Getting Golf into Schools
The Department of Education and Jack Newton Junior Golf (JNJG) have formed a partnership to offer teachers and students a great opportunity to experience the sport of golf, the sport that lasts a lifetime.
JNJG has focused on and develped a training program using the MyGolf Schools Program to successfully introduce golf into schools. This initiative involves teachers undertaking a training day with a JNJG Territory Manager and being given appropriate resources to add a golf program to their regular curriculum. Schools are able to purchase all necessary program equipment at a reduced rate through JNJG to implement the program.
Introduction to golf programs delivered at primary and secondary school level is driven through JNJG partnerships with the Primary Schools Sports Association, the Combined High Schools Sports Association, Schools Sport Australia, the Premier Sporting Challenge and the Active After-school Communities programs. These programs are designed to expose young children to the benefits and opportunities of the game of golf. All programs are designed to encourage children and parents to develop their golf through club cadet and junior programs.
