In this episode of Golf in the Life, Will Robins sits down with Riley Andrews to discuss his journey from struggling on mini tours, to running one of the most successful junior academies in the country. If you’re a golf instructor looking to build a thriving, profitable junior program you need to listen into what Riley has done growing his academy.
Will and Riley discuss the nuts and bolts of running a successful junior academy.
- Where to find quality coaches.
- How to structure your academy in a way that promotes long-term player development, not quick fixes.
- How to train and mentor the people you hire.
- How to put money in your pocket and still grow your business.
Riley provides keen insight into to what makes a great teacher. Sure, you need to have credible experience teaching.
More important though, is your ability to build relationships with juniors and their families. Without this as the foundation, success is hard to come by.
One of the biggest struggle every golf academy owner runs into at some point is hiring additional coaches that buy into YOUR CULTURE. Are your coaches motivated for selfish reasons? Would they rather be playing or running tournaments? Or, do they put the needs and ambitions of your students before themselves?
Looking for additional resources to revolutionize your golf instruction business and learn how to guarantee results for golfers?
