Through a partnership between The First Tee and the International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA), teen participants are selected to attend a week-long training at the IJGA in Hilton Head, S.C. 

Around 50 teens are selected each year from a pool of national candidates from chapters of The First Tee. Participants receive instruction on all aspects of the golf game from IJGA instructors, as well as:

  • mental training
  • fitness training 
  • college placement sessions
  • components from The First Tee Life Skills curriculum

Evenings include fun activities such as trips to the beach, laser tag, movies, kayaking and a dolphin cruise. For more information about attending, please contact your chapter.
