The Introduction to Competition stage is a very significant period of development. Physiologically, this is a stage when children go through significant rapid growth periods which will affect their coordination.
We Want To:
**Keep sport and physical activity fun.
**Understand the likely challenges of growth and development that will impact this stage and design programming appropriately.
**Continue to develop all fundamental movement skills and teach general, overall sport skills.
**Emphasize flexibility training given the rapid growth of bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles.
**Understand the sport-specific technical skills required according to a golf-specific technical checklist and ensure that attention is given to establishing and reinforcing these skills at all times.
**Repetitive unstructured and imaginative play helps to develop, reinforce and master skills.
**Ensure that developing players are involved in building personal endurance and physical literacy.
