NCAS launches golf program

FANCY yourself as a regular Tiger Woods?

Well the North Coast Academy Sport is pleased to announce it has partnered with the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation to launch a new golf program in November.

The program is seeking a squad of 12 of the region's elite junior golfers, and aims to further develop their golfing abilities and provide personal development experiences.

For this initial year Bonville Golf Resort has also come on board as a partner, meaning athletes will get to train and play at the Coffs Harbour course.

It is envisaged that three to four camps will be conducted at Bonville over the course of the program, and higher performing athletes may receive invitations to other opportunities.

In addition athletes will receive a sports education component with NCAS's Regional Athlete and Coach Education program.

The RACE program will deliver modules in sports psychology, physiology and nutrition, as well as looking at drugs in sport, respect and responsibility, and core strength and conditioning.

To be eligible, athletes must reside in and be a registered member of a club on the North Coast, be between 13 and17 years old at the time of selection, and have a handicap under 10 for the boys and 15 for the girls.

Golf should be the candidates' primary sport and it is desirable that they have represented at a district level.

To apply visit the downloads section of the NCAS website and register before Friday, November 6.
