You’ll get together with other beginner girls to relax and play fun games. PGA professional coaches will lead the activities and Girls Golf Cymru Ambassadors from local clubs will be on hand to help and encourage you. Any equipment you need will be provided. You’ll also have plenty of time to chat and make new friends over refreshments.

You can wear what you like as long as it’s comfy and keeps you warm. Trainers are fine for footwear.

We are currently taking expression of interests for a Level 2 course to potentially run in Wales during 2019.

The ASQ Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Golf will provide individuals with the knowledge and competence to lead the planning and delivery of coaching sessions to improving golfers. This qualification is available to individuals with an interest in golf coaching, (who meet the course entry requirements listed below), who wish to further develop their coaching knowledge and skills in the golfing arena.

NB. The PGA is currently clarifying the demand for Level 2 coaches with the governing bodies of golf. This work requires the development of detailed workforce plans that are taking time to complete effectively. Once this work is complete the PGA will be able to plan and deliver a full programme of Level 2 courses that meet the needs of the game in the UK.

Level 2 Inclusive Coaching

Course Introduction

The aim of this workshop is to extend delegates’ knowledge and skills for coaching golf to disabled participants. Critically, by equipping them with a better understanding of the specifics of visual impairments, hearing impairments, mental health issues, special educational needs and learning disabilities. This workshop also aims to provide PGA Professionals with an opportunity to have technical coaching discussions with their peers, in relation to coaching golf to physically impaired participants, via a video analysis session. It looks to reinforce the inclusive message of the previous workshop (Inclusive Golf Coaching 1), but aims to help coaches provide more inclusive sessions by aiding coaches impairment specific understanding.

 

Course Objectives

Workshop learning outcomes: By the end of the workshop, delegates will:

  • recognise and share best practice
  • understand more about specific impairments and crucially be able to interpret what this information may mean in a golf coaching context
  • be confident to deliver a more inclusive golf coaching session through their extended impairment specific knowledge
  • understand that every disabled person is an individual and it is critical that their developed impairment specific understanding still allows them to see the person before the disability
  • know where to go for further impairment specific information

 

Minimum Registration Requirements

Workshop requirements: This workshop can only be accessed by PGA Professionals who have previously attended an Inclusive Golf Coaching 1 workshop. Delegates should ideally be engaged in coaching golf to disabled people.
