Junior Coaching

Guidelines

The table below provides guidelines under which the County may accept Boys into the annual winter County Coaching programme. Successful candidates may then be invited for further more detailed coaching afterwards.

Club Junior Organisers (and any interested party) are asked to note that Cheshire has upwards of 3,000 boy junior golfers in the county and, with perhaps only 150 coaching places available, places are somewhat limited. It’s emphasised however that we do want to hear about  every  boy within the guidelines and coaching places will be spread as much as possible over all age-groups.

The Junior Golfer Report form is  key  to coaching selection. These forms must be submitted by Club Junior Organisers to either the Boys Team Manager or the County Secretary  no later than 31st August  in each year as winter coaching candidates are selected in September.

If we don’t hear about a young man, his chances of coaching selection are slim. If someone is not chosen this year, there is no reason why he may not be selected in the future. It’s a function of age and handicap progression. For this same reason, someone selected last year may not necessarily be chosen in ensuing years. The Junior Golfer Report Form gives us this relevant information.

Junior Organisers can make nominations for County Coaching by completing a Junior Golfer Report form.

Initial assessment takes place at Sandfield Driving Range  and from 2015 at Adlington Golf Centre .

The Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs are grateful to Adlington Golf Centre for permitting the use of our Junior Squad training sessions throughout 2015 and 2016.

Junior Golfer Reports

At any time the County welcomes information on the County's Junior Golfers.

A Junior Golfer Report form isprovided for Club Junior Organisers to report on the progress of promising juniors. It enables the County to assess their eligibility for Junior Coaching and/or County representation in Junior Team Matches. The County welcome and encourage all Junior Organisers to report regularly on the progress of Boys in their Club, and by working together the County and Club can strengthen their skills at Club, County and possibly Country level.

Please take time to fill in a Junior Golfer Report for your promisingJuniors. Two electronic versions of the Junior Golfer Report form are provided:
