Searching the Phoenix area for junior golf programs we realized that there was very little being offered in the way of after-school golf programs, but a high demand.

We decided to launch a TGA chapter here in the East Valley to enrich the lives of the children in the area.

Since then we have added a team sports program. We now offer in addition to golf the following sports: Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball, Lacrosse, Floor Hockey, Cheerleading and Flag Football.

Our goal at TGA of East Phoenix is to grow the game of golf and team sports through early introduction to these sports and to keep them engaged for years to come through a fun curriculum. Golf and team sports are truly sports that can be played for a many years or a lifetime and can open many doors as the child grows up and throughout adulthood. We want to create a new generation of players and change lives through these sports.


Golf is my passion. I love how different every round can be and the challenges that you must face while playing. Getting the opportunity to share that passion with kids is even better! I love watching them learn and improve and just have fun with the game.



I have been playing golf since I was 7 years old and found a love for this lifelong game. I am currently playing on the Varsity Girls Team at my high school.

I want to teach kids golf because I enjoy being around them and want to help them develop a love for the game.


I grew up with the game of golf and played on my high school golf team. I enjoy teaching kids golf and seeing them succeed and having fun while doing it.


I enjoy socializing and playing sports outside. Golf lets me enjoy both of these. Coaching children so they can enjoy this sport helps them to socialize with people personally without electronic devices and play outside for the rest of their lives.

Company History


TGA launched its first Golf Enrichment Programs at six Los Angeles schools. TGA’s focus was to provide PK – 8th grade students with an opportunity to learn golf through an innovate 5 level after-school program. This program made golf affordable and accessible for children, and received an overwhelmingly positive response from schools, parents and students. TGA expanded its programs within Los Angeles area schools to accommodate the demands from students and parents who wanted a golf program within the safe, convenient environment of their schools. The curriculum also provided transition for students to go from their schools to programs at the golf course.


TGA’s first camps and clinics were offered at golf courses. TGA also incorporated the expansion of physical fitness and education components as well as adding a character development initiative within its school programs.


Golf professionals along with entrepreneurs began expressing their interest in the unique sustainable and scalable model of TGA. By the end of 2006, after three years of honing and improving the TGA business model and curriculums, TGA began offering geographically exclusive franchisees which became the TGA Premier Junior Golf Program now running throughout the United States.


The USGA approved TGA’s curriculum under the rules of amateur status and TGA became National Partners with the After School Alliance and the President’s Council on Physical Fitness.


TGA achieved its first ranking in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500, and won two industry awards for Business Achievement and Player Development.


Golf Magazine named TGA’s CEO, Joshua Jacobs to Golf’s 40 Under 40 list. TGA was named as one of 10 Best Franchise Deals around the world by Entrepreneur, along with jumping 131 spots in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking from #450 to #319. TGA was also termed the 4th best youth fitness franchise. TGA also formed the 501c3 TGA Sports Foundation, to be able to apply for grants and funding to serve under-resourced areas as well as mentally and physically disabled youth.


TGA gained its 50th franchise along with having seven multiple franchise owners across the country. TGA also branched out into the sport of tennis, signing a National Partnership with the United States Tennis Association (USTA). TGA’s model is now being offered in both the golf and tennis industries and is known as a leading initiative to grow both sports while providing small business ownership and job opportunities. The TGA / USTA proprietary Enrichment Curriculum is solely used by TGA Franchises within schools. TGA works with USTA National along with USTA Sections, Districts and CTA’s to complete the Player Pathway and help feed the USTA’s adult and junior initiatives to grow the sport.


TGA signs its first tennis franchise. TGA’s Youth Sports Franchise model is now one of the fastest at growing junior golf and youth tennis participation amongst 3-13 year olds. TGA’s motto is to Keep Swinging!® and we strive to provide all American youth with the opportunity to learn golf and tennis in a fun and educational environment.


TGA launches a third franchise opportunity that includes 6 team-based sports: cheerleading, flag football, floor hockey, lacrosse, ultimate, and volleyball.


TGA celebrates its 15th anniversary and impacting over 775,000 children through sports programs across the U.S. and Canada.
