Community Coach Training

Acquire a better understanding junior golf to make a difference

The Community Golf Coach training program has been developed so that parents, club staff or active club volunteers can assist their PGA of Canada professional in the delivery of junior programming activities. The workshop is an ideal opportunity to reflect on your understanding of children, junior golf, and the environment in which children play.

Above all, the Community Golf Coach training program allows golf enthusiasts to make a difference in:

  •  Sports development and in promoting the practice of golf;
  •  Their community, at the club or in a municipality;
  •  The lives of young people;
  •  Their personal lives and the legacy they will leave for future generations.

General public workshops

This two-day workshop is primarily designed to provide community stakeholders with the skills required to work with children or teens and teach them basic golf skills. Upon completion of their training, participants will receive an NCCP coaching locker number from the Coaching Association of Canada. Louis Bourgeois is the official Learning Facilitator of the PGA of Canada in Québec.
