The opportunity to train in the Grant Veenstra Golfing Academy comes with a set of expectations and responsibilities designed to support each golfing apprentice as they reach their golfing potential. These responsibilities include mental and skill development discipline, a willingness to develop technical excellence through an openness to learning, and the humility to accept correction and advice from more experienced golfers.
When a student is accepted into the GVG Academy they are welcomed into a coaching world where their specific talent, ability and dedication will enable the coaches, and the people in the students support network to determine a golfing direction specific to that individual. The coaches at GVG Academy provide a wealth of experience that supports students on their journey- whether it be in life, sport, studies or personal growth – empowering with the skills they need to accomplish anything they set their minds to.
Early on in the GVG Academy development it became clear that balancing the demands of high intensity training with the importance of academics required an exceptional solution. Enter Home Zone Educators, a dynamic educator passionate about providing the highest quality of academic standard with the flexibility professional elite athletes require. The academic excellence of our student is a primary concern at GVG Academy and the alignment with Home Zone Educators gives our elite athletes the opportunity to excel in their chosen sport and school.
Contrary to popular belief becoming a full time athlete is less about the glitz and glamour and more about hard work, dedication and fierce determination. At GVG Academy, the coaches understand the sacrifice our students are making to pursue their dreams, just as they understand how difficult it can be when goals are hard to achieve. As a result the GVG Academy coaches mentor students in training and life balance, with time management, rest strategies, accountability, social skills, study strategies and life coaching, preparing each student to cope as a well rounded individual
