Tips for Parents

To start, you should be commended for taking a very important first step towards ensuring your son or daughter’s experience in golf is a positive one. As a parent, coach, or teacher you play a very important role in terms of the types of experiences that your child will experience in this great game.

The topics that we have selected for this section are by no means the finite list of what a parent needs to know when getting their child involved in golf. This section of the web site will continue to expand as more materials are developed.

The content of this Tips for Parents section is the collaboration of a variety of expertise. We would like to acknowledge the Coaching Association and their document entitled “Straight Talk about Children and Sport”, Sport Canada, and Golf Canada High Performance staff for their contributions.

If you have other questions or would like to see other areas discussed in this context please contact us.
