Team Ontario heads south for winter training
Team Ontario athletes along with their coaches are heading to Winter Garden, Florida for the first winter training camp of 2017. The team will have five days of training and team bonding at Orange County National Golf Club and Lodge, one of the top training facilities in Florida.
The team will be training on and off the course including an inter team competition on Saturday and Sunday that all members are excited for. Team Ontario Head Coach Reggie Millage, echoed the same excitement as the players.
“I am really looking forward to training camp this week. We are at a great venue (Orange County National) where a year ago at this time they were hosting the final stage of PGA Tour Qualifying school. It has the biggest practice facility I have ever seen and boasts two Championship courses and a 9 hole short course. We will be training and playing every day. We want to take full advantage of the facility and weather to maximize our time down in Florida. It will be a busy camp and will allow us to gauge the off season progress and prepare the athletes who are competing over the winter holidays,” said Millage.
The team’s Strength and Conditioning coach and chiropractor, Dr. Nick Martichenko, also spoke of the squad.
“This year’s team has worked really hard in the gym to be physically better and more athletic. This Florida camp allows us to evaluate progress, update programs and learn how to effectively train on the course and in the gym all in the same day.”
Afterwards they will also have a local camp at Peak Performance Golf, followed by two more winter warm weather camps including the Can/Am Matches, during March Break with the South Carolina Junior Golf Association at the Wachesaw Plantation Club in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.
