CJGA Team Canada members will also be outfitted in Skechers golf apparel when representing the CJGA and Canada internationally.

Along with the gear, Skechers will host five Skechers Junior Series events across the country. These events will give CJGA members the opportunity to see and experience a range of Skechers GO GOLF products. Division winners will also receive a pair of the latest Skechers footwear.

This partnership will benefit our juniors on the course, while also making an impact off the course to our extended network.”

“We’re excited to partner with the Canadian Junior Golf Association by helping to support the next generation of athletes in this sport,” said David Beecroft, Canadian country manager for Skechers. “It’s also a tremendous opportunity to introduce our footwear and apparel to young players at the grassroots level so they can experience for themselves how our lightweight and comfortable Skechers GO GOLF collection feels on the course.”
