(United Arab Emirates) – Starting this weekend, November 11, 2023, the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) will host the first Future Falcons event of this season at Emirates Golf Club. This year the Future Falcons National Junior Development Program spreads its wings to a new level with a new structure that will be all-inclusive. The EGF aims to push participation for all national and residents but more importantly, the EGF is implementing a program that will not only develop golfers but also focus on Long Term Athletic Development.
Coming off a strong season last year, the EGF looks to continue to attract more children to the sport of golf this coming year. In 2023 the EGF saw over 3,000 students in conjunction with the Emirates Schools Establishment, the Al Rabeh Academy in Abu Dhabi. The EGF also worked closely with the UAE golf clubs that covered all Emirates in order to maximize the exposure for the sport.
Juniors between 4 and 16 are encouraged to reach out to the EGF and ask how they can get involved and learn the sport. With an increased focus on the ‘athlete first approach’, sessions are now targeted at promoting fundamental motor skills such as agility, balance, and coordination. By incorporating these elements into the program, participants are likely to build a stronger athletic foundation, which can enhance their performance in golf and potentially other sports as well.
