Junior Elite Training System Update: Training Champion Golfers

As most of you know, I started a new junior golf program for elite juniors called (J.E.T.S.) that includes 2 coaching sessions per month as well as 2 private lessons per month as well. I wanted to do something different from the normal junior golf program so I partnered with my T.P.I. level 3 trainer, Mark Kane (kanetraining.com) to help develop the kids physically as well as help them improve their golfing skills. I just finished my second month and I am very excited to say that is going very well. We have five kids currently signed up and I am so proud of how hard they have all worked. They are required to keep a journal of what they do when they practice and keep track of their stats using shotbyshot.com. My goal was to create athletes through the fitness and the drills and then teach them golf. The kids did a nice job of setting goals and writing them down and a few of them have been able to mark off a few which is pretty cool. Here are some wins to report so far:

  • Luke Thalman shot a career low tournament round of 65
  • Henry Shimp won a NJGC event by shooting 69-71 and is now ranked number one on that tour.
  • Aaron Walker shot 79-72 to win his first NJGC event

All of the kids have worked so hard and they have pushed each other which was one of my goals of this program. I try to promote a competitive team atmosphere to help motivate each of these fine young men. Here is a couple of videos that will give you an idea of how my coaching sessions are set up. Enjoy.

    Nice job with the program. Keep up the good work and success.


  2. Impressive, Jason. I’ll be keeping an eye on the Dana Rader Golf School for my 3 kids potentially. There all under age 4, so we’ll have to wait a couple of summers. Looks like 5 is the youngest age according to the Junior Academy page on the Dana Rader website.
