Youth Prep Program Details
The Measured Practice program was built out of necessity to help coaches, instructors, and players understand their games at a deeper level, assess weaknesses, and quantify practice sessions.  This program measured in a strokes gained and lost method and allows coaches and instructors to manage their players and assign very specific practice sessions for the player to complete and record the results of so that the coach can make more informed  and accurate decisions about where to progress in the players development.  Website will release spring 2016.

If you have interest in testing this program please contact me and we can set up an account for you.
