Golf Canada to match Golf in Schools adoptions during Adopt a School WeekWritten by Golf Canada
School is back in session and the 2017/18 school year is officially underway. To help celebrate the start of the school year, Golf Canada is proud to announce it will match Future Links, driven by Acura Golf in Schools adoptions from Sept. 18-22 in support of Golf Canada’s Adopt a School Week.
For the first 30 adoptions, any golf facility, PGA of Canada professional or individual who “adopts” a school into the Golf in Schools program from Sept. 18-22 will see their adoption matched with a school of their choice. This matching grant is possible due to Golf Canada’s partnership with the Canadian Seniors Golf Association (CSGA).
Any adoptions occurring outside the first 30 will also be matched, with the second school chosen by Golf Canada. This is made possible by key partners of the Future Links, driven by Acura Golf in Schools program – Acura, Golf Town and RBC.
There are more than 2,850 elementary schools, 300 high schools and nearly 90 intermediate schools (grades 6-8) taking part in the program. Every student should be given the opportunity to be introduced to golf. With each school adoption, facilities and donors help make this vision a reality.
Each adopted school receives the full program kit which includes age-appropriate golf clubs and a teacher-friendly learning resource.
Developed in conjunction with the PGA of Canada and Physical Health Education (PHE) Canada, the learning resource incorporates Life Skills into the curriculum—placing added focus on transferrable skills both on and off the golf course.
