An extensive amount of research is conducted of Positive development on youth today. A positive development through Golf will help a child to lead a healthy, satisfying and productive life which will further lead them to be more successful in the society.
We teach them main things which are linked through the game of Golf:
1. Interpersonal skills – Showing respect to yourself, others and your surroundings
It teaches you to show respect for others, respect for myself and respect for my surroundings. Here the coaches create opportunities for participants to play the game, learn behaviors that are reflective of respect, learn about the golf fundamentals, and appreciate the etiquette and rules of golf.
2. Self-Management skills- Keeping a positive attitude to monitor and better evaluate oneself
This is addressed by identifying something s/he is doing well regardless of the outcome and maintaining a positive attitude regardless of how s/he is playing. This will later help to monitor and better evaluate oneself.
3. Goal setting skills- Improve academic performance by setting goals
Setting goals and making them come true is what makes one successful and through golf our coaches help the kids how to set a goal and aim for it in the game which separates them from the unnecessary distraction. Research study shows that self-management strategies can be used to help improve academic performance, productivity, time on task, and to decrease problem behavior.
4. Resilience skills- Ability to move forward with challenges, problems and setbacks faced in life
Goal setting and resilience are interlinked, but resilience can be developed only when one fails and this can be done only when they develop a positive attitude towards learning the game. This also helps to gain an ability to cope with any challenges, setbacks they face in life.
