The Confederation of Golf in Ireland (CGI) has announced a workshop for PGA Professionals who wish to enhance their practical and theortical skills regarding coaching women and juniors. Taking place at CGI Head Quarters in Carton House, the workshop has been designed in line with research from the R&A recommending that more is done to promote family golf. According to the ESRI report (Golf in Ireland), family values really matter: "In order to be appealing to modern two-earner couples with children, golf clubs might do well to ensure that the club is not a place to escape the family, but a place that welcomes the family. Furthermore, current data suggests that golf is unlikely to thrive if it allows the current male domination of the sport to make golf less appealing to women," the report states.
The CGI Women and Juniors workshop aims to empower delegates to deliver engaging coaching sessions and create a sustainable business model through Women and Junior Golf initiatives. PGA Professionals will leave with fresh ideas of working business models and opportunities surrounding women and junior programmes. Throughout the workshop, PGA Professionals will extend their knowledge and confidence to include Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) and Trackman/Ball flight data in sessions specific to women and juniors.
Costing just €45 including lunch, the workshop also aims to provide a practical introduction to the coaching models Teaching Games for Understanding and Guided Discovery.
