The Ernie Els #GameON Autism™ Golf program is infused with evidence-based practices for teaching golf to people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Participants learn golf skills while practicing specific autism learning concepts, including communication, emotional regulation, motor, and social skills. The goal of the program is for participants to achieve their individual golf successes, build confidence and self-esteem, in a fun, welcoming and supportive environment.
As we prepare for 2021, we are working on offering classes at three locations; Empire Ranch GC, Emerald Lakes GC, and the Folsom Parks Sports Complex. Class sizes will be limited in order to provide a high quality experience and to encourage relationship building between coaches and participants. All kids ages 7-18 who are on the autism spectrum are invited to register.
We are also looking for people who are interested in volunteering.
