"Above and beyond any other sport, golf encourages proper etiquette, integrity, maturity, and countless other qualities that carry over into everyday life. The lessons that I learned as a young golfer myself played a significant role in my own development. SwingPals gives me the chance to offer the same incredible benefits I gained from this sport to kids at an age and in a community where these lessons could have an enormous impact."

"Work for SwingPals is work for the well-being of our students and our community. I am constantly impressed by our students and what they are able to accomplish on the golf course and, most importantly, within themselves. Sharing our mission and the accomplishments of our students with community members is the best part of my job."
