Our Strategy to create ELITE Golfers
Our unique development strategy helps to develop and target our junior golfers as they progress in their journeys. Our program starts at an Experimental level to introduce the game in a fun interactive setting. The next level is our Foundational Program to focus on playing on-course to help build the skillsets for successful golf. Our Feeder Program prepares the players for on-course management and learning to practice with a purpose. Finally our ELITE Program is positioned for competitive high school golfers with aspirations to play at the college ranks.
ELITE Golf Program
The ELITE Program is focused on up to 20 exceptional players who have aspirations to play high school golf and beyond competitively. We focus on playing under pressure and in competitive context and state tournaments. Each player is coached individually with a mix of group and 1 on 1 sessions to address individual goals. Personal strength, speed and mobility training is required and a committed attitude to practice and hard work. This is a 10 month program that runs from January through October. All ELITE team members receive a personalized bag and Scott Yopchick Golf Academy team gear. Cost is $3000 per player.
Feeder Golf Program
The Feeder Program is designed to continue the development from the Foundational Program. This 6 month program runs from May through October and has up to 30 players. Players are expected to be ready for tournament play and coaching is targeted to help players practice with purpose. Team receives an SY hat and play interplay tournaments against neighboring clubs. Cost is $1500 per player.
