Little Golf T.R.A.I.N. kicked off 2017 during the PGA Merchandise Show Week in January in Orlando, Florida. While our program is typically an online certification, this was the first LIVE workshop that provided both refresher and new training information for Certified Conductors (CC’s) and interested professionals. The fun and engaging 3-hour program consisted of presentations and some role play activities by Dr. Patricia Donnelly and LPGA / PGA Teaching Professional Nicole Weller. Topics covered the theory behind teaching ages 2-5 (what to expect at various developmental stages and how to teach golf based on that) healthy nutrition, the business impact, golf examples and gallery photos of current CC’s, safety and behavioral role play.
While 3 hours seemed short for all the great discussion and questions, it was a special way to kick off the New Year. Little Golf T.R.A.I.N. merchandise and kit samples were also on-hand during the workshop. Many thanks to partner sponsor The Littlest Golfer for their involvement and assistance with event hand-outs and belief in our program!
We have 3 new Certified Conductors onboard for 2017 at the time of this post (welcome to Amelia Rorer, Tommy Smith and Shawna Elliott) and are looking forward to adding more to our team so they can help create programming for more youngsters and families around the world!

Little Golf T.R.A.I.N. also hosted a Conductor Appreciation Event for Cocktails And Apps at a local restaurant on Wednesday of PGA Show week… Thank you to all Certified Conductors who are a part of our program and want to inspire children through early youth golf!
