Zoom Snack Breaks: Maintain Connections with Junior Members
How has this idea enhanced your club's operation, etc.?
When our spring golf season was postponed due to COVID-19, the professional staff immediately set up 30- minute Zoom “Snack Breaks” for juniors to help them stay connected and allow them to do something fun during virtual school snack breaks.
How was this idea implemented, and what have been the club members' reactions?
Here is how it worked:
- Juniors registered for a Zoom with their favorite golf pro for 30 minutes, twice a week
- We identified a topic for each Zoom session - not always golf! Try: What have you been up to? What is your favorite book? Can you tell me about your pets?
The Snack Breaks only lasted for a few weeks, until the junior golf program resumed, but were well received. We plan on using this general idea over the winter if we run into any other reason juniors aren’t able to come to the Club.
