VALENTINE COACHING SOLUTIONS

My purpose over the last 16 years has been to help golfers reach their potential and achieve their goals through my teaching, coaching and mentoring. This has been incredibly rewarding, watching players grow with my support to represent their country,  secure places at university and college and to win scholarships and major tournaments. 

During this time I have launched the Loretto Golf Academy and developed the program into the leading schools golf program in Europe and to lead the team to 11 British Titles. I have also spent time as a National Coach working for Scottish golf as the National Women's coach. During my time I coached teams at 3 Home Internationals, 2 European Team Championships and 1 World Amateur Championships as well as supporting players at numerous national championships. This was also a successful time improving the teams results in all three events during my time. 

As my players have graduated from school and progressed to university I have developed an in depth remote coaching program to support their development as we could not spend as much time together in person. This includes support in key areas such as goal setting, tournament planning, coaching and analysis, practice planning and in depth feedback on performance and stats etc. This is conducted through a variety of platforms to include video calls, video analysis through CoachNow, Stats analysis using GolfDataLab and planning and training plans through shared folders.

Up until now this has been something I have only made available to long term pupils but I am now extending this opportunity to a small group of players who are really focused on developing their game and reaching their goals. Players are required to be driven and really looking to take their game to the next level with the goal to represent their country, play college golf or progress their professional career.

With my experience in college recruitment setting up the Loretto program where I have now sent dozens of players to play college golf and my extensive experience in British Schools golf I also offer a recruitment support service for players wishing to move to a UK boarding school, play US college golf or develop their golf along with their education at the IMG Academy.

For more information please read the information below or get in touch via the button below.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve your dreams.

COLLEGE & SCHOOL RECRUITMENT

There are a great many opportunities for players to develop their golf in conjunction with a first class education at both school and university level. With my extensive knowledge of the education system having run the Loretto Golf Academy since 2003 I am able to offer players and parents the advice they need to make the best informed decisions possible. 

Once registered I will create a plan for the family listing their opportunities and create a player report for the family to send to schools or universities. I am able to advise on what if any scholarships are available and mentor the player during their transition. 

 

Prices vary depending on time scale and whether you are looking at school or university, please get in touch for a free video meeting after which I will be able to provide a quote.
