Springfield Golf & Country Club Joins the USA Junior National Golf Program
(SAN ANTONIO, Tex.) – The USA Junior National Golf Team announces its partnership with Springfield Golf & Country Club (Springfield, VA) as a brand new certified USA Junior National Team Training Center.
Beginning in April of 2016, Springfield Golf & Country Club will provide coaching and competitive opportunities to USA Junior National Team members. Four of the five USA Junior National Team programs –Developmental I and II, Future Stars, Pre-Elite – will be featured. They hope to add Elite Programming later this year.
“We are excited as an organization to have Josh and his staff conducting our program at Springfield Golf and Country Club” states Tom Relf, USA Junior Golf Team Director. “Josh, along with other certified USA Junior Golf Team coaches Tyler Bantle, Frank O’Connell and Chris Lebiedz provide the membership at Springfield Golf & Country Club with arguably one of the strongest junior golf player development coaching programs in the nation”.
Developmental I and II athletes are those who have just begun their competitive journey. Certified USA National Team Coaches will work with each participant to develop the various skills necessary to become a member of the Future Stars Team. Athletes in the developmental program are expected to compete locally in junior golf competitions. Program coaches will assist participants and their parents in choosing appropriate competitive opportunities.
Future Stars teams are for athletes age eleven and older who have displayed a passion for the game and possess experience in competitive golf events. Team members will meet two-to-three times weekly for coaching sessions led by Certified USA National Team coaches and are eligible to participate in regional training camps when space is available.
USA National Team Coaches identify prospective Pre-Elite team members based on their performance in USA National Golf Camps, high school golf competitions, or state and local junior tournaments. These players consistently score in the mid 70s to low 80s. Work ethic and attitude are also important traits. Like Future Stars, Pre-Elite juniors will meet two-to-three times per week with certified coaches and may participate in regional camps.
Selection to the Elite Team is an honor reserved for the most talented, polished, and hard-working individuals. USA National Team Coaches invite prospective Elite Team members based on their performance in USA National Golf Camps or national junior tournaments. Our Elite Team members enjoy competitive success at the local, state, and national levels. Elite Team members meet two-to-three times weekly throughout each training season, participate in Regional and National training camps, and are eligible to qualify for and compete in Regional and International Team Matches.
USA Junior National Team curriculum and world-class instruction at Springfield Golf & Country Club is an enticing combination for Middle Atlantic players seeking a structured pathway to reach their full potential in golf. USA Junior National Team members will receive customized technical, tactical, physical and mental training as they transition through the benchmarks of the USA Junior National Team curriculum.
PGA Head Golf Professional Josh Tremblay and the rest of his Professional Staff are excited to offer this program to the junior golfers at Springfield and in the region. Learn more about the USA Junior National Team, and register for the program at www.usajrgolf.com.
