Arona fosters interest in golf amongst the young
The Canarian Golf Federation, under the supervision of manager Lucas Montaner and the Board of Sports of Arona, has once again launched the promotion and practice of the sport of golf in the schools of the municipality of Arona.
The classes of 5th and 6th of the ESO of the CEIP Luis Alvarez Cruz (Las Galletas, Arona) have started with the programme “I play Golf at the School “, receiving classes and training from the hand of two instructors (Aimara Cabrera and Tania Herrera) in the school, where the aim is to bring the sport to children in a fun way and with material adapted to their ages.
This activity will be developed until the summer in three more schools and started again after the summer, where two more schools of the municipality will be added. In total, about 500 young people will enjoy the project.
This first contact with the sport of golf will continue with the selection of the girls and boys who show more interest, to continue receiving classes at Los Palos Golf, hand in hand with the professionals Paco Cea and Nacho Bennasar.
It is not only important to learn to play golf to know and practice a sport, but it can be a way of life for children of the municipality of Arona, which can open doors in the world of work related to tourism and golf , in addition to enhancing the motor skills that our sport provides, such as flexibility, balance or coordination.
