What to expect the day of

Where do we go?

When at Langley Golf Centre 21550 44 ave, Langley:

Golfers can wait by the concession stand and coaches will find you at the start of class.

What do we need to bring?

Dress for comfortable outdoor activity.  Runner are preferred for footwear.  Bring a water bottle with your name on it.  Clubs are not needed but if you have your own please bring them.

How big are the group classes? How many kids in each?

We put a limit of 6 golfers per group.  This allows for a fun social experience but still enough attention to build their skills.

Schedule info

What if my lesson falls on a holiday?

We run all LABsters programs on Stat Holidays unless otherwise posted

What if there are 5 weeks in a month?

Every month the junior golf program runs for 4 weeks. If the month has 5 weeks in that month, there will be no session on the 5th week.

Do classes still happen in the rain?

Yes we are west coast kids and the rain wont melt us.  We will only cancel a class if the weather is unsafe for travel to the course (heavy snowfall for example).

How long is each class?

The classes run for one hour.  They are separated into three stations of twenty minutes each.  Fundamental movement skills (warm-up).  Short game skills.  Full Swing skills.  Make sure you arrive a few minutes early so you don’t miss out on any fun!

General Info

What clubs should we be using?

By far the best choice is US Kids Clubs.  They make the process so easy for getting the right fit.  KIds should always outgrow rather than grow into their clubs.  With a new set built for golfers every 3′ of growth there is a set right for all ages.  We send our golfers to Surrey Golf Course to get their clubs.  Sets can be ordered and usually show up the next day.  If you are unsure if your current clubs are a good fit get coach Chris to take a look.

What is the next step after my kids fall in love with LABsters?

For youth who have graduated out of the LAbsters program, the next steps are simple!

Get out and play on the course.  We hold events where kids can come out in larger groups.  But playing is for sure the most important next step.  This will bring all the lessons together and will present challenges for your young golfers to work through.  If they need help then booking private sessions is a great idea.  We also have year-long programs for those that want to take build their golf and physical skills together through The Tour LAB programs.

We offer the following programs withing our senior division within the Tour Performance Lab:

  • LAB ‘Build a Golfer’ for ages (11-16) 30+handicap
  • LAB ‘Train to Compete’ (ages 10-17) 10-30+handicap
  • LAB ‘Train to Win’ (ages 13-18) 10 handicap or less
Do we need prior experience to join LABsters?

Absolutely not!  This is a fun beginner/intermediate level program to help you start your journey into the game.  Some golfers stick with us for years because they love the environment but typically once kids start playing they move on from class and get out to play more and take a few lessons privately when they get stuck with their games.

What happens if I miss a class?

We will always do our best to offer makeup times.  This can only be done if there is room in different class times for your child’s age group.  We do our best to never go over 6 kids per group.  During the spring and summer classes get very full so this can be challenging.

What makes this program great?

With coaches that get in and PLAY with the athletes, we are able to build strong bonds that last a lifetime.  Moving laughing and taking on new challenges is such a rewarding experience for the kids and coaches.  The skills learned during class go far beyond the course.  Hard work, honesty, problem-solving, social skills, self-confidence and respect to name a few.  Embracing a healthy lifestyle at a young age is so important for the future of us all.  Besides what better setting than a beautiful golf course to practise these values?
