About SCGA Junior Volunteers

Our volunteers are individuals who are excited about golf and want to see juniors grow in the game. They support our coaches during class and at special events and work to develop an inclusive golf community on and beyond the course. They gain hands-on experience by working directly with our junior golfers, and create professional relationships with the staff.

We provide plenty of volunteer opportunities within our Player and Youth Development Program at all 3 communities!

ALL volunteers must be cleared through a Background Check and sign our Child Safety Policies and Procedures

Background check instructions can be found HERE

 Volunteer Roles

Class & Safety Volunteer

    • Class volunteers assist with various golf and fitness stations under the supervision of the coach or instructor. They ensure the safety of all juniors, enforce COVID-19 protocols including a distance of 6 feet between all participants, ensuring everyone has access to personal protective equipment (sanitizer, gloves, masks, etc.) and that juniors do not share equipment. Other duties include taking juniors to the bathroom or for a water break and maintaining a fun and positive atmosphere.

Game Day Volunteer

    • During these casual, on-course outings, juniors are paired with peers of the same age and skill level and volunteers walk with a group for the entirety of the round. Ensuring safety is their highest priority. They also enforce pace of play and educate on basic rules, while encouraging good sportsmanship and a positive attitude.

Assessment Volunteer

    • On course-assessments track the progress of juniors and test their skills, ranging from fundamental levels to a full round. Volunteers walk with a group for the entirety of the assessment and keep score. Their highest priority is ensuring a safe environment, and they also enforce pace of play and encourage good sportsmanship.

Special Events & Outings Volunteer

    • Volunteers ensure the safety of juniors at all times while promoting a fun, positive and rule-abiding atmosphere. Volunteers work with each other, coaches and instructors to ensure all juniors are checked in and accounted for, assist with set up and clean up and other on- and off-course assistance. Opportunities to volunteer include community events, LPGA-USGA Girls Golf events, field trips and tournaments.

Community Committee

    • This group advises SCGA Junior staff on changes and updates in the Player & Youth Development Program. The committee will work to raise awareness and increase outreach opportunities in their local community. Committee members are required to volunteer for a minimum of 10 hours, show consistent involvement and attend a quarterly meeting.

“It just makes me feel great that I can see the growth of the kids when I volunteer. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing than being out here with the kids making sure things run smoothly, and they are safe while they are out enjoying the game.”

“To see kids excel, and to see how much they enjoy playing golf is great. To see the coaches sharing their talents and joys with the kids lets me know that we’re building community within the community. That’s the joy.”
