The First Tee North Puget Sound
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. For more than 22 years we have been using the platform of golf to provide innovative and experiential learning opportunities for young people. Character education and long-term life skills are at the heart of our programs, which are delivered by coaches who have been trained in positive youth development. First Tee offers character education programs at golf courses, elementary schools and youth centers in all 50 states. First Tee is expanding globally and currently offers programs at six international locations. We are excited to be adding programming to the North Puget Sound .
MORE THAN A SPORTS PROGRAM FOR KIDS
NINE CORE VALUES
First Tee has established Nine Core Values that represent some of the many inherently positive values connected with the game of golf. By participating in First Tee, kids are introduced to these core values which are incorporated throughout the program. Parents are encouraged to reinforce these behaviors by talking about them, what they mean and what those core values can look like at home.
Meet our Executive Director
I grew up playing golf with my grandfather at Oakway Golf Course in Eugene. Every Saturday he’d pick me up, we’d grab some breakfast and then I got to spend the best four hours of my week with him. Golf is such a great game and can teach us so much about life. My involvement in First Tee started as a volunteer in 2014. I have coached every year since at First Tee of Yakima, where I have been certified as a Level II Coach. Now as Executive Director of the newly formed First Tee of North Puget Sound (Link for 2020) I look forward to meeting all of you!
