Introduction College Golf Basics Tutorial Series
Attending college and playing collegiate team golf can be an unforgettable experience. Aside from the obvious benefit of getting a college degree, collegiate golfers gain life skills such as teamwork, communication, and time management. College golf can be a great opportunity to compete at a high level and hone your skills to prepare for the professional level. In any profession!
If you are familiar with collegiate athletics at all, you probably know that most inter-collegiate athletic programs belong to a voluntary association such as the NCAA, NAIA and the NCJAA. These associations govern the competition and set the standards and guidelines for which the athletic programs must adhere.
The NCAA, or National Collegiate Athletic Association, is probably the most widely recognized association, but not the only one. The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is a similar association of smaller colleges and universities. The National Junior College Athletic Association (NCJAA) is an association of community and junior college athletic departments. NCAA and NCJAA are limited to institutions in the U.S., whereas the NAIA permits membership to colleges and universities outside the U.S.
Whether you are an aspiring professional golfer or simply want to play college golf, it is important to be well informed.
The MyGolfPros College Golf Tutorial Series is meant to provide junior golfers with a road map to a successful career in collegiate golf.
