TGA Premier Junior Golf, one of the leading after-school sports programs in the country, continues expanding with a new territory in the state of Pennsylvania. Doug Yannascoli, a 15-year public school educator, has launched the new program in southwest Pittsburgh.
“We are thrilled to have someone with Doug’s experience as an educator and passion for youth sports join our team. No doubt he will positively impact the youth in the Pittsburgh area,” says Steve Tanner, TGA chief operating officer. “The continued growth of our after-school golf programs and the impact it is having on the growth of the game is exciting. It is a testament to the quality consumer program our team has developed at TGA.”
Yannascoli grew up in Morgantown, PA, and earned a B.S. and Masters degree in health and physical education from Slippery Rock University in Western Pennsylvania. He has been a physical education instructor for over 15 years, the last ten in the Pittsburgh area. He has been very interested in getting involved in after-school sports programs and recognized that TGA’s school-based program was a perfect fit to not only allow him to expand upon his education and youth sports background, but that it would also bring back after-school sports programs to the district, which recently underwent budget cuts.
