Viya Golf Academy Schools Programme
At Viya Golf Academy, we're on a mission to bring the joy of golf into the lives of young students. Our Schools Program is a unique initiative aimed at schools in our neighborhood, and it's designed to be much more than just a golf program. It's an educational journey that encompasses both the theoretical and practical aspects of the sport.
What Sets Our Schools Program Apart?
Interactive Golf Presentations: We don't just talk about golf; we bring the golf course to your school. Our interactive golf presentations introduce students to the world of golf through engaging, hands-on activities. It's a dynamic way to learn about golf's rich history and the fundamentals of the game.
SNAG Golf: We provide a soft clubs solution through SNAG Golf. This means students can experience golf with ease and safety, making it accessible to all. SNAG Golf simplifies the learning process and ensures that everyone can enjoy golf, regardless of their experience level.
Afterschool Programs: Looking to continue the golf journey beyond the school day? Our afterschool programs are designed to cater to students from various grades and classes. It's an opportunity for them to refine their skills, build camaraderie, and discover their potential as golfers.
EGF and R&A Support: Our Schools Program is proudly supported by the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) and the R&A, the governing body for golf worldwide. We're part of the "Golf Sixies league," a global initiative that introduces golf to young players in an exciting and accessible format.
If you're a school looking to enhance your curriculum with the world of golf, we're here to help. Our Schools Program is designed to make golf accessible, educational, and fun for students of all ages.
