The Leicestershire & Rutland County Golf Partnership runs a Talent Academy Program in order to support development of junior golfers that haven't yet been picked up by county level elite squads.
The Talent Academies offer children of all abilities the chance to get high quality coaching and personal development in golf.
The first Talent Academies ran in 2009/10 with over 90 young people involved, increasing the depth of talent in Leicestershire & Rutland. Players involved had their own personalised player programmes, specifically designed to develop their golfing ability to its fullest potential.
Talent Academies aren't just a program purely for golfers already playing, but rather young people who show athletic ability and potential, have key skills, or the signs of them, that can be worked on in a golfing context to create golfers, rather than rely on the tradional methods of talent development.
Those involved receive coaching from some of the best coaches in the county, as well as gaining access to specially designed competitive golf to test their skills under competition pressure.
The program works on the basis of cutting edge theories in talent development and skill aquisition. It promises to challenge the young people and accelerate their development in Golf.
