An Individual Approach

Student-athletes at IJGA Bishops Gate don’t just join a program or fit in to a system. A program is built uniquely for each individual based on their goals, aspirations, tournament schedule, strengths and identified areas of improvement.

In an effort to further promote an individualized approach, we introduced the POD coaching model. This model consists of a POD leader with extensive experience and training in junior golf development, directing a POD of senior coaches and students. The POD leader oversees all aspects of the student development from assessments, creating the student blueprint to monitoring and reporting on progress throughout the year.

The IJGA Bishops Gate facility is comprised of three practice zones, and each zone includes an area to practice long game, short game and putting. Within the zones, the coach can set up training for technical practice or preparation for competition to ensure that each student is working on a periodized training program.

This model accomplished the following:

  • It provides a consistently high level of coaching to avoid any student being left behind.
  • It allows for a strategically planned tournament schedule for each individual.
  • It allows for a more individual training schedule because students have flexibility within the POD to work on all aspects of their game.
  • It creates an interdependent coaching team that allows students to learn from more than just one coach and enables students to tap into the expertise of different coaches.

Besides the clear advantages of the new POD model, academy students also have access seven days a week to the challenging training course at IJGA Bishops Gate.

Creating a sense of autonomy and self-sufficiency through great coaching is what gives our students the best tools and preparation for their college careers and beyond.

Golf Philosophy

PHILOSOPHY

We provide the tools and environment to help our students become the best they can be.
We provide an individualized program blending a data and technology-driven approach with an artistic coaching style. This is based on proven research into the training protocols of elite athletes.
We produce well rounded individuals who are capable of performing to the highest level their goals and aspirations dictate.

IJGA Golf Methodology

METHODOLOGY

The coaching approach is interdependent, innovative and individual.
Using the POD system, a team of coaches work with a group of students, to allow more individualization in practice and in competition.
This also exposes students to more expertise and a variety of coaching skills and experiences.
Technology plays a key role in providing accurate training blueprints.

Golf Assessments

ASSESSMENTS

Without an accurate gauge of where a student-athlete is in all areas of athletic development – functional strength & conditioning, technical skill, mental strength, course strategy and personal growth – it is impossible to provide the right plan for their development. Utilizing the best technological diagnostic tools, combined with many year’s experience, IJGA students are assessed in all areas throughout the year.

IJGA Golf Blueprints

BLUEPRINTS

Using the assessment data, an individualized improvement plan or blueprint is created for each student with clear and measurable process goals in all areas of training.
Outcomes and goals are easy to set, but the blueprint provides the roadmap or the how to achieve those goals.
Blueprints are regularly monitored and adjusted based on progress and development.

Golf training program

TRAINING PROGRAM

The training program includes physical training – functional strength and conditioning, mental performance training, technical skills training to build mechanics, performance into competition, on course strategy, training and tournament competition. The ongoing performance cycle is assess – train – compete – evaluate.

Golf tournament strategy

TOURNAMENT STRATEGY

Tournaments provide the competitive environment to test students’ skills. However, it is important to build the right schedule based on age, ability, goals and objectives. Having a mix of tournaments that provide different levels of difficulty is an excellent way to gain experience, be challenged and to build confidence.

IJGA Bishops Gate Strength and Conditioning

STRENGTH + CONDITIONING

A junior golfer’s functional strength and conditioning is vital to their success on and off the course. For endurance, injury prevention and to promote peak performance, strength and conditioning is a core part of the golf program at IJGA.

IJGA mental performance

MENTAL PERFORMANCE

IJGA places a strong emphasis on building mental skills. From creating clear and compelling process goals, learning to focus on the things they can control and developing on course skills to promote grit and perseverance – the mental performance program will help each athlete manage their own tendencies and become stronger mentally.

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION PROGRAM

Welcome to the Community!

IJGA recommends that every new student-athlete join our Orientation Program before each fall semester begins. The program is designed primarily to help students get a head start with English language before the academic school year begins, and to take them through an assessment and blueprinting process.

The second aspect of the role of orientation is acclimating students to their new environment. Orientation allows students to get their bearings in their new home. Through guided tours of Montverde Academy, Heritage Academy and their campuses, orientation provides a safe avenue for new students to find their way around. By moving on campus before classes start, the new students are able to learn the ropes and not seem so green by the time the academic and golf training year begins.

WEEKLY PROGRAM

Student-athletes are welcome to join the IGA Weekly program for any number of weeks, year round. Players will train under the same method as our Academy students. Download the Admissions Guide for more information.
