The PGA of Canada, in partnership with Golf Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada, offers members access to the best instructional and coaching training in the world through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The NCCP is broken down into three streams: Community, Competition and Instruction and includes subsequent contexts that align coaching activities with specific participants and their respective stages of development.
This three-day workshop, which falls under the Instruction NCCP stream, will have you working in groups, participating in active discussions, debating and more. Participants will be introduced to the different stages of motor learning and typical errors made by beginner golfers, cause and effect of ball flight laws, key teaching practices for new golfers, and other critical instructional elements. While traditionally viewed as a workshop for Apprentices, this course is designed for any member who is teaching players that are new to the game.
In this course, you will focus on 6 contexts:
• Teaching and Learning
• Risk Management
• Making Ethical Decisions
• Analyzing Performance
• Planning a Lesson
• Managing Elements of a Golf Instruction Program
Day 1 & 3 are entirely indoors while Day 2 is primarily on the range.
