Through a partnership between The First Tee and the International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA), teen participants are selected to attend a week-long training at the IJGA in Hilton Head, S.C.
Around 50 teens will be eligible to attend from chapters of The First Tee at a discounted rate. Participants receive instruction on all aspects of the golf game from IJGA instructors, as well as:
- mental training
- fitness training
- college placement sessions
- components from The First Tee Life Skills curriculum
Evenings include fun activities such as trips to the beach, laser tag, movies, kayaking and a dolphin cruise.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
The First Tee home office will not hold a formal application process for this event in 2018. Participants with the desire to attend, can register through the IJGA directly. For more information about attending, please contact your chapter.
