Crown Isle is hosting a selection ID Camp for the 2013 Canada Summer Games to finalize three boys and three girls to represent British Columbia as part of the Team BC Program.
A total of three selection camps have been designed for players at the High Performance Level, inclusive of 2011 and 2012 provincial champions and select players from the 2011 Western Canada Summer Games Team plus players in the Golf Canada national and development team programs.
The focus of the Oct. 19-21 training camp at Crown Isle is to continue to assess and train athletes being considered for a spot on the B.C. team for the 2013 Canada Games. Performance data will be collected and processed on Golf Canada’s Sporting DNA program in respect to athlete progression and Long Term Player Development benchmarking. Athletes will be observed in a training and competitive environment and suitable feedback will be provided.
Mark Valliere, current Crown Isle club champion, will be attending the camp in hopes of achieving a spot on the 2013 team. Valliere has just accepted a golf scholarship at University of Texas Arlington and will begin his studies next August.
As well, coach Robert Ratcliffe, also based out of Crown Isle, has been nominated for the 2012 Coach of the Year, an award that he won in 2011.
