"Where the kids have fun every week!"


Hear what other's think

"When you have a son who approaches every sport with huge trepidation, mainly because of his own fear of failure, largely attributable to the fact he has ADHD, I was nervous beyond all belief about him going to golf coaching.  I needn’t have been.  Shay was a professional on every level – he clearly understands how to teach children, but also children who need to be taught in a different way.  He was patient, kind, empathetic, understanding and motivating.  Rare and unbelievably effective skills.  I saw my child grow in confidence and ability in the short time we had with him.  He was literally knocking the ball out of the park at the end.  I am so glad that there are sports coaches out there like Shay, who can coach the individual as well as the sport.  Magical."
