SAH Golf Education Program 2021

Our mission at Serious Academy of Hockey is to create an opportunity for individuals who have a passion for sports to achieve their full potential in academics, athletics and citizenship and to create long- term development in all of these areas. By insuring that all of our participants are being challenged and supported and keeping them accountable for their efforts, attitudes and conduct we create an atmosphere for confidence, self motivation and independence to thrive.

We realize that excellence in all areas requires hard work, dedication, teamwork, discipline and commitment. Our educators, instructors and trainers will work hard to ensure the resources and support is in place to make this possible for every student/athlete to succeed.

Our intention is to develop strong golf skills in each individual participating by having daily purposeful training including regular visits to the Saskatoon Golf Dome, Saskatoon Golf and Country Club, ongoing sports nutrition education, mental training, individualized fitness programs focused on strength, stability and flexibility and more! Through a "blended approach" of education we will work towards assisting students/players to reach their highest potential of academics athletics and citizenship.
