taught strategies for accepting and embracing the difficulties and frustrations that often accompany learning.
  • Ball-flight comprehension – Students will learn the importance of shaping golf shots and how to create shots with varied shapes and trajectories.
  • Advanced swing analysis – Instructors will work with students to develop individual swing projects that are customized to the student’s biomechanics, and students will learn how to effectively practice these new movement patterns and understand their progression.

Our staff has created a document (below) to assist families in deciding on a tournament schedule for their junior golfer. It’s never too early to start planning for the spring, summer and fall. Illinois Junior Golf Association (IJGA) registration opened February 2, 2021 to certain players. 

The quantity of events you might play in is something that differs from player to player, depending on their experience and comfort level, so don’t feel like you have to follow our recommendations exactly.  Our advice for High School Prep students is highlighted in yellow. If you would like to discuss this more in detail, please contact your TGP coach or email us at info@thegolfpractice.com
