Developed with input from leading experts in the field of positive youth development, our program focuses on empowering participants through decision-making and exploring options. This helps foster positive relationships between coaches and young people, inspiring the golfers of tomorrow to look to the future, set goals, and unlock their potential.

Coaches working through The First Tee Coach Program choose their own level of involvement. The program includes the following levels:

  • Assistant Coach (Assists the Lead Coach in conducting the class)
  • The First Tee Coach-in-Training (Level I, II, III) (Leads a class or session of classes, with help from an Assistant Coach if needed)
  • The First Tee Coach

Volunteer Quotes

  • I thought to myself, “if I can take off work a little early, once or twice a week, to come to the same place where my child is having fun and learning a sport which I have enjoyed playing, why am I not up there helping out instead of sitting around waiting?”  
  • I have always enjoyed teaching younger kids and being a positive role model and mentor for them.
  • I don’t know why I waited so long to get involved with The First Tee. 
  • My oldest, Sarah, has mentioned numerous times wanting to play golf with me one day when she gets better (which she never mentioned prior to joining The First Tee Program).
