We believe our values extend beyond the golf course, which is why we launched a program to meet youth where they spend time. Specifically designed for youth-serving organizations, like the Y and the Boys & Girls Club, First Tee Community Program gives kids the chance to learn about golf and develop character through fun golf games.
We supply the curriculum, the equipment and the training for youth leaders to deliver the program. Much like our other programs, First Tee Community Program is designed to introduce kids to golf and First Tee’s Nine Core Values — respect, courtesy, responsibility, honesty, sportsmanship, confidence, judgment, perseverance, and integrity.
We wrote our lesson plans and activity guides with youth development professionals and volunteer leaders in mind. First Tee Community Program is a hole-in-one for any setting, class time, and class size.
Our lesson plans introduce youth to golf through activities that resemble sports they may already be familiar with, like baseball, football, bowling, and tennis. Instructors receive an activity guide that includes:
- 18 detailed activity plans
- Information section explaining teaching methods
- Safety and class management procedures
- Instructional cue cards
- Golf terms
Corinne Morgan, a Physical Education Specialist in the Boise School District share her comments regarding a visit to her classroom…
“The best part was watching how much fun they had while learning to develop their golf skills. I appreciate your emphasis on character traits we work on all year, as it’s a major focus in my teaching as well. Thank you so much for sharing your talents and enthusiasm for life. You were excellent role models and mentors and impacted their lives beyond measure!”
