Are you thinking about getting your child interested in golf and getting them some lessons?
Well before you do Shaundevenneygolf.com would like you to ask yourself a few questions
- Which golf school or coach should I choose?
- Will they have fun, enjoy themselves and do things that make them feel good?
- How many balls will my child be hitting repetitively?
- How should I help my child learn the game as a parent?
Here at Shaundevenneygolf.com it is one of our key aims to introduce juniors to the game of golf and help them develop and be the best players they can be. Shaun has been active in introducing beginners to the game through xtreme golf coaching at schools around the province and through coaching sessions at Roe Park.
If you look back to when you were a kid, like me, life was very different. You probably played outside with your friends, running, jumping, climbing throwing and doing all things that kids do. We used to play all sports during the summer, whatever was on TV, the cricket, Wimbledon, american football, baseball, football, and of course the british open, we would then get together and play that sport. Luckily our parents got involved and one of them was a grounds man for the local cricket club and he used to cut out a wicket during the cricket, and of course a small green after the open with a hole cut in it. Others used to paint a small tennis court on a car park, and we used to play after Wimbledon. The world cup used to bring everyone out to play football and little did I know that all these different activities helped me become a better golfer. Unfortunately todays kids are growing up in very different times, mobile phones, Xbox's, tablets and video games mean that the children are no longer learning the basic movements and learning skills that would help them be a successful athletic.
