Sporting Schools

Schools can book a MyGolf Primary or Secondary program through Sporting Schools. Sporting Schools grants are offered every school term and the funds can be used by schools to run teacher-delivered programs or engage external coaches (accredited PGA Professionals or Community Instructors), purchase equipment, complete online teacher training and to visit local sporting clubs and facilities. If schools register their interest in golf when applying for a Sporting Schools grant and are successful in gaining funding, your state/territory program coordinator will make contact to assist you with the booking process. The structure and number of sessions offered through Sporting Schools can be flexible depending on the type of programs schools would like to deliver.
