Sporting Schools Club Connect aims to enable primary schools to build on their involvement in the Sporting Schools program by establishing and building on relationships with local sporting clubs.
Successful schools will deliver an out of school hours sport program by engaging a Club Connect partner sport, of which Golf Australia is one.
The program can be delivered at school or the local golf course across four or more sessions to promote golf and life skill development for kids of all abilities. The program will provide students with a direct link to a community MyGolf program and will empower students with the confidence and skills to take the next step on their golfing journey.
