TGA Premier Sports develops programming designed for at-home use for the entire family

Los Angeles, CA – TGA Premier Sports values the health and safety of the entire community, students, their families, and coaches. With most schools around the country closed and programs postponed if not cancelled for the rest of the school year, TGA is eager to continue serving local communities during these difficult times to keep a sense of normalcy. In an effort to help everyone Keep Playing!® while families are sheltering at home, TGA will be sharing online golf content designed for at-home use and engagement.

The unprecedented events related to COVID-19 have affected everyone, drastically reducing physical activity and perhaps mental stimulation for children locked out of their classrooms. Teachers around the country have rallied to create E-learning lessons, parents are now educators and perhaps working from home as well. TGA’s mission during this time is to engage students and families together, creating an environment that focuses on golf through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) academic lessons, skill development and activities that get kids moving.

“Social distancing and staying in place at home are short-term realities but that doesn’t mean we want to sit idle with how youth and families experience golf during this time. For 17 years, TGA curriculum has been executed in tight spaces and we have an opportunity to serve our communities through similar programming in a home-based environment,” says Joshua Jacobs, TGA’s founder and CEO. “Our corporate staff, franchise owners, and coaches are committed to working together to churn out existing and new content repurposed in an online platform for families everywhere.”

Over the next six weeks, TGA will be sharing this new online golf programming with its families and students nationwide through email, blogs, and directly online at http://playtga.com/blog/2020/03/3080/. These fun golf related activities can be used by all families and keeps young athletes’ brains engaged and playing.

Many of these activities come from TGA’s highly acclaimed curriculum and student handbook. Activities include at home putting, chipping, and swing lessons giving participants a chance to progress through the skills, learn about the sport, and play related activities and games. TGA will be providing video-lessons from coaches, videos of kids playing the games, warm up exercise videos, games to play solo or with the family, all to put golf skill practice into play. In addition, TGA will provide academic worksheets related to golf and STEAM that the kids can do at home with minimal resources.

In the youth sports segment, TGA (Teach, Grow, Achieve) has become the go-to brand for introducing children to the sports of golf, tennis, and team sports, as well as the nation’s most prolific provider of in-school- and community-based youth sports enrichment programs. TGA’s youth sports “delivery system” is helping strengthen families and communities and reversing the trends of declining youth sports participation in cities across the country, leading to healthier lifestyles. TGA is on pace to register the program’s ONE-MILLIONTH student in 2021. For more information about TGA Premier Sports visit www.playtga.com or follow @TGA_Sports on Twitter.
