September 29, 2015 // Franchising.com // Wichita, KS – TGA Premier Junior Golf (TGA), the nations leading introductory and recreational golf program ensuring golf’s future continues to attract entrepreneurs nationwide who have a passion for sports.
Meurig Cundy, who has been a youth sports director for eight years specializing in soccer and basketball, is the latest entrepreneur to join TGA by acquiring the Premier Junior Golf franchise in Wichita, Kansas.
Cundy sees TGA as a great opportunity to expand his presence within the community, impact youth and grow the game of golf.
“I have been running soccer and basketball enrichment programs at schools across the Wichita metro area for the last eight years and TGA fit perfectly into my youth activities model,” Cundy said. “I have a passion for health and fitness and believe that all youth should have access to a variety of activities as they grow up, and golf is the perfect lifetime sport for kids to experience.”
TGA (Teach Grow Achieve) is scaled throughout the United States through a unique franchise business model. It introduces youth ages 3-13 and their parents 25-45 to the game of golf through a before- and after-school multi-level enrichment program that incorporates educational subjects like math, language and history, as well as character building, life skills development, health and physical fitness into each class. TGA is also the first youth sports program to introduce STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) core academics into its curriculum.
The success of the model is two-fold: First, introductory golf programs are brought directly into schools and community centers and put on a level playing field with other mainstream sports by placing it on the menu of activities for elementary and middle school students. Second, following the introductory programs, TGA ushers students and their families to golf courses to participate in recreational programs such as camps, leagues and parent-child events.
“We are fortunate to be already offering the program in 11 different schools in the Wichita metro area and expect it to continue growing quickly in the coming months,” Cundy said. “There are a lot of youth in our area who have never tried the game before. The TGA program prides itself on being an introductory and recreational program accessible for everyone no matter what level of player you are.”
TGA Premier Junior Golf (TGA) is the leading industry model in bringing new players into the game and ensuring its future.
