The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is pleased to partner with Nike Golf and Men’s National Team Assistant Coach Ralph Bauer to provide an exclusive March Break Camp opportunity at The Oven, home of Nike Golf’s Research & Development facility.  Nike Golf athletes and the greatest minds behind club and ball innovation come together in Fort Worth, Texas to create equipment and apparel products designed to help athletes perform at their highest level.  This once in a lifetime experience will provide juniors the chance to experience the full Oven experience that only Nike Golf Tour players experience. 

Space is limited to the first 12 participants for this once in a lifetime opportunity!

Ralph and his team will assess each camp participants full swing technical ability and discuss/make technical changes or modifications as needed-the goal being that when you are being fit for your equipment over the next several days the clubs will be rewarding your best swings.
March 14th, 15th-  9 a.m.-5 p.m. These days will be reserved for camp participants to experience the full “Oven” experience.  The camp participants will be divided up into groups of 3 with each group experiencing the full “Oven” experience. In addition Ralph will be covering: full swing fundamentals, putting technique, vision training practice, variety of short game shots, mental skills information, customized practice plans for both full swing and short game, tournament scheduling and nutritional guidance.
March 14th 7 p.m.-9 p.m. (at the Host Hotel) Ralph will be conducting a US Golf Scholarship Information session which will include a vast array of topics: SAT prep., maximizing tournament exposure, finding the right school for you, resume preparation and distribution Q and A etc.
