Instruction – Registration open for the International Junior Golf Programme 2018/19 in Barcelona

May 28, 2018 – The High Performance Junior Golf of Barcelona Golf Coaching has now opened registration for its International Junior Golf Programme 2018/19. This is an innovative sports programme in Spain, and the first international golf programme in Catalonia, with a unique proposal of academic training and sports training.

“Our goal is to educate students to be academically competitive, and train athletes to play golf with the skills necessary to succeed at the highest level,” says Carlos Vivas, head golf coach and founder of Barcelona Golf Coaching. This is possible thanks to the High Performance Junior Golf Programme in the mornings at the Club de Golf Barcelona (Sant Esteve de Sesrovires) and ZEM Guinardera sports facilities (Sant Cugat); and the exclusive agreement signed with the European International School of Barcelona (Sant Cugat), where students dedicate their afternoons to the finest education, validated by the United States.

In this way, young talents of any nationality can combine their studies focused on obtaining scholarships for the American universities, with high performance sport en route to professional golf. The programme is therefore open to aspiring golfers coming from any part of the world, who seek to combine their training and top golf competition with their studies in the most flexible way possible.

“We have a multidisciplinary team of expert trainers and we use the most advanced technologies in golf instruction,” continues Carlos Vivas.

“We have 3D Golf BioDynamics, FlighScope, TPI, AimPoint Express, BodiTrack, high speed camera, etc. to cover every aspect of the game: long game, short game, playing on the golf course, club fitting, fitness, mental game, nutrition, etc. In other words, the best technology that currently exists for golf training, aimed at elite players, which we use in excellent facilities, such as Club de Golf Barcelona Golf Club and ZEM Guinardera,” he concludes.

The International Junior Golf Programme 2018/19 of the High Performance Junior Golf is directed by the head golf coach Carlos Vivas, and has a staff including Jesús Chaves as director of instruction, Albert Vilarasau as golf instructor, the national trainer of athletics Antonio Corgos, the creator of Golf BioDynamics Dr. Robert Neal as advisor, the mental coach specialized in sports Sophie Rousseau, and the nutritional coach Ines Tusquets.
