In addition, all employees, coaches, volunteers and board members will be required to complete the SafeSport training program.

SafeSport Act Compliance

First Tee is committed to fully complying with all elements of The Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and SafeSport Authorization Act of 2017 (the “Act”), which was enacted to curtail and prevent abuse found at various youth sports organizations by elevating the standard of care by which sports organizations must act. As part of its compliance efforts associated with the Act, First Tee adopted the following SafeSport Policy for itself and all chapters.
