Pioneer Troupe Junior Lesson Program

The Calgary Elks Lodge & Golf Club Pioneer Troupe Junior Program is an introduction to the game of golf, for non-member. Each troupe will be made up of three age-appropriate golf development levels that golf instructors will teach and guide juniors through. Juniors will learn important golf skills and techniques, as well as leadership, sportsmanship and etiquette.

During your child’s formative years of golf, the emphasis will be on physical literacy. Time will be spent learning the ABC’S of athleticism (agility, balance, co-ordination and speed) allowing the junior to have control of their own bodies. For this reason, your child may take part in exercises and drills that may seem non-relevant to golf, but are in fact supporting their development. Games and other sports educate your child’s ability to throw a ball, (basic hitting action) catching a ball correctly (hand eye co-ordination) and running (dynamic balance).

There will be two 75-minute classes in consecutive weeks. Maximum of 8 per class. Classes will be held on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning May 14 and ending May 22. The program cost is $60 per junior. Payment must be received in full before the first class. Payment can be made in the Golf Shop any time before commencement of the sessions. Spaces are limited to the first six registrants. Unfortunately, there are no alternative dates if a junior misses a lesson.
