Golf and Fitness Assessments

This equipment is used for spark classes to help ease the learning process. It consists of bigger clubs and bigger balls so that they can gain confidence and learn the game easier. To learn more about the product, click here.

Child Safety Policies and Procedures

Thank you for being involved with and supporting SCGA Junior. As we continue to evolve and serve more kids in Southern California, child safety remains a top priority.  To that point, we have recently adopted new child safety policies and procedures to ensure the well-being of our participants and to clearly outline our expectations for creating a positive environment for all.  These policies and procedures will be continually shared with everyone involved with SCGA Junior including parents, staff and volunteers to cultivate that Click here to view Policies and Procedures
