Youth Sports Player Pathway...
Why Play with TGA?
We believe sports change lives.

Athletics
Our programs align with the American Development Model (ADM) created by the U.S. Olympic Committee to help individuals realize their full athletic potential and utilize sport as a path toward an active and healthy lifestyle.
Academics
We use sports as a vehicle for teaching academic lessons. Students participate in interactive STEAM Labs that allow them to explore and relate concepts such as gravity, aerodynamics, and simple machines through the sports they are playing.

Play Days

TGA Play Days are an opportunity for developing athletes to experience social and competitive aspects of sports in a low-pressure setting. The emphasis is on fun and safety as players get a chance to put their skills and knowledge into play.

Play Days are the second point on our player pathway because they are a great next step for anyone who had participated in a TGA Enrichment Program or any young athlete who wants to continue developing their game through organized play.

"This is an awesome way for children to learn about Golf & Tennis. My son has been going to TGA for the past three years and absolutely loves it. He has learned more about tennis than I could ever teach him and in golf he loves playing in the tournaments.

I have been recommending this program to everyone in my program at Pleasant Union Elementary Before & After School program and I highly recommend that other school's in Wake County jump on board and offer this program at your school.

"TGA is an incredible program that allows children to learn at their own pace. The teachers are very friendly and they make it fun for the children to learn golf or tennis.

As a director of a Before and After School program, I have a number of children who go to my program and also TGA clinics and all the children enjoy the program so much, they wish it was more than one day a week. My son has enjoyed playing tennis with TGA and wants to do it again this year, for his 4 year in a row. TGA also allows students to help others, which my son is very happy to do this year.
