Enrollment Criteria

GROWTH MINDSET

Each junior golfer must approach practice with a growth mindset. A growth mindset is the belief that skill can be developed through hard work and effective practice. People who exhibit a growth mindset understand that success is not given to anyone and is achieved through hard work and the utilization of a team of experts.

COACHABLE

Our junior golfers are expected to always have an open mind, and embrace the mesage shared by our team of experts.  Every successful person is not where they are today because of work they did on their own.  True success is achieved by embracing the support of a tem of experts who drive you to become better.

SELF-DRIVEN

SMART Golf & Fitness Junior Elite players are expected to be self-driven and carry a burdning desire to improve.  Our practices and fitness sessions are not easy, and junior golfers will be challenged on a daily basis. As much as coaches and parents can try to motivate a player there is no substitute for the player having the drive themself.

COMPETITIVE

Players need to approach each day with a competitive edge. Junior Elite players will practice in groups with players of very similar age and skill. Juniors are expected to push one another to improve on a daily basis and record personal bests throughout the year.

TOURNAMENT EXPERIENCE

We require that players are competitive and have a history of playing in tournaments. Our program is intense, and we are looking to recruit players that have exhibited good performance in past tournaments. Our palyers are also expected to continue to play in nationall recognized tournaments throughout the year.
