Dale Balvin of Scottsdale, Arizona, is among the class of the Top 50 Kids Teachers for 2011, as announced by U.S. Kids Golf.
Balvin has been a junior golf instructor for 20 years and is currently the Owner of Arizona Junior Golf, based in Scottsdale Arizona. This is the first time that he has been named a Top 50 Kids Teacher by U.S. Kids Golf.
The award, in its eighth year, recognizes golf professionals across North America who focus much of their time and energy on developing young golfers in their communities. The instructors are judged on several criteria, including percentage of time devoted to kids programs, creativity, communication and efforts to grow the game.
This year’s class represents 25 states and Canada and includes teachers who work at public, private, resort and municipal courses.
The 2011 Top 50 Kids Teachers were recognized January 27, at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.
