The PGA of British Columbia, in partnership with the Vancouver Canucks and BC Hockey, share a belief in the importance of young athletes learning motor skills through participation in various sports. Accordingly, we are proud to once again host Canucks Junior Golf Week in 2020, taking place July 2-9.
The PGA of BC is hopeful to open registration to youth participants in mid-April, but registration opening may be postponed in light of the ongoing COVID-19 concerns. Parents of past participants remain on our email contact list provided they have not unsubscribed from PGA of BC communications, and will be notified of any registration details as soon as possible.
Now entering its seventh year, Canucks Junior Golf Week will be open to children and youth aged 5-18 years at dozens of golf facilities throughout British Columbia. Participants will effectively learn the game of golf through certified PGA of BC-instructed, single-day camps in their respective communities.
The skills developed through golf complement those of other sports, including hockey, while participating in golf also imparts important life skills such as honesty, sportsmanship, responsibility, integrity and respect. Participants will learn the benefits of staying active while exploring the game of golf, all the while meeting new friends and having fun. Canucks Junior Golf Week camps are practical for young golfers of all experience levels, including those who have previously never picked up a club. The initiative has introduced thousands of British Columbia youth to the sport for since launching in 2014.
The cost for a one-day camp during Canucks Junior Golf Week is only $20 (+GST), which includes equipment rental (if required), facility fees, a Vancouver Canucks-branded gift, and certified golf instruction. The length of each camp will vary depending on facility, the number of attendees and the general age of the participants, however camps are estimated to run for approximately 90 minutes.
