Varsity Prep

Invitation Only Training Program

The newly redesigned 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 and also with individual one-on-one instruction. Weekly Varsity Prep classes will be focused on competition and repetition, while student’s skill development and swing projects will be reserved for their weekly private lesson.

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. 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.
  • Sports performance training – Each practice will consist of a functional golf workout component that will help students with strength, agility, swing speed, and endurance, as well as total body conditioning.
  • 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.

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.
