These are life skills that will stay with you always and are the foundation to a happy and successful person.
Our unique our proven Junior programme has seen many students graduate to Golf Scholarships in the U.S, becoming national champions and representing their country national teams. The academy also works with a lot of Tour players, which in turn provides a great opportunity and insight for our junior students to see how they work and perform.
The fast growing JFGA Junior Tour provides a fantastic competitive platform for our players to compete and show off their skills. The Academy and the Tours status has become synonymous with producing great players, so much so that college coaches from the united states visit our tournaments and also keep in regular contact with the view of recruiting players onto scholarship programmes.

We provide all our players with a holistic approach towards their development as golfers and individuals. Through our extensive knowledge of the American Collegiate system and also our collaboration with Athletes Worldwide Foundation we provide the very best guidance to players who are deciding on the next step towards their ultimate goal. Working alongside the Jason Floyd Golf Academy and Athletes Worldwide Foundation we have already placed a number of players in Division One Colleges in the United States of America and a number of at highly prestigious Universities in Europe.
The academies competitive experience also provides a great grounding for the road ahead when competing in NCAA events. The established JFGA Junior Tour has been set up with just this in mind, giving young players the opportunity to experience playing on championship level courses against other high level players. These tournaments combined with a full individualised schedule throughout Europe, is put together by our team. This provides a perfect springboard and also resume for each player to present to college coaches.
Our dedicated team also guides the student and parents through the rigorous paperwork and procedures that need to be completed and excelled in, in order to optimise a scholarship application and placement. We provide tutoring for tests such as the SAT/ACT and TOEFL, which are all minimum requirements for American Universities.
