Program Information

The North Shore Elite Golf Performance Academy will further enhance the reputation of the Willow Hill Junior Golf Program by infusing the key components from the most successful golf programs in the world.

Long Term Athletic Development

This very successful NSEGPA program deviates from traditional methods of teaching golf to youngsters, in which children spend hours at the driving range mindlessly beating golf balls. Instead, this program is based on the principles of long-term athletic with the brain at different stages of life. It is the very program responsible for training many of the top professional athletes today! This program is designed to instruct juniors to become both sound athletes and skilled golfers.

As co-founder of one of the North Shore Elite Golf Performance Academy and the one professional who has earned the highest certifications in the United States from the Titleist Performance Institute, SOMA Golf, and the CHEK Institute Brandon Wessel will lead a staff that will teach your child key aspects of golf, fitness, health, wellness while respecting all concepts of Long Term Athletic Development.

This is a uniquely different junior golf opportunity than you would receive at a park district, private golf club, or collegiate summer program.

This program differs from all other programs on the North Shore because of the 16 certifications that Brandon has in Athletic Development to back it up. Brandon is one a few golf professionals in the world to first incorporate the LTAD model and has enjoyed watching his athletes go on to have success at the high school and college level. There are other programs that have aspects of LTAD by providing fun games that a child can enjoy but lack the understanding and purpose of athletic development. It makes all of the game playing fun but "hit or miss” as far as helping develop your child. Our program intensely observes a child’s development and provides developmental age appropriate games and drills. Teaching proper movement patterns and training at the appropriate time in your child’s life is critical for maximizing a juniors’ athletic potential. It is our goal to make your child physically literate by the developmental age of 12 thereby allowing them to achieve their maximum athletic potential.

So this summer don't leave your child athletic future in the hands of a less experienced Park District camp or a collegiate camp with very little experience and education in Junior Performance. Brandon is one of the best in the business when it comes to golf performance and he is the professional driving this program!
