Limited space remains in summer golf camps
The Selkirk Saints Athletic program is gearing up for the 6th installment of the annual golf camp that is quickly gaining notoriety across B.C.
“We have strived to create an excellent opportunity for youth to come together for an incredible week of golf instruction, fun and enjoyment,” says Kim Verigin, Selkirk College Athletic director and camp coordinator. “This camp allows us to continue supporting grass roots development of sport in our area and encourage more participation in the junior programs offered at many golf clubs in B.C.”
The camp focusses on the long and short aspects of the game, specialty shots and mental preparation. Club making, history and the rules and etiquette of the sport are also covered.
“The main goal is to expose young golfers of all ages and ability levels to exceptional instruction and facilities that will help and encourage them to enjoy the game and get to the next level if they so desire,” adds Verigin.
Locals may opt for the Day Camp package that runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and out-of-towners can choose the Residence Camp option, which includes lodging, 24-hour supervision and evening activities such as swimming, a night at the movies, Wii sports and fishing on the Columbia River. Both options include meals, more than 24 hours of training, 36 holes of golf, computerized swing and video analyses, free signature golf balls and a free golf shirt.
The dates for the camp are July 5 to 9, and the final registration deadline is June 15. The camp is filling up fast, so everyone is encouraged to register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
