Welcome to the Kevics Junior Golf Academy (KJA)
Training Champions in Golf and Life
Kevics Junior Academy Levels
Our tiered membership program provides a clearer path for our students and their parents. It's a road map to successful long-term skills development. Levels 1 and 2 introduce members to golf in a fun and interactive team environment. When members enter level 3, they are required to have a higher level of commitment in personal practice and on-course learning. The goal for our level 3 members is to prepare them for competitive junior golf tournaments and the high school team tryouts. Each level has an increased number of hours spent with the instructors. Most memberships include team practices and on-course learning.
Please browse the options below to determine in which level your junior golfer might fit. If you need help, we are just a phone call away. Space is limited at each level and some levels may be sold out with a waiting list.
Junior Academy Levels
- Level 1: Tykes & Tots (ages 4-6)
- Level 2: FUNdamentals (approximately ages 7-10)
- Level 3: Advanced (approximately ages 11-13)
- Level 4: Elite (highly skilled juniors & high school players)
- Level 5: College Path (high school players focused on obtaining college scholarships)
Our junior academy memberships require a commitment from the parents and the junior golfers to be at their scheduled practices and to be at any on-course learning that is scheduled. For example: If you are in the Monday Group, then you are expected to be there on Mondays only and be on time for practices. We need you to commit to the day you choose and to be on time. This creates the best learning environment for all members as it limits interruptions to our practices. This also applies to any on-course learning over the duration of your membership.
Re-entry into the Kevics Junior Academy
While we understand there are times when a member may need to leave our academy, we must continue to offer open spots to those waiting to join. If a member decides to leave our academy at any point in time, their spot on the team will be filled with someone on the waiting list. The members re-entry into the academy is not instantly guaranteed. If there are no open spots, then the student will be added to the waiting list in the order their re-entry request was received.
Missing Practice & Make-up Practices
When a member enrolls, he/she is committed to the day(s) chosen. It is the responsibility of the member and the member's parents to review the practice and on-course schedule. prior to purchasing the membership, as to avoid any conflicts in his/her personal schedule. We do this so we can schedule our staff accordingly to make sure we have the appropriate amount of coaches available to conduct the practices. Makes-ups will only occur if there is a practice cancellation due to weather. Our memberships are much like any other team sport/activity. For example a baseball or soccer team: When practice is scheduled for Tuesday at 5:30 PM and the member has a scheduling conflict, the member must decide what to do. If the member makes the decision to miss our team's practice, then he/she misses practice. There is no refund or additional make-up practice created for the member due to their scheduling conflicts.
Golf Clubs Required
It is expected that our members purchase their own set of golf clubs within one (1) month of committing to our Junior Academy. Practicing what is learned during team practices is vital to the success and development of your junior golfer.
We are affiliated with U.S. Kids Golf, the only kids golf club brand to provide a specific fitting system based on height, not age. Their clubs are fit by length and weight to help the development of each player. Our Junior Academy members receive a 10% discount on any U.S. Kids Golf orders through our academy. New golf bags will come with our logo and the student's name embroidered on the bag at no additional charge. When you are ready to order clubs, please let us know.

Credit Card Only for Memberships
All junior program memberships will have at least a 3-month commitment and will be billed as a recurring monthly credit card payment. If you haven't already put a payment on file within our Booker software, you will be required to do so when creating an account.
Q: Is my junior golfer a good fit for a group/team environment?
A: While we wish that every student will fit into our programs, sometimes a group environment isn't the best fit. We require a free 30 minute Meet & Greet for any junior interested in enrolling in our programs.
We look forward to teaching your juniors about golf!
