The Kooyonga coaching team is excited to announce the introduction of Operation 36. This will be the framework for our junior golf program and consists of coaching, playing and training. Each golfer will be issued a profile in the Operation 36 Mobile App to track progress through a six level curriculum that is designed to set appropriate objectives and challenge each student towards shooting par (score of 36) or better for 9 holes.
This is an early introduction into the game and first step into developing the necessary fundamentals required to build a strong foundation for the game. Using the Operation 36, this squad will develop a good grip and setup and early swing concepts to get them hooked. This is the first stage of our long term development plan so juniors will also develop their agility, balance and coordination drills to have strong fundamental movement skills by using Titleist Performance Institute object control based tasks.
8.00am to 8.45am
2.00pm to 2.45pm
These academy classes will reinforce the fundamentals learnt in the K1 sessions. Here juniors will begin to grow their golf skills by been introduced to new shot types around the green and developing their full swing ball flight skills by using human based exercise such as balance, tempo and tension awareness exercises. The Operation 36 protocol will reinforce golf etiquette and rules to prepare juniors for on course play. An important time in the juniors physical development so additional functional strength drills are introduced for improved stability and mobility awareness and TPI sport skill games.
9.00am to 10.00am
The K3 squad will improve upon finesse golf techniques to bring them up to a more competent level. Additional skills will be learned to further build upon the understanding on how to create shots when dealing with adversity during practice and out on the course. Juniors of this age bracket will now be reinforcing speed and stamina, strength and conditioning and will also learn how to follow weekly training plans through the Operation 36 mobile app.
