For thousands of Canadian children, back to school also means back to golf!
Every year, golf is being introduced to thousands of elementary school children via the National Golf in Schools program. Endorsed by PHE Canada, the National Golf in Schools program is a fundamental part of Golf Canada's plan to grow golf in Canada.
Golf is the number one participation sport in Canada. It's a game enjoyed by people of all ages, yet only l% of children in elementary schools get the opportunity to play. You can be a part of making a difference by participating in the "Adopt a School" initiative. Sponsor a school of your choice, if you are a private donor you can even receive a tax receipt for doing so.
The National Golf in Schools program (NGIS) includes a "best in class" learning resource as well as child friendly golf specific equipment. The package comes at a cost of $475 inclusive of shipping. With tightening education budgets, it is a reality that not all schools will be able to afford this program within their budgets. We are offering the ‘adopt a school’ initiative to encourage individuals, groups of individuals, or businesses to support the program by funding the cost of the NGIS program package for a school.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to your support in helping us get golf into schools!
