Coach Training Workshops
The Adaptive Golf Academy™ Coach Training Workshop© is an interactive day of sharing knowledge and experiences between Physical/Occupational and Recreational Therapists, Golf Professionals, Teachers, volunteer/mentors and adaptive players learning best approaches and coaching skills.
Our workshop delivers a comprehensive study for new coaches to become more comfortable and confident working with individuals with different abilities or any "adaptive need." Through self-adaptation exercises, our "coaches-in-training" will gain a new perspective on what modifications they themselves need to apply and understand the why before working with program participants.
Upon completion of the workshop, graduates are recognized as trained Adaptive Golf Coaches.
