Rising Stars School Programme
Presently in the school environment there is a distinct lack of opportunity for children to engage in an individual life long sport. LDgolf's rising stars schools program changes all this.
The programme aims to give a fun introduction to the game, using modified equipment, games and activities, suitable to both indoor and outdoor use in a fun, safe manner. The emphasis of the instruction is "simplicity" with the focus being on propreceptive, visual and auditory feedback with specific word cues to ensure maximum results with minimum instruction.
Liam has used his holistic approach to the game, honed in over a decade working in the area of junior golf development, to develop a detailed curriculum that encompasses everything that is good about the game of golf including:
Motor skills- an introduction to the basic skills of the game including putting, chipping, pitching & full swing.
Core life skills- We take a deeper look at life skills such as honesty, integrity & respect & their role in life as well as the game of golf.
Physical intelligence- Emphasis on the development of fundamental movement skills.
Emotional intelligence- Development of golf specific coping strategies that can be implemented in facing issues in everyday life.
Cognitive awareness- Using guided discovery tasks to face and overcome specific golf related tasks.
Cross curricular activities- Incorporating age specific lesson plans that help target areas such as numeracy skills, spatial awareness, etc.
