Positive Values
  • Professional coaching programme

  • Jason Floyd is the technical director

  • Academy has high technology to design a programme personalised to each student

Negative Values
  • Students have to travel to the sports ground each day

  • Price

  • A little isolated - students need to take a bus to get to the various sites

Its advanced technology, the professionalism of its team, the magnificent facilities and wonderful geographical location make it one of the best options for a long term training programme where your son or daughter can work on perfecting their technique and develop as a sports person who can reach their maximum potential as a golfer.

There are two programmes available: one which enables participants to continue their academic studies alongside their golf training and another comprising the golf coaching only.

In the first programme, the Junior Course, the participants are enrolled into an academic programme at the Colegio Internacional de Sotogrande (Sotogrande International School). They stay at the college residence and in the afternoons attend their academy training sessions.

In the second, the Elite Programme, students don’t have school lessons, therefore they attend golf coaching in the morning and in the afternoon do further practice. They are accommodated in the hotel located two minutes’ walk away from the academy.

 

The academy uses the latest technology in its coaching methods and also has a mobile application, comprising a platform where the progress of each player is recorded, so their parents can see photos and videos of the activities their children are taking part in to improve their game.

*All the golf coaches at the academy are English speakers so it is recommended that the students enrolling on to this course should have at least an intermediate level of English so they can understand the instructions given during the training sessions.

*Available Courses:

  • Annual Junior Course (September-June): Golf coaching + international academic study (optional) + full board accommodation for boys and girls from 10 to 17 years.
  • Annual Elite Course for boys and girls from 17 to 23 years. Golf coaching + full board accommodation.
  • Courses of varying duration (from two weeks) based on the structure of the annual programme. If you want more information about these courses, please contact us.

*It is also possible to arrange for a course with academy training only (without accommodation).

Once a week, participants receive a visit from the sports psychologist.

Training groups can have up to 6 students but each student receives personalised attention tailored to their level and the areas they want to work on. At various times during the week, participants have individual training with the coach assigned to them, who will guide them through the whole programme.

Participants in the Junior programme (attending school) train every afternoon from Monday to Friday from 4.30pm to 7.30pm as well as two Saturday mornings per month. Students on the Elite programme train in the mornings and practise in the afternoons.

The annual coaching programme is divided into a number of stages:

ASSESSMENT STAGE

Every student begins with a preliminary assessment stage where every aspect of their game will be examined and a tailored training plan created adapted to their objectives and requirements.

ASSIMILATION OF CONCEPTS AND ELIMINATION OF PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS

During this stage the particular areas that the student needs to work on will be identified and examined in order to understand better the causes of these. In line with this a general improvement plan will be developed. Students will also work on reducing their physical limitations.

STRENGTHENING AND DEVELOPMENT STAGE

Once areas of weaknesses and physical limitations have been improved, work will then start on attaining the level of fitness required by the sport as well as on developing new habits and incorporating these into the golfer’s swing.

ASSESSMENT STAGE

In this phase, coaches work on the power of the turn and the speed and patterns of movement required to increase the golfer’s strength. Once they have acquired the power, they work on building speed into the patterns of movement.

SPECIFIC STAGE

Once the player has attained improvements in their power and speed, the following step is to implement this into their swing. With the combination of these improvements in their technique and confidence the player will be ready for competition.

PERFECTING AND MAINTENANCE STAGE

This is about learning to take the right action at the right time and maintaining a high level of play consistently, thus becoming a complete golfer.

TOURNAMENTS

The JFGA Junior Tour, a tournament organised by the academy, has been created to provide participants with a magnificent competitive experience.

During the year a total of 18 tournaments are held in the towns of La Reserva, Valderrama, San Roque and Aloha, among others. In these tournaments there are young golfers from more than 20 countries and the event is a wonderful learning experience for the students.

Jason Floyd Golf Academy

There is an opportunity for the young people to continue their academic study while on the golf programme by enrolling in the excellent Colegio Internacional de Sotogrande (Sotogrande International School), located 25 minutes away from the academy. All classes are delivered in English and offer study programmes from ESO to baccalaureate, including a special programme for elite sports students.

Depending on the age and objectives of each student, the school will recommend the study programme which is considered most appropriate in each case and will provide all the guidance necessary.
