1. Girls build confidence:

Girls who play sports have greater levels of self-esteem, self-image and are less likely to use illicit drugs. Confidence comes through developing a sense of teamwork and learning how to set and achieve goals. Golf is the perfect platform for girls because anyone can play!

2. Girls form friendships:

Golf is a fantastic way for girls to build lasting relationships with others while experiencing competition in a fun, supportive environment.

3. Girls develop a strong work ethic:

Athletics require work – especially in a game like golf. One study reported 82% of women in executive-level jobs who played organized sports in middle, high or post-secondary school reported that sports helped them with leadership skills, teamwork, discipline and perseverance.

4. Girls strengthen perseverance:

And, of course by being involved with sports, girls learn how to keep playing when nothing seems to go right. To succeed in golf, players must continue through bad breaks and their own mistakes, while learning from past experiences – just like in life.

5. Girls have access to college scholarships:

Did you know that female college golf scholarships are unused each year? For many girls, the chance to fund or subsidize education is one of golf’s greatest benefits. Learn more about helping your daughter pursue a college golf career.

The First Tee programs can provide girls the platform they need to become high-achievers in their personal goals, boost their self-esteem and experience competition in a fun, supportive environment.

Many chapters offer programs geared exclusively for female junior golfers to help provide them with the confidence and skills to become tomorrow’s leaders and athletes for life.

  1. I was searching the internet for ways to help help a young friend of my grandchildren whom I have encountered bullying and wanted to help her. I came across The First Tee on line and must say that I am more than excited at the possibility of getting she and many other kids in our area involved. Where do I begin? The kids go to school in the West Brookfield Ma. area. Is this something that we would have to convince a school system of approving or are there places outside of the school that I could approach to get these young ladies involved? Your program sounds like every school and community would benefit tremendously from it.

  2. Thank you for your interest in The First Tee. You are correct – the program you are referring to at local elementary schools is The First Tee National School Program, which is a built into elementary physical education classes and not an after-school or summer camp program that students sign up for.

    You can either try to bring the program into the school (learn more and contact our team to get started: https://thefirsttee.org/programs/in-elementary-schools/)

    Or encourage her to get involved with a local chapter instead: https://thefirsttee.org/locations/
