Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase participation in Golf among underprivileged children within the five boroughs and Long Island . Our goal is to introduce children to golf so they may have another option and chance to succeed. Many children do not have the athletic prowess to participate in sports like basketball, soccer and football. Golf has often been compared to Chess and auto racing, two areas that underprivileged children rarely have exposure to. All three require a person to develop a strategy, mental conditioning through proactive and reactive actions and managing stress

Description

Many children do not have the athletic prowess to participate in sports like basketball, soccer and football. Golf has often been compared to chess and auto racing, two areas that underprivileged children rarely have exposure to in schools. All three activities require a person to develop skills in strategy, mental conditioning and stress management through proactive and reactive actions. The clinics will introduce the children to the basics of golf, safety and include a question and answer session with golfers from within their community. In addition, the events will include workshops on mentoring year round, etiquette, and self esteem.
