Varsity Prep

Invitation Only Training Program

The Varsity Prep program is aimed for high school students that share a love of golf. This invitation-only program is for players who have a desire to play competitively, be serious about learning, but might not have the time to fully commit to golf.

The flexible structure of Varsity Prep allows our students to improve their golf game in a competitive group environment. Varsity Prep students will participate in a weekly Trackman Simulator Golf League and receive one hour of private instruction each week.

Trackman Simulator League – Monday Nights
This element of the Varsity Prep program is intended to provide students with valuable on course playing experience using our state-of-the-art Trackman Simulators. Students will compete in a season long points race and play against their peers in a fun and competitive environment.

 

This program will provide students with:

  • 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.
  • 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. This is done with mindfulness, a training that leads to being present to our experiences more often and cultivating the capacity to let go of disappointments, frustrations, anger and anxiety, more quickly.
  • Monitoring progress – All too often, good students will have a tendency to over-correct a swing concept or have technique that begins to shift in a bad direction without the player being aware. This program will equip students with the necessary mental resources to notice these clues and fix them before harm is done.

Our staff has created a document (below) to assist families in deciding on a tournament schedule for their junior golfer.

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 Varsity Prep students is highlighted in yellow.
