Team Parent & Golf Coach (Big League Grades 5-8 only)

We will need one Team Parent or Coach per team.

Team Parent

It is rather common to hear parents say, "I don't know anything about golf; I cannot help." Team Parents act as the head communicators - what parent doesn't already do this? Team Parents will not have to give any golf instruction, and will act as the liaison between the parents and the parish Golf Director. We also encourage Team Parents to set up practices for their team, and take advantage of range time. Without Team Parents, everyone on the team is left in the dark. Why else is this role so vital to making this program highly effective and fun?

  • A Course Manager is on duty to help Team Parents with score sheets. All courses will have Marshals to help teams keep moving and reinforce rules. These two resources create a much easier job for the Team Parents!
  • Share scheduled related information with the players and parents throughout the season.
  • Support your golfer and his/her team by attending golf lessons and course plays.

At least one Team Parent is absolutely required, per team.  Please review the timeline and details about this exciting CYC Golf Program to help you plan ahead.  Team Parents are required to completed items #1 & #2 on the Coaches Corner page.

Golf Coaches

​Know more about Golf and want to help your team by working with the players in addition to the clinics? We'd love to have you! Please note all coaches must complete the requirements as listed on our Coaches Corner page.

If interested, please check the Team Parent or Golf Coach box during registration. We are very grateful to all who volunteer to help our golfers and their parents! This also fulfills your annual work duty commitment!

For questions, please contact the Golf Director.
