Overview

  • Training: 15 h / week
  • English Classes: Yes

It’s a serious and professional academy aimed exclusively at young people who really take their golf seriously and want to do some intensive training to improve their level.

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 has an excellent team of professionals who develop training programmes tailored specifically to each student’s aims and requirements.

Apart from the golf coaches, the academy has a sports director, fitness instructor, nutritionist and a sports psychologist, so participants will not only improve their golf technique but will also benefit from a comprehensive learning experience and personal and professional development.

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.
