Future Elite Program
The Future Elite Program (FEP) is a year-round comprehensive training program geared toward the young junior golfer who is just a beginner or at the beginning of showing an interest in competitive golf.
In order for junior golfers to be considered for the FEP, they must meet the following requirements:
- Be at least 6, and have been exposed to golf by their parents or other instructors or clinics;
- Be at a maturity level to handle the time commitment and expectations of the FEP, as evaluated by DCGA instructors; and
- Have at least a beginner set of clubs.
As a member of the FEP, each player will learn the following values and techniques:
- First and foremost, players will learn the meaning of hard work, dedication and commitment. Without those three things, an FEP member will not succeed.
- Focus—an FEP member will learn what it takes to focus on a specific task and understand how to avoid distraction while practicing or playing.
- Fundamentals—each FEP member will learn the basic fundamentals of their posture, grip and alignment as well as a very basic understanding of the golf swing.
- Competition—because FEP members will be competing with their peers on a daily basis, they will slowly be introduced to a competitive atmosphere.
- Camaraderie—members of the FEP will learn to care for others all while working as hard as they can to succeed themselves.
