Introduction to Junior Golf

About the Program

"The mission of SNAG Golf is to get people physically active by introducing them to golf in a fun and easy way that encourages a lifetime of positive experiences and relationships. Through JNLL, it is hoped to address the demographic, geographic, economic, education and access barriers that prevent the masses from participating in this lifetime sport." – Jack Nicklaus

We combine our golf lessons with Fundamental Movement Skills, where the main focus lies on forming a good foundation to develop a good golf swing from through working on Agility, accuracy, balance, coronation & Speed, all of which is very important in any sport.

The program is based on the LTAD development program introduced for the first time by DR Istvan Balyi.

Jack Nicklaus Backs SNAG in the USA

In 2013, a national grassroots initiative in the USA to bring grass roots golf to millions of children and adults will be spearheaded by Jack Nicklaus and SNAG Golf in conjunction with the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The Jack Nicklaus Learning Leagues (JNLL), using SNAG programming and equipment, will be rolled out in Parks and Recreation facilities in order to increase access to and engagement in the game of golf for young people and adults alike.

In an effort to be more competitive with other sports, golf will enter the team sport arena through parks and recreation facilities across the USA. JNLL will make golf and golf instruction available on a broader basis, and provide a safe, affordable, and accessible golf experience whilst developing a long-term sustainable model feeding into golf courses for future generations.

Nicklaus believes that the lack of a team element hinders the development of golf amongst kids. "The youngest shy away from golf, because there's no one to share responsibility with: It's all on their shoulders." Another barrier is golf's difficulty and its lack of easier-to-use kids' equipment. "In football, kids play with smaller footballs and shorter fields. In basketball, they start with a smaller ball and a shorter hoop. But often in golf, kids start the game with real equipment and real golf balls." Nicklaus goes on: "If adults think it's hard to connect with a tiny golf ball using a long stick, imagine how a 6-year-old feels?"

The Jack Nicklaus Learning Leagues will be separated by age category including ages 5-6, 7-8, 910 and 11-12 and special leagues, such as Active Adults. Each League will have age appropriate format and curriculum. JNLL will be conducted by parent-coaches on soccer fields and selected open space within Park and Recreation facilities around the country. These Leagues will provide quality instruction and progression for entry-level golfers to become engaged in the game of golf (in Jack's words "and make it fun") to the point where they are ready to transition to more traditional equipment at a golf course.

The mission of SNAG Golf is to get people physically active by introducing them to golf in a fun and easy way that encourages a lifetime of positive experiences and relationships. Through JNLL, it is hoped to address the demographic, geographic, economic, education and access barriers that prevent the masses from participating in this lifetime sport.

Whilst America has one of golf's greatest ever players getting behind SNAG and promoting it, SNAG in Europe is also pushing ahead to deliver golf coaching programmes to schools, groups and organisations in the inner cities to engage people of all ages and abilities and to introduce them to the game which for so long was regarded as a sport for the privileged minority.

International Golf Development is working hard to make golf more accessible to all by establishing short simple rough courses through their company European Golf. By utilising small areas of spare land, complete with realistic synthetic greens, they are helping to fulfil the longstanding vision of the ‘Father Figure' of the modern game – Sir Henry Cotton. Coupling these courses with the simple and easier to use SNAG equipment removes the frustration from the game and helps to develop the basic skills required to progress onto regular golf.

Perhaps though we should leave the final thought to Nicklaus: "There are few people in the game more traditional than I am, but I recognized long ago that our game needs change. We have been a sport that, historically, has been slow to change and adapt. Creativity, innovation, and a willingness—if not passion—for trying new things are paramount for change.
