First Tee DRIVE
In Youth Centers: After-School Programs
We believe our values extend beyond the golf course, which is why we launched a program to meet kids where they spend time.
First Tee DRIVE is the perfect activity for kids because it Develops Rewarding, Inspiring Values for Everyone.
Specifically designed for youth-serving organizations, like the Y and the Boys & Girls Club, First Tee DRIVE gives kids the chance to learn about golf and develop character through fun golf games.
How 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, First Tee DRIVE is designed to introduce kids to golf and First Tee Nine Core Values — honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment.
Our Program Objectives
- Enable youth leaders to introduce golf using modified sports and games in ways that fit the ages and abilities of the young people in their care
- Engage young people in fun, safe activities that promote wellness and health-enhancing lifestyles
- Develop appreciation for the positive values associated with golf through each activity and extend those behaviors to other areas of their lives
COMPONENTS OF THE PROGRAM
First Tee DRIVE gives youth development professionals and volunteer leaders the tools to get started. Our program is a hole-in-one for any setting, class time, and class size. We provide training, equipment and lesson plans.
