Participants need to travel to training every day
The GGGA camp has an excellent custom training program. This training consists of 3 phases: technical, mental and physical training. 7 hours a day devoted to these three basic elements to improve the skills of the students.
Before beginning, on the first day of training a recording of each individual student is performed in order to study their movements and assign to each of them the short game and putting exercises.
The kids train in groups of 6 or 8 students, spend time working individually with the coach but also compete with other players in the group.
- Technical Training: with the help of a professional coach they will learn all the techniques, movements in all the game areas to improve the skills and development of the game.
- Physical Training: the technique is as important as the control of the body. That is why at this camp you will do physical exercise to improve your swing, prevent injuries, win balance, stability and mobility as well as gain flexibility, strength and rotational power.
- Mental Training: an excellent player not only dominates the technique and is prepared physically, but also needs a mental training. Learn about your strengths, have game and ultimately develop the mentality of a champion. A good mental preparation is what separates the good players from the best. Not only is there mental level training at the course but also exercises are performed in the classroom.
