How Junior Golf Teach Kids Life Skills

Through the years, junior golf has been recognized as a great sport for kids – and that is because it teaches life skills & lessons to every junior golfer. Here are some of the things that your child will learn when s/he becomes a junior golf:

  • Respect and humility – golf requires a child to show courtesy to other players, and that he communicates with respect. In junior golf tournaments all over the world, it’s well stated that proper and good sportsmanship should be exhibited in all times, and that every play will be ended with congratulating the winner by offering a hand shake.

  • Concentration and silence – golf requires an excellent amount of focus and concentration. So, silence is very important from time to time on a golf course. While it takes practice for young kids, this will be a life skill which teaches respect and constraint for others.

  • Problem solving – deep roughs, sand traps, rain, wind and trees could make it hard for your little champion to win the game. These are all normal and a usual part of this sport, and this could be a great opportunity for smart problem solving, as well as, personal development.

  • Persistence, practice and listening – in golf, quick success is extremely rare. One’s child can become a good golfer by means of persistence, daily practice, and by being open to listen to what his mentors say. In life, it’s important to know that it is always not possible to reach a goal of one stroke when playing golf. Through practicing and making corrections, being open to learn and having persistence – dealing with most difficult challenges will be easy.

  • Focus – golf is a difficult type of sport and it requires the player not to just be familiar with the physics of hitting the ball but it demands intense emotional and mental concentration.

Golf can bring out good intrinsic qualities that a child can continue to benefit from, throughout life!
