2017 National Coaching Certification Program Workshop Schedule

The PGA of Canada’s 2017 National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Workshop Schedule is now available with over 50 workshops available across the country to all members and Candidates for Membership (CFMs).

PGA of Canada Class “A” Members are reminded about $500 professional development bursaries available to those who participate in an optional NCCP workshop and that all members attending a PGA of Canada NCCP workshop will receive a tax receipt for their registration.

This year’s schedule is highlighted by the newest workshop recently developed by the PGA and the first time it will officially be unveiled the membership.

The suite of workshops includes:

    Instructor of Advanced Golfers—A workshop like non-other,  designed as a two day case study workshop to have a hands-on approach to the club golfer with a high-skill set who is focused on improving his or her technical skills. Liam Muckow from The Golf Lab and Glenn Cundari, Technical Director with the PGA will conduct the two-day interactive case study workshop based on a real club level advanced golfer.
    Length: 2 days
    Cost: $600 plus tax

    Coach of New Competitors—The three-day workshop is targeted for coaches working with young athletes in the Introduction to Competition and Learn to Compete stages of LTPD. If your facility looks to become a National Junior Golf Development Centre (NJGDC) in 2017, you will need to attend training this year.
    Length: 3 days
    Cost: $750 plus tax

    Equipment Fitting Workshop—Developed by world-renowned leader in equipment fitting Derek Murray from ForeGolf in Ireland. The full-day workshop (with a half day doing outdoors and hands-on fitting with golfers) includes an array of group work, outdoor club fitting, individual self-discovery learning, sharing experiences, debate and outdoor practical equipment fitting work.

Participants will be introduced to stages of motor learning and typical errors in these stages for a beginner golfer, cause and effect of ball flight laws, key teaching practices for a beginner golfer and much more.
