National Golf in Schools Program



The National Golf in Schools Program has been developed to deliver Physical Education learning outcomes through the sport of golf. The initial element of the program is focused on assisting elementary school teachers (specialists and non-specialists) with and without a background in golf, to plan and deliver quality learning experiences using golf as the vehicle. Developed by the Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada) in partnership with Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada, the learning resource was designed to meet the learning outcomes of elementary schools curriculum across Canada.

The National Golf in Schools Program will:
  • Help students develop physical literacy skills that are necessary to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to lead healthy, active lives and enjoy success in all levels of sport participation.
  • Develop student appreciation of the positive values and life skills associated with the game and to provide students with the opportunity to learn them. 
  • Introduce golf in a developmentally appropriate manner, consistent with national and provincial standards for Physical Education. 
  • Develop student appreciation of the positive values and life skills associated with the game and to provide students with the opportunity to learn them.

Interested in giving back to your community? Adopt a school! With tightening education budgets, it is a reality that not all schools will be able to afford this program within their budgets. We are offering the ‘adopt a school’ initiative to encourage individuals, groups of individuals, or businesses to support the program by funding the cost of the NGIS program package for a school.
