Coaches in the Community Sport stream typically become involved on a voluntary basis for various reasons. They tend to work with participants of all ages who are new to the game of golf. The focus of Community Sport coaches is to introduce new athletes to the game or to continue athlete’s participation in the sport. The role of the coach is to ensure a fun and safe environment and to teach the development of some of the FUNdamentals and Active for Life stage skills and abilities for participants.
