2020 Performance Athletes in Schools (PAiS) Golf

with support from Loretto Golf Academy

2020 Pais Performance

Following the success of last year’s PAiS (Performance Athletes in Schools) golf sessions delivered in partnership with Loretto Academy we hope to deliver the programme again this winter - when current covid guidelines permit.   

Loretto is fantastic facility to have locally and we are pleased to be able to support our local juniors access practice facilities during the winter months.  Criteria for the PAiS Golf squads is outlined below.  Please note: depending on the handicaps of the players that respond the handicap criteria may alter slightly to accomodate the required numbers in each squad.

 PAiS Golf Criteria


PAiS Performance Golf Sessions (Handicap range 0 – 12)

With Loretto’s support we are fortunate to be able to offer 8 places fully funded places to our lowest handicap golfers that attend high school in East Lothian.

The sessions aim to compliment these players existing coaching plans by giving them the opportunity to utilise local indoor practice facilities locally during the winter months.

All Pre PAIS Development Golf Sessions

We also have the opportunity to invite another 3 groups of 10 golfers to attend “Pre PAiS practice sessions” at Loretto Academy led by Loretto PGA Pros.

Unfortunately we don’t have the resources to offer the Pre PAiS sessions free of charge.

If however we have a minimum of 10 players (max 12) attending each squad we can offer the blocks at the reduced price outlined below.

Ordinarily the charge is £10 per hour per person for a block of group coaching at Loretto Academy however players  that book into our PAiS squads pay the reduced rate of £5 per hour.

If we don’t meet the minimum numbers required we may not be able to proceed so in the first instance we are just looking to gauge interest.

If your child meets the above criteria and is interested in signing up please contact confirming:

Block 1 last year was 6 weeks and block 2 was 7 weeks but the blocks this year will depend on if and when Loretto reopens.


Loretto’s PGA Pros will work with players individually on rotation covering:

1) Goal setting & data collection

2) Trackman Combine

3) SAM Putting

4) Short game skills challenge

5) V1 swing development

6) Pre shot routine building

7) Contraints practice routines, preparing for performance.

We recognise that players at your child’s level potentially all have their individual coaches with coaching plans in place.

The intention of these sessions is to compliment their existing coaching plans by giving them the opportunity to utilise indoor practice facilities during the winter months.

As spaces are limited we are looking for as close to 100% attendance as possible.
