TGA of Bergen County
TGA of Bergen County's staffers know golf and tennis, but above all else, they know kids. The highly trained pros and education experts have teamed up to design age-specific golf and tennis programs that not only teach children the rules of the game but also instill valuable life lessons, education, and a love for physical fitness. A proud USTA National Partner, the TGA develops its methodologies and curriculum in conjunction with the USTA's youth tennis standards. As children swing clubs and rackets, the instructors stress playing fair and developing self-confidence through success, giving them positive motivation and praise after they sink a tricky putt or hit a winner on the tennis court. The classes are interspersed with academic lessons on subjects such as math, science, and history, and of course, a healthy dose of fun. Whether the prescreened and certified instructors are leading kids in a summer camp or after-school program, they provide all the clubs, rackets, balls, and robo-caddies needed.
