CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.

“It was really fun and I really want to do it again.”

Students at Franklin Elementary learned the basics of golf on Thursday, September 22nd.

“It was fun, but I was also nervous when it started because I had never played golf before.”

And for Haley Rushin, physical education teacher, it’s the beginning of students finding a sport that interests them.

“This is our first week of doing a new golf program,” she explained. “It’s called SNAG and it means students who are new to golf and new to me, just like the students, so there’s a lot that goes into it, but it breaks down the sport of golf, so it’s fun for them and it’s more suited to their little hands and their bodies.”

Rushin said introducing elementary students to different sports at an early age will hopefully encourage them to try when they’re older.

“So this is their chance to try something new that they might not be entirely sure if they’ll even like it,” she continued.

Rushin said she is hopeful the new program will inspire her students.

“I want them to have fun, I want them to love moving and love sports and just moving their bodies and this is an opportunity for me to instill that fun nature through my classes and through intramurals,” said Rushing.

The next sport that students learn from elementary school is basketball.
