Dear Parents, Welcome to the Chapel Hill Junior Golf Academy (CHJGA). Our mission is to provide a 12-year golf development plan for your junior golfer to take them as far as they want in the sport. The Academy is structured using the Operation 36 Junior Development Platform. The platform is used by facilities across the nation and consists of a team of coaches and parents working together to support the junior in their journey towards shooting par or better for 9 holes. Each junior that enrolls in the Academy will be issued a bag tag and profile in our new Op 36 Mobile App. The Op 36 Platform consists of 6 levels and has a 12-badge curriculum that Academy Director, Joe Alden, will deliver throughout the Academy Semesters. When the junior can demonstrate objectives to coaches they will earn badges on their bag tag and will be able to track and log the progress in the mobile app. Golf Actions are tracked in a social activity feed and points are earned for achieving badges and playing/practicing outside of class. To graduate from the Academy the juniors must progress through all 6 levels and ultimately shoot par or better for 9 holes from their full tee box!

Never swing equipment towards anyone We hold the club head in hands when walking between stations We stay in our stations until directed by coaches to move When riding in golf carts we stay seated at all times with our hands and feet inside the golf cart
Staying Hydrated & Healthy
No soda or sugar based drinks during class (water is preferred) We will take mandatory water breaks to stay hydrated Try your best to go to the bathroom before class starts We alert coaches if we are feeling ill so they can help us right away Be sure to have all medical supplies if you require special medicine
Coming Prepared to Class
Bring your golf bag and make sure that your Bag Tag is attached We recommend bringing your own water bottle each week Wear appropriate sneakers to class each week Be sure to wear golf appropriate clothing to class
DISCIPLINE PROCESS 1st Incident: Warning The coach will inform the junior that they have been issued their first warning. 2nd Incident: Sit Out The coach will inform the junior that they will sit out the next station. 3rd Incident: Call Home If there are 3 or more incidents in one class, the junior will have to call his/her parent/guardian to come pick him/her up from class. MAKEUP POLICY Coach Joe will offer two make-up days per semester your junior can attend. You must email to confirm they will be attending the make-up date. If a class is cancelled due to weather then a separate make-up day will be announced for that class. TESTING Earning badges is an integral part of CHJGA Programs. Classes are reserved for teaching the badges. To earn the badges, Juniors may test at the conclusion of class. There will be mandatory testing days where Juniors will be required to test for a badge. No more than two badges may be tested for on any given day. Testing will not be done at any other time. Juniors should be prepared before testing and know the major objectives of the badge and be able to demonstrate the badge effectively.
Playing: The Operation 36 Golf Matches are designed to teach juniors how to play the game from a hole-out perspective. With the main focus on scoring, juniors progress through 6 progressive yardage divisions and compete against themselves by trying to shoot 36 or better for 9 holes.
Coaching: The Academy Classes are weekly 60-minute sessions for ages 6 to 18. The classes are designed to provide an educational platform for juniors to learn the game and track progress using the Operation 36 Learning System. To graduate from Operation 36 Academy juniors must earn all 72 badges and shoot par or better!
Practicing: The Supervised Practice Classes are the study hall of golf. The juniors practice alongside a coach in an effort to learn to develop good habits and golf skills. Coaches provide feedback and structure to each junior over a 60-minute session. Supervised Practice will enable the junior to accelerate the learning process by having a Coach supervising and providing proper feedback while setting up training environments and tasks to dramatically lower the time to obtain a juniorâ€™s goal.
Mobile App The mobile app will allow juniors to track their progress throughout the program along with tracking their friends and other juniors using the Operation 36 platform across the country. The mobile app will also be a beneficial tool before and after class. Juniors will be encouraged to watch the corresponding video to the subject that will be learned in class. Then, after class while practicing, the juniors will be able to refer back to the video to keep them on track and focused on the proper way to execute the subjectâ€™s learning objective.

Spark Program The Spark Program is an 8-week program that is less structured without the mobile app and badges/levels curriculum. The Spark Program is designed to prepare our juniors for the Operation 36 platform. The same wording and parts of the Operation 36 platform will be utilized to make a seamless transition for the juniors from the Spark Program to the Ignition Academy. Areas of focus will be the following: Safety Etiquette and Rules Parts of the Golf Course Putting Chipping Full Swing Fitness Games and activities will be used as part of the training variations to create enjoyment for the juniors. The goal will be to create an atmosphere of learning and fun so that the juniors will be a step ahead when they reach the age for the Operation 36 platform. Classes will be held on Thursdays from 2:00pm to 2:45pm for 8 weeks. The cost for the program will be $175 per Junior. There will be no multiple junior discounts for the Spark Program.
