In the great state of WA we will be providing a great opportunity for CEUs in conjunction with a PGA tournament. THAT'S RIGHT! Get .7 CEUs (7 hours) on Tuesday, August 19th and by Friday be attending the PGA tournament for free. In the morning of the 19th will be education on various disabilities and ways to adapt golf for the many abilities. You will have rotations to learn to use the adaptive golf carts and adaptive golf gear. In the afternoon you will work with people with varying disabilities and put in practice what you just learned. It's a great day out on the Snoqualmie TPC where your $20,000 member fee is waived for the day! If you don't get a chance to come be a therapist at this clinic, by all means at least tune in to the GOLF Channel on August 24th and see who wins the BOEING CLASSIC and if they have any footage of us from our Tuesday clinic. Check it out:
This has been a great clinic since 2010 and has provided a great opportunity for a PGA tournament to have more focus on people with disabilities. Since we began, the tournament has been made more aware of ways that they can make the tournament accessible and they have provided more space and accommodations. Every year I see changes. It's been a fabulous side benefit to the clinic.
We have a limited amount of spaces left and they are filling with PTs faster than RTs. So I'm trying to hold a few spots for RTs.
Of course, it is worth the flight to come out to WA in August.
