KidsPlay Plus PGAJL: Next-Level Golf Instruction for Juniors

We originally created KidsPlay Plus to transition students from starting-new training gear and practice drills to real kids golf clubs and on-course playing experience in a fun team environment. Some prior golf instruction is recommended for participation.

After the establishment of KidsPlay Plus, the national program of PGA Jr. has since been developed and taken hold. The concepts of both programs are very similar so this year Kids Play Plus will be a hybrid model referred to as “Kids Play Plus PGA Jr. League”. 

However, our in-depth skills training provided will incorporate a free coach to parent app (Operation36) that will allow the coach and parent to be interactive with the curriculum as well as a bag tag that will be upgraded as the student completes different golf related tasks. While practice is important at any level, learning to apply those skills to the course during play is huge, We teach golf not just the golf swing!

The PGA Jr. League format of team matches played with scramble formats will be incorporated so some weeks may include a head-to-head match against another PGA Jr. League, they may also include a match of “Operation36” of the junior testing their skills.

Our goals is to help juniors succeed at next-level programs like NENY PGA Junior Tour and Drive, Chip & Putt and play rounds of golf with their friends and families!

We hope to register enough juniors in the Kids Play Plus PGA Jr. League to have an “in-house” pod of 4 teams with 10 kids per team and will operate on an 8-week program from June to the end of July. Practices and matches will be Thursday and Saturday where the entire group will be attending but 2 teams will be practicing and 2 teams will be playing each time.

A similar fall session may be available based on interest.
