This week our guest is Junior Golf Leader Kate Tempesta. Kate was voted one of the best young instructors by Golf Digest. She works out of New York City with Juniors age 3 -15 years. She has so many ways to engage with young golfers with games and thinking out side the box. She uses imagination and is here to let us in on some of the methods she uses in her award winning programs. Here is just a peek at what Kate is doing at her Urban Golf Academy-
In our classes, your child will develop the skills and enthusiasm necessary to become a lifelong golfer. Our curriculum is built on age-appropriate childhood development techniques, golf skills, and athletic development.
Our philosophy is that children learn most effectively when having fun at any age. We are serious about the “fun factor” and we are serious about playing golf! In our classes, students engage in age-appropriate activities focused on golf while connecting to physical, social, cultural and academic concepts. Our classes and activities empower students to work as part of a team, build self-confidence and sportsmanship skills, and develop an aptitude and love for the game of golf.
We believe that small group instruction with individual focus on each student is key to maintaining a natural balance between learning and having fun. Students receive immediate feedback on their progress and customized instruction that is specific to their individualized learning styles, as they engage in activities that stimulate and challenge them.
Typically, we maintain a maximum 5 to 1 student to teacher ratio to give students support and encouragement to move forward and keep them excited about their progress and the game of golf. At UGA children are empowered as they learn new skills and learn more about themselves in the process.
