Shawn Humphries runs an amazing junior academy in Dallas TX running groups of elite juniors through his process of teaching, training, and coaching.

 

There is a lot of responsibility and accountability.  You have to create a culture of responsibility and stability not only for the students but also the parents.  Golf is one of the hardest sports on earth so you have to get commitment from students.

Golf is 90% mental yet it’s rarely taught or coached at manyacademies, when in reality it should be a priority.

How defined are your programs?

Jeff has created an amazing group coaching model for juniors age 5-12. It’s more about developing athletes than getting students in front of a bucket of balls working on technique. In fact it’s the other way around as Jeff says they’re “blending in golf at appropriate levels.”

 

One important aspect of the junior training program we talk about is having a solid curriculum, planning out each session so the coach is never wondering what comes next. In fact they’ve built out an entire plan… Not only for each session but also the development from a long term perspective.

The more we make it golf like.. The less fun it is for students.

The goal is to get students to do the right thing without overwhelming them with technical jargon. Jeff shares a couple drills that they use the accomplish this goal.

Want to improve your understanding of how to work with groups? Then the next 6 weeks are going to be just for you! This new series (and adjoiningmasterclass) is just for you.

Dr Rick Jensen and Henry Brunton bring some of their best info to this conversation.  Talking all about how your students actually learn and some of the most important factors (most instructors forget) when working with groups.

One reason to many instructors fall short when working with groups is because they feel like they have to be the show… It’s just not true.  Let your students learn and discover on their own.
