Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can I keep my kids together on the same day/time, even though they are different ages?

Absolutely! We respect that it is a challenge to coordinate multiple kids with multiple schedules. We will do our best to keep families together.

How do you accommodate Rain cancellations?

I have scheduled the weeks of August 24, 31 and September 7 for rain dates. I will add additional “rain dates” as required.

How do you accommodate Family Holidays and other reasons for missed sessions?

Sessions that occur between June 29 and August 14 (not cancelled because of rain) can use their Summer Series Pass to book a makeup session.    Please follow the links to the Tutorial Section to learn how.

What's New for the 2020 Junior Summer Series?

Last season, I indicated that there would be some significant changes to the Junior Program. The significant changes include the following:

1st Major Change: This season I plan to include exercises as a part of the regular curriculum

Rationale: Most young athletes are not aware of correct posture and balance; therefore, carefully selected functional activities will complement the necessary skills to play Golf safely and efficiently. 

2nd Major Change: Greater emphasis on “Best Behaviour” – Helping our Next Generation of Golfers Become Good Golf Citizens

Rationale: Most Golfers have never been mentored adequately as players; consequently, poor behaviour on the course has become the norm. By including messaging about Respect, Safety, Speed of Play, and the Basic Rules of Golf, we will help our developing golfers become Good Golf Citizens.  

3rd Major Change: Specific Sessions Dedicated to On Course Play

Rationale: Instruction and Play are symbiotic components of active learning. Let’s face it, everyone wants to play more, and I am happy to offer this unique component to our Program.  

Do my kids require additional PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)?

To be on the safe side, I require that every participant bring sanitizer and a facial mask to each session. I strongly recommend that children wear a mask when entering the building to use the washroom.

What happens if it looks like rain on the day of my scheduled session?

For the sake of simplicity, unless otherwise told, sessions will continue as per the schedule. All session cancellations will occur well in advance of a scheduled “session.”

How do you accommodate a statutory Holiday?

  • Wednesday, July 1 Classes (Canada Day) – Scheduled for Wednesday, September 3 
  • Monday, August 3rd Classes (Simcoe Day) – Scheduled for Monday, August 31
