Leon has just become the first kids coach in Australia to undertake and complete the U.S. Kids Golf Level 2 Certification and Star Program Training.
The 4 day immersive course takes place at the U.S. Kids Golf Academy, Southern Pines, North Carolina. Known as their “Living Laboratory”, whereby best practices in coaching golf to children are tested and implemented.
“I’ve taken so much out of this course. I’ve been coaching kids for 17 years and yet i’ve absorbed so much new knowledge and learned new practices. I’m excited to bring all this back home to our Academy at Bayview”, says, Leon.
The course is available to Level 1 certified coaches and dives deep into understanding various personalities in younger ages, the learning curriculum and tools to keep kids enjoying learning golf.
“I spent hours out coaching the kids during the 4 days which i loved. The facilities at the USKG Academy are second to none”, says Leon.
