TGA Premier Golf Launches New Franchise in Los Angeles
Premier introductory golf program continues its nationwide expansion
TGA Premier Sports (TGA), a leading youth sports organization specializing in introductory and recreational golf programs, welcomes its latest youth sports franchise expansion in California.
Kevin Oliver, a former software and technology executive, has acquired the TGA golf franchise, which will cover the areas of Long Beach, Seal Beach, and Los Alamitos just south of Los Angeles.
Since 2003, TGA has been impacting communities, youth, and families nationwide with its innovative youth sports curriculum. TGA has now launched 68 franchises across the country, including 19 in Southern California. Over 750,000 kids have participated in TGA programs and is expecting to reach one million participants in 2020.
“I have been an active sports enthusiast my entire life with an entrepreneurial side that together is the perfect combination for TGA,” Oliver said. “I am very excited to bring golf programs to area schools and community centers and positively impact the lives of children in our neighborhoods through sports – the same way it had an effect on me at their age.”
Schools and youngsters ages 3-13 will now have the opportunity to be introduced to the game of golf through TGA’s innovative introductory and recreational youth sports platform. More than 70% of TGA students and families have never played golf before.
“We will start out offering after-school golf enrichment programs from January-May with our partner YMCA of Los Altos where the students that enroll will be learning the game of golf along with STEAM academics,” Oliver said. “At the same time, we will develop summer camp programs in partnership with the City of Seal Beach Community Services Department and other golf course facilities in the area to drive new golfers to courses and their Professionals.”
TGA’s (Teach, Grow, Achieve) unique program delivers introductory golf programs directly at schools and community centers through before- or after-school enrichment programs. Schools and families nationwide have embraced the TGA youth sports program not only because of its innovative station-based curriculum that combines athletics, academics, and life-skills, but also because it presents a safe and healthy environment for kids to participate and have an unparalleled experience playing sports. The other differentiator is how students also participate in interactive STEAM Labs that allow them to explore and relate concepts such as gravity, aerodynamics, and simple machines through the sports they are playing.
