Golf in Schools Program
GIS – High School Program
The Golf in Schools – Grades 9-12 Program was created by Golf Canada in partnership with PGA of Canada and Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada). This resource will help physical education teachers to plan and deliver quality learning experiences that support the further enhancement and refinement of fundamental movement skills and develop sport specific skills related to golf, in addition to increasing student knowledge and appreciation for the sport of golf. The Golf in Schools – Grades 9-12 Program will help students to further physical literacy skills that are necessary to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to lead healthy, active lives and enjoy success in all levels of sport participation.
The initial element of the program or base program consists of a Learning Resource and high school appropriate golf equipment that is student-friendly, safe (foams balls are used as opposed to real golf balls), and easy to store (comes with storage bag).
GIS – Elementary Program
The Golf in Schools program has been developed to deliver Physical Education learning outcomes through the sport of golf. The initial element of the program is focused on assisting elementary school teachers (specialists and non-specialists) with and without a background in golf, to plan and deliver quality learning experiences using golf as the vehicle. Developed by Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada) in partnership with Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada, the learning resource was designed to meet the learning outcomes of elementary schools curriculum across Canada.
