The I GOT THIS Golf Academy is the Foundation’s flagship program where athletes with intellectual disabilities enjoy a 5-day introduction to golf, led by professional golf instructors.
The Level 3 beginner academy provides a baseline of instruction and experiences that encourage interest in golf. The program is open to those age 13 and older with intellectual disabilities, along with a playing partner. The playing partner is critical for an athlete's success as they will be the person who encourages and facilitates practice and play between lessons and beyond the academy. The curriculum is designed to take an athlete from learning basic skills to being able to play with family and friends.
The culmination of the I GOT THIS Academy is a Skills Showcase where athletes have an opportunity to demonstrate their abilities alongside their playing partners, in front of family, friends, and sponsors.
