The Learn to Compete program has been designed to actively promote youth participation in the competitive stream of junior golf. As athletes go through the Learn to Compete program, they will be required to achieve 75% of the performance benchmarks in order to progress to the next stage.
LEVEL COMPLETE – In order for an athlete to complete a program stage, the athlete must successfully achieve 75% or more of all the benchmarks for the stage being graded. The athlete will have to repeat the incomplete program elements until 75% of the benchmarks for the stage being graded have been achieved.
LEVEL INCOMPLETE – In order for an athlete to not progress through to the next stage, the athlete completes less than 75% of the benchmarks for the stage being graded. The athlete will have to repeat the incomplete benchmarks in order to advance.
(Example: If an athlete is in the New Competitor stage and there are 8 benchmarks to achieve, the athlete must achieve at least 6 of the benchmarks (6/8 = 75%) to progress to the Developing Competitor stage). Once an athlete has achieved 75% of the benchmarks in a stage, they have graduated to the next level of the program and will receive a progress reward.
