In-School Visits

Program Purpose

The Future Links, driven by Honda Get Linked program is an initiative to transition Golf in Schools participants to Future Links, driven by Honda ‘active’ sites across Canada.  Golf in Schools is a program, offered by Golf Canada, to all elementary and high schools in the country.  By registering for the program, schools are provided with the necessary resources (equipment, curriculum and training) which enables teachers to integrate golf into their ongoing, day to day teaching curriculum and meet the learning outcomes required by their respective Boards of Education.

In-School Visit Program

Local PGA of Canada professionals and Community Golf Coaches visit schools in their area to build on the existing Golf in Schools (GIS) programming being delivered.  Elementary schools already have the full GIS equipment package, which includes plastic irons and putters, foam balls, cones, marker flags, putting cups, make-a-hoops, surface tees, and foot-tees.  Intermediate schools have the gull GIS equipment package, which includes foam irons and putters, hard foam balls, tees and hitting mats. High schools have the full GIS equipment package, which includes irons and putters, hard foam balls, tees and hitting mats. All levels of GIS have the curriculum piece. Professionals can utilize the program materials to lead a lesson and or assist the teacher with the delivery of the program. 

In-School Visit Grant

In order to assist with the costs involved with visiting a school, Golf Canada will provide grants to PGA of Canada members.  The $150 grant helps to offset any costs to the professional for his/her time in the classroom.  Money can be spent on initiatives such as transportation, cost of professional’s teaching time, prizes for the students, in addition to any other facets that the professional would believe to be beneficial for his/her time at the school.  In order to receive the grant, PGA members must be at an active Future Links, driven by Honda site and the school visited must be a registered GIS site.
