In Youth Centers: The First Tee DRIVE
We believe our values extend beyond the golf course, which is why we launched a program to meet youth where they spend time. Specifically designed for youth-serving organizations, like the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Club, The First Tee DRIVE gives kids the chance to learn about golf and develop character through fun golf games.
How The First Tee DRIVE Works
We supply the curriculum, the equipment and the training for youth leaders to deliver the program. Much like our other programs, The First Tee DRIVE is designed to introduce kids to golf and The First Tee’s Nine Core Values — respect, courtesy, responsibility, honesty, sportsmanship, confidence, judgment, perseverance, and integrity.
We wrote our lesson plans and activity guides with youth development professionals and volunteer leaders in mind. The First Tee DRIVE is a hole-in-one for any setting, class time, and class size.
Our lesson plans introduce youth to golf through activities that resemble sports they may already be familiar with, like baseball, football, bowling, and tennis. Instructors receive an activity guide that includes:
- 18 detailed activity plans
- Information section explaining teaching methods
- Safety and class management procedures
- Instructional cue cards
- Golf terms
