The Developmental I Program is designed for new and developing junior golfers, is the first of five levels in the USA Junior National Golf Team Program. Group-based activities are overseen by Certified USA Junior National Golf Team Coaches.
Developmental participants take part in structured weekly training sessions designed especially for technical golf instruction, sport performance, and fitness. Participants will be grouped by experience as they work to achieve the benchmarks necessary to enter the Developmental II program. Participants will also participate in on-course learning activities.
Each member of the Developmental I Program will receive a USA Junior Golf hat and one dozen USA Junior Golf Team golf balls.
Developmental participants must have their own set of golf clubs, but are not required to have any competitive golf experience. Juniors should have a desire to learn and participate in a team sport setting.
