CPG and PGA of Ukraine Stage First Parents in Golf and Activators Programme2 min read


Posted on: 30th Oct 2020

In collaboration with the Confederation of Professional Golf [CPG], the PGA of Ukraine recently held a three-day seminar – “Parents in Golf and Activators” – for golf coaches and activators, in what was the first education seminar of its kind.

More than 50 participants took part in the seminar, including professional golf coaches, future coaches and activators. The main task of the seminar was to teach such activators, using international experience, various coaching techniques. For example, how to involve people in golf in the city, and not only in golf clubs.

“We plan to hold such seminars annually and involve experts from within these areas”, said Veronika Rastvortseva, Deputy General Secretary of the PGA of Ukraine.

During the seminar international consultant, David Kearney, explained the rules of golf, showed the correct technique for training for beginners and experienced golfers and gave lots of insight into how golf can be made interesting for beginners.

As an introductory course for coaches, it is designed to help those who deliver golf sessions in parks, schools and other places where people can find out about golf and start playing. Longer-term, the PGA is working on coaching programmes at a local university in Ukraine to be able to deliver structured, golf education programmes.

“With Ukraine’s recent announcement as the latest CPG Member Country, the organisation values the need to develop all of its training programmes through internationally-recognised expertise and frameworks, so that they can grow the professional game and the sport more broadly in Ukraine.” said UGF international consultant and CPG representative, David Kearney.

Golf is now integrating into Ukraine’s larger sports in the world of academia. At the university, there will be training in several areas including the theory and methods of training athletes, professional sports and adaptive sports for athletes with special needs.

This training will be provided through Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, and a separate program developed by the Ukrainian Golf Federation and the CPG.

“The main goal of this joint work is to increase the coaching staff of golf in Ukraine, and further the quantity and quality of training of athletes” added the dean of the coaching faculty of the National University of Physical Education and Sports of Ukraine, Yevhen Honcharenko.
