Summit Christian Academy will be adding a girls’ golf team for the 2013-14 school year. The team is open to SCA High School students in grades 9-12.
The girls’ golf team will be coached by Tom and Alicia Blumer. Tom and Alicia have three daughters who attend SCA and Alicia served on the SCA Board of Education for six years.
Tom, an experienced golfer, will be the main coach for the team. Before pursuing a career in investment business after college, Tom worked as an assistant golf professional and was able to glean much from his father, a golf instructor in Columbia.
“I have been around the game of golf in some capacity for over 40 years,” Coach Tom Blumer said. “I have learned a tremendous amount over the years from about the game of golf and specifically the golf swing from my father.”
“I believe golf is a great game to develop confidence and character in competition,” Coach Tom Blumer added. “Our number one goal for this year is to have fun and improve while having fun. Some of our girls have never played golf. The goal for them is to learn to play and be comfortable on the golf by the end of the season.”
