The Junior ACES Programme is all about providing our 14 to 16 year old Student-Athletes with the opportunity to combine their Golf and Education, as well as the development of character and life skills, opening up the doors to University Scholarships and preparation for life after education. The Junior ACES Programme was created as a unique, structured pathway, offering a solution to the demands of combining Elite Sport and Education.
Coupling an outstanding international education at Sotogrande International School (SIS) with personalised full-time golf programmes at the Jason Floyd Golf Academy (JFGA), aspiring young golfers are provided with the best possible opportunity to succeed in both their golf and their education.
Our scholarship agency partner Athletes USA work closely our Student-Athletes, creating the connection with universities across the U.S. to generate scholarship offers, completing the Student-Athletes’ pathway to college.
The Day in the Life
Junior ACES Student-Athletes attend SIS every morning, Monday-Friday from 9am-1pm where they are educated in the core curriculum of the MYP programme, as well as being educated in preparation for their SAT examinations, essential for their application to American Universities.
their personalised Technical, Physical and Mental golf programmes designed for their individual needs.
In the afternoons, the Students-Athletes are transported from SIS to the JFGA, where they complete their personalised Technical, Physical and Mental golf programmes designed for their individual needs from 3:30pm – 7:30pm.
During the Student-Athletes time with us, Athletes USA open up the doors of scholarships, with access to every University in America. They are experts at matching the personal needs of degree courses, location and golf team standard to specific Universities, ensuring a perfect match in the Student-University relationship.
Junior ACES has been designed to be entirely flexible around its Student-Athletes personal needs.We understand that to excel in both Sport and Education, both time and effort needs to be highly attentive, dedicated and efficiently organised. We understand high level golfers have busy tournament schedules, many of which will clash with school term times. With our flexibility, we allow Junior ACES Student-Athletes time away from school to compete and set up programmes to ensure missed work is completed to the highest level.
The ACES Programmes are the “Pathway to the USA”, University Scholarships, the professional Golf Tours, education and success in all aspects of our Student-Athletes future.
