Calling all physical activity leaders, PE teachers, golf enthusiasts, PGA professionals and autism advocates.
The UNESCO Chair in Inclusive PE, sport, recreation and fitness at IT Tralee is proud to co-host the Ernie Els #GameON Autism Golf TM clinic and training in collaboration with the Els Center of Excellence, Jupiter, Florida.
The UNESCO Chair piloted the programme in Kerry for the first time outside the USA and undertook an evaluation of it through MSc research titled ‘The Ernie Els #GameON Autism Golf TM Program for Young People with Autism’ which provides a strong evidence base on the efficacy of the program.
In Kerry the programme has sustained beyond the pilot phase and is now successfully running at Castlegregory Golf Club with view to replicating at other golf clubs around Ireland, starting at Ballykisteen Golf Club.
The training and clinic will be led by Els for Autism #GameON Autism Recreation Coordinator, Daniel Hulsey, from Florida. Daniel has worked with Joey D Golf and Performance Center developing and teaching youth golf fitness programmes and classes. He has worked with Special Olympics, teaching golf to individuals with developmental disabilities, and is currently working to launch the #GameON Autism Fitness and all other programs associated with the #GameON department at the Els Center of Excellence.To register follow his LINK
