Making a Difference

The First Tee Coach Program is a multi-level educational training program that prepares staff and volunteers at chapters of The First Tee to deliver The First Tee Life Skills Experience. The First Tee philosophy that drives these programs was developed with input from leading experts in the field of positive youth development.

Through a progressive series of activities and educational experiences, coaches learn to empower youth to explore options and make their own decisions, two elements that are critical to the development of a child’s value system. Research shows that The First Tee Coaches play a key role in creating positive relationships that inspire young people to look into their future, set goals and discover their individual potential.

Individuals can progress through several stages of The First Tee Coach Program depending on the level of involvement and training desired:

  • Assistant Coach
  • The First Tee Coach-in Training (Level I, II, III)
  • The First Tee Coach
  • The First Tee Master Coach
