Full Time Junior School
The Full-Time Junior Program at Premier Golf Academy is for juniors that want to be the best, train like the professionals, and prepare for college or professional golf careers. There is no better place and no better program for your child to prepare for the future. Juniors coming through our program have great success. Our students excel and win at every level from high school to university and professional golf.
At Premier Golf Academy we believe in the holistic approach with our students. The holistic approach looks at all aspects of the individual—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. The interaction between a coach and an athlete is a very important relationship. When we are involved as a coach in an athlete’s life, we are not just agreeing to instruct the athlete or make them faster, stronger, and play better. We are also agreeing to build trust, care about their hardships, help them overcome challenges and ultimately take an interest in them as a person as well as an athlete.
The starting point in this process for each student is an in depth evaluation. Our whole team is involved to evaluate the student technically, physically, and mentally to determine strengths and weakness. We then create a custom improvement plan for each student that includes private, small group, and classroom training. Students are tracked weekly for performance and improvement and adjustments to their plan are made as they progress.
During the week our Full-Time students have the unique advantage of attending Tri City Christian School for their academic program, followed by spending the remaining portion of their day training with our highly skilled and experienced coaching team. On the weekends students can join our traveling team for tournament competitions or spend the time playing and training at our facilities.

Personal development activities improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital, enhance the quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations. Our personal development frameworks include setting goals or benchmarks that define the end-points, strategies and plans for reaching goals, measurement and assessment of our progress, levels or stages that define milestones along a development path, and a feedback system to provide information on changes.
Our athletes are trained to out think their opponents on the golf course. Through regular classroom learning and mental development exercises, we teach our students to overcome mental barriers, take their practice game to tournaments, and boost their golf confidence. Mental Development, is what allows the mind and body to work together in perfect synchrony; it’s what helps athletes play with confidence, focus, motivation, and resiliency while minimizing nerves and anxiety.
Our athletes learn to think well and order their habits of mind as a competitive athlete at an early age. We establish rituals and routines early in their life that create comfort and peace of mind during pressure-filled situations. We use a combination of classroom time, individual one-on-one coaching and advanced strategies to empower each athlete to leverage the capabilities of his subconscious mind in commanding consistent high performance. For our young athletes, we also focus on identity and character formation, where self-discipline, confidence and poise are the deliverables. This facet of our system creates a strong competitive advantage for our athletes.
Course Management – Strategy
Every golf decision involves a trade-off between risk and reward. Understanding these risks and rewards is the key to creating the best strategy for each golf course and condition we face. We teach our students these techniques and strategies through classroom lessons and on course instructions. Students use these lessons for creating plans for their tournament rounds and practice.
Expert-level performance is primarily the result of expert-level practice NOT due to innate talent. Teaching our students how to practice like an expert is one of the most important skills they will learn and vital to them reaching their full potential. Students practice is monitored and recorded weekly to ensure students are utilizing their practice time to achieve maximum results.

Physical training is preparation for competition, and must be rigorous and strenuous, while instilling a passion for training in the younger athlete. The “stress” applied in training is designed to produce powerful adaptations in each athlete that lead to predictable growth in their capacity to produce high performance, both on and off the field of play. Our training breeds the “total athlete”, with strength, power, flexibility and endurance tailored to essential human movements, and the unique demands of golf. As a result, our athletes are confident, poised and resilient, and continually look for opportunities to compete and win under any conditions.
As important to athlete development as their performance training and physical preparation, nutrition is the foundation of all strength, performance, and recovery. We teach and coach our athletes early and often on how to optimize their intake, quality, and supplementation to feed their bodies and minds for high performance. We provide meal plans, shopping guides, meal preparation and even delivery for those clients wanting the very best for their quest to optimize their health, wellness and performance.
The athlete that recovers the fastest is always the best athlete. We coach our athletes on how to properly and prudently integrate recovery protocols ranging from sleep quality, breathing and meditation, infrared sauna, cryotherapy, stretching and soft tissue work,. With our focus developing elite-level youth athletes, we take great pride in helping our clients and their families cut through all the hype of various modalities to use that which is most efficacious and beneficial. We also have a strong network of sports medicine professionals in the event of pain, injury and rehabilitation needs that may arise.
