Student-Athlete Program

In the belief that athletics could be used as a means to achieve success beyond the athletic arena. In 2000, BTG acquired a vacant city lot on the corner of 17th and State and created the first of its kind country golf training facility for youth and adults.  The facility features a small clubhouse with state-of-art putting green, hitting mats, turf, and netting.  Shortly thereafter, BTG partnered with the WI PGA Junior Foundation:  The First Tee of Milwaukee County to facilitate the current instructional curriculum for youth and adults.  The facility not only introduces inner-city youth to the game of golf, but also provides a positive environment for them to learn.

In addition, to ensure a broader athletic reach, BTG has partnered with The Game Alliance –  an upcoming online resource center (2013) that seeks to assist student-athletes WIN the GAME of life through athletics.  The mission is to create a collective body of resources that support student-athletes with the exposure, eligibility requirements, and development of excellence to attend and succeed in higher education.  Core areas include:

  • Academic Advising
  • ACT/SAT Prep
  • Career Development
  • Recruiting Education
  • Sports Psychology
  • Leadership/Life Skills
