In 1995, G2 Founder Ray Travaglione opened the first junior golf boarding academy. In over 20 years, little has changed – the model is still focused on the boys.
G2 is all about the girls.
Our proprietary training system was created around the needs of female athletes to empower them to own their future. The G2 Academy provides a competitive, distraction-free environment where it’s all about the girls. G2’s proprietary training program is designed to help female junior golfers achieve their goals. We’re developing the next generation of female leaders, giving them the training and skills they need to win on and off the course.
The G2 Academy is fortunate to have support from premier industry influencers and leaders. The G2 Academy Friends are passionate about the game, passionate about the G2 mission and impacting the growth and development of the students.
Anya Alvarez was a four-year letter-winner, and an honorable mention in the Pac-10 during her collegiate golf career at the University of Washington. Upon graduation she qualified for the U.S. Open on her first attempt, making that her debut professional tournament, where she made the cut. She went on to play two years on the Symetra Tour, followed up with one season on the LPGA. When she left the tour, she began writing for espnW and the Guardian about women's golf and developed a passion to help promote gender equality through golf. She currently hosts a podcast with the LPGA Women's Network called Talk Birdie To Me which touches on issues regarding equality in women's sports, and founded a creative agency Major League Girls, which focuses on empowering girls on and off the field through sports.
Alvarez is excited to have the opportunity to help female junior golfers pursue their dreams of collegiate and professional golf. “As a young girl, I was the only girl that played golf at my course, and even had to had to play on the boys’ golf team when I was in middle school. Had G2 been around when I was younger, I would have begged my parents to attend so I could be around other girls who shared the same passion as I did,” states alvarez, “I'm excited to be part of the Friends of G2 Family and help promote their message around giving girls tools to excel on the golf course, and become leaders off it.”
The G2 Proprietary Training Program encompasses all areas of golf development including swing mechanics, course management, mental training, nutrition, and fitness.
Finding the best school for our students is vital to the college placement process. G2 works with students from start to finish, applying 30 years of experience helping thousands of junior golfers earn college golf scholarships.
We envision the G2 students graduating ready to take on the world as the next generation of female leaders. G2’s Leadership and Empowerment Curriculum is designed to give girls the tools they need to develop this skillset.
