At The First Tee, we believe young people of all ages and backgrounds deserve an opportunity to learn the game of golf and experience the inherent values associated. Our programs reinforce life and leadership skills, build character and self-esteem and promote healthy choices in children and teens.   Your involvement not only affects the success of our programs but the success of our young people. Get involved today by completing an application.

On the left-hand side of the screen are orange buttons depicting the volunteer process.  Our volunteer process is as follows:

  • Application
  • Screening
  • Online Assistant Coach Training
  • Follow-up phone call or email from our Program Director
  • Sign up for classes

In addition, our goal is to provide you with the best environment to make an impact to our young golfers and allow you to engage socially with other caring adults.  During select times of the year, we will offer viewing days of classes that may interest you and social gatherings.
