Golf Manitoba is establishing a PowerSmart Manitoba Games Regional Training Squad program for the 2016 golf season. The program offered by Golf Manitoba will be similar to 2012, which saw many of the participating players move on to become some of the top junior golfers in the province. Participants of the program are required to be 15 years old or younger (boys) and 17 years old or younger (girls) on August 10th, 2016.
Eight different regions will have access to coaching by a Golf Professional commencing in the spring of 2016. Each Training Squad Member will receive a minimum of 20 hours of training in preparation for a 36 hole qualifier (date and location TBD) to represent their region at the 2016 PowerSmart Manitoba Games in Steinbach, August 7 - 10.
