The First Tee® Mission
To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
Visit The First Tee® National Website at www.thefirsttee.org.

The First Tee® is a youth development organization that teaches life-enhancing values to its participants through the game of golf. Its research-proven programs are having a positive impact on participants, their families and their communities.

Through The First Tee®, participants learn to:

  • Introduce themselves
  • Manage emotions
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Set step-by-step goals
  • Plan for the future
  • Appreciate diversity

How do the instructors teach Life Skills? Life Skills and Golf Skills are taught in a seamless fashion during the course of a regular golf class. So learning Life Skills is just another part of the FUN of Golf.

What makes The First Tee® effective in building positive character traits in young people is The First Tee Life Skills Experience™, a curriculum developed by experts in the field of positive development and delivered by trained coaches. Through this experience, participants learn to apply skills and transfer the positive values of golf to everyday life.

Recently added to the curriculum is a framework for teaching young people healthy habits through golf. The First Tee Nine Healthy Habits ™ is a comprehensive approach to educating young people on physical, emotional, and social wellness. The Nine Healthy Habits were created through collaboration among The First Tee®, Annika Foundation, and Florida Hospital for Children to promote healthy, active lifestyles for young people.
