Junior Golf Team

St. John Golf Park places great emphasis on raising juniors and youth. A children’s club – Junior Golf Team – has been operating at our golf resort since the autumn of 2010. Under the leadership of experienced professionals and teachers, the club raises young promising and talented golfers. If your child has reached 5 years of age and you would like him or her to dedicate its talent and free time to one of the oldest sports in the world – golf – please do not hesitate and bring your boy or girl to our club. Our team of experts will be glad to advise and help you.

 

Dear club members, parents of children of the Slapy junior team.

You are all cordially invited to meet the representatives of Slavíček Golf Academy, the most successful Czech golf academy for children; the meeting will be held at the Slapy clubhouse on Saturday, 22 November, from 11:00 a.m. We would like to present the opportunity to co-operate with this exquisite academy to all those who might be interested, both parent and child golfers, right here in Slapy, beginning this winter. Mr Tomáš Slavíček, the founder of the academy, several of his coaches, and representatives of St. John Golf Club will attend the meeting.

Slavíček Golf Academy has many years of experience in training children; currently, 160 children are in the programme. The academy has its representatives at golf courses in Zbraslav, Loreta Pyšely and Čertovo Břemeno. Children are attended to by experienced coaches (12 persons), a psychologist, physiotherapist and conditioning coaches, all lead by the head coach, Mr Petr Štrougal. Slavíček Golf Academy operates all year round; outdoor from 1 April to 31 October, indoor at Erpet and in Kostelec u Křížků (Kamenice) from 1 November to late March. The management has also been considering the possible use of the indoor at Třešňovka, Zbraslav (2015). Children can also attend lessons during school holidays; the academy organises a regular summer one-week course for small children aged 6 to 10, as well as for older advanced players. Selected players can take part in camps organised in Italy before the opening of the season (usually in March). Several members of Slavíček Golf Academy are members of the junior national teams of the Czech Republic. SLGA is the champion of the Czech Republic in junior competitions under 14 years of age for 2014; SLGA was able to put together as many as 9 national teams, each of them representing their club!

Mr Tomáš Slavíček, the founder of Slavíček Golf Academy, also provides his personal invitation: “Dear parents, dear children, let me shortly introduce Slavíček Golf Academy to you and set out the reasons why we would like to start co-operating with your golf club. To begin with, I would like to reassure you all that these steps are being taken in agreement with the management of your club. We don’t want to come and change your habits and replace the existing lessons organised for children in your club. We will use all our positive and negative experience gained so far and give our best to create an accomplished and respected golf academy.

We want to introduce an entirely different dimension and incentive to the children programme in your club. Our common interest, i.e. the interest of the children, parents and the golf club, must be to improve the practice and the prospects for the children and their advancement. Within the next 3 years SLGA intends to form children teams from the Slapy golf club, which would also take part in the Czech national championships. True, such goals may seem bold, but we know that we are able to make them come true. All we need is your trust, the trust of your children, healthy relationship with the Slapy resort and, of course, tireless work of our coaches and team.” Tomáš Slavíček – the Executive Director of the company and CEO of SLGA.

All the above and much more will be presented to you at our personal meeting in Slapy. For St. John Golf Club Tom Charvát – the Club Vice-President
