The National Development Programme is the pathway that assists young emerging talent from throughout
New Zealand to succeed on the international stage. It currently encompasses three levels of age and
stage appropriate development. These being the National Junior Training Camps, The Srixon Development
Squad and The Srixon Academy. A Rookie Professional Programme is also being developed to support the
very best of these players as they transition to the professional ranks. The programme levels are all
geared towards a common objective of developing more New Zealand golfers who achieve success at the highest
level on the world stage.
The players selected to join this level of the national development programme will be deemed those most likely to go on to successfully represent New Zealand
and become successful on the world stage. Selection at this level is based on both the performance of the player and their ability to develop, or continue to
develop, within a structured programme. One of the key objectives of the programme is to assist and support the development programme that each player’s primary
(home) has in place for their players.
The best of the young emerging talent within New Zealand will be selected for further development,
refinement and monitoring through membership to the ‘Srixon Development Squad’.
These players who are in their pre-elite stage of development, are selected into the squad with no preconceived split of numbers between boys and girls.
They may have been involved in the national junior training camps, either during the prior twelve months or in years previous to that.
One of the key objectives of the development squad level is to assist and support the development programme that each player’s primary (home) has in place for their players.
The objective of the national junior training camps is to narrow the focus from the various district programmes already in place to just two groups of the
most promising of the newly emerging national junior talent. These two groups, one boys’ and one girls’, will come together during the July School Holiday
period each year. The camps will allow for baseline information to be gathered across the key skill development categories’ of technical, tactical,
psychological, and physical. One of the key objectives of the camps is to assist and support the development programme that each player’s primary (home)
has in place for their players.
