KeNako Golf & Sports Academy.............................back to home
‘ke nako’ is a Sotho saying that literally means ‘the time has come’.
In line with its literal meaning, KeNako Academy is defining a new space within the sphere of Sport and Wellness. Combining technical and scientific analysis with real life experience allows KeNako to be at the cutting edge of its industry niche.
School Going Students
On the student academy side of the business, KeNako’s students enjoy a comprehensive programme that includes international quality school education (at Glenwood House Private School) linked to a golf programme. The academy programme embraces KeNakology™ and KeNako’s Skills for Life™ promise. Students work together with professional experts in the fields of golf (technical - golf professionals); physical (biokinetics, physiotherapy, pilates, individual physical assessments [that take into consideration young adult physical development phases and that guide the physical training programmes], spinal alignment, the Andullation Therapy System); diet (dietician); and sport psychology and mental skills programmes (Psychologist).
All professionals are under one roof at the KeNako Academy building in George.
KeNako’s student programme will positively impact every student’s future life, whether it is in a golf related career or in a business career outside of golf. It will also significantly influence the student’s future life attitude to health and wellness.
After School Programme
As is the case with the school going student programme, young adults will enjoy the benefits of the full golf (technical, physical and mental skills) programme. In addition to the golf programme they can either study at the local Saarsveld Campus of Nelson Mandela University; or they can study by correspondence; but if they are not studying it is compulsory for the individual to complete selected projects and to participate in some community related/environmental/social projects that will be undertaken by the team. Individuals in the ‘after school’ programme are given greater latitude but will still operate within a disciplined environment and be supervised and monitored at all times whilst in residence.
Budding Professional Golfers
Young adults intent on pursuing a career as a touring professional will receive expert professional coaching (technical, physical and mental skills) and support prior to embarking on their tour career. There can be no better grounding for a future professional golfer than that offered by KeNako Golf & Sports Academy.
Professionals and Teams
Tailor-made programmes are devised for established professionals looking to work at their games and for teams preparing for an event.
Recreational golfers of all ages are welcome to spend some time with the professionals at KeNako and to work at improving their game (technically), their physical capability (relative to body shape and size), and their mental attitude to the game.
