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.

null

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.

null

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.

null

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.

null

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.

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.

null

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.

POD COACHING MODEL

In pursuit of performance excellence,IJGA adopted a collaborative coaching model or the POD Concept. This model creates an interdependent team atmosphere whereby students are exposed to a broader array of coaching skills, strengths, and expertise.

Learn more about how IJGA coaches look at and assess all areas that affect human performance including technical, physical, mental, emotional, social and strategic abilities in the Admissions Guide.

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, 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

Golfers are welcome to join the IJGA Weekly Program for any number of weeks, year round. Players will train under the same method as our Academy student-athletes. Download the Admissions Guide for more information.
