Future Stars

The Future Stars program is designed specifically for juniors seeking a structured golf-training environment, is the third of five levels in the USA Junior National Golf Team Program.  Training is conducted in small groups by Certified USA Junior National Golf Team Coaches.  

Future Stars participate in structured weekly training sessions to fine-tune their technical golf skills, sport performance, and fitness.  Participants will also have numerous opportunities to implement their skills during on-course activities.

Attitude, work ethic, and the desire to participate in a team sport setting are important for Future Stars participants.  Future Stars are expected to display a passion for the game and have experience in competitive golf events. Juniors should have a desire to learn and work hard.

Each member of the Future Stars Team will receive an Individualized Player Development Manual, USA National Team hat, USA National Team balls and USA National Team golf bag.  Future Stars participants are eligible to attend Regional USA National Training Camps on a space available basis.


Future Stars should score from the low to mid 80’s to low 90’s in competition, or have a USGA handicap index between 10.0 and 18.0.  Age is not a determining factor in participant selection, but training is targeted to juniors age 11 and above.
