Lead a regional Talent Development Programme that supports the development of young Cantabrians to realise their potential as golfers and as people.
The main objective of this programme is to deliver the Canterbury regional component of Golf New Zealand’s (Golf NZ) National Talent Development programme, Phase 1 “District Lead, Golf NZ supported, Talent Development.” This sits within the wider Canterbury Golf Young People in Golf Plan.
While High Performance, succeeding at the professional level of play, is the face of participation, it is Talent Development that bridges the gap from Community Sport to High Performance and lays the foundation for future success. The Golf NZ Talent Development Programme has four key phases. It is these phases, and the many elements within each phase, that supports the talent identification, verification and development of New Zealand’s most promising young golfers as they move along the performance pathway. This Canterbury Golf Talent Development Programme sits within phase 1 of the national strategy and its intention is to bring together our best emerging young players to provide holistic talent development support to prepare them and to move them towards phase 2 and beyond within the national framework.
