Our programs give kids a safe place to grow with coaches trained to create supportive environments and who help them navigate challenges during golf lessons but more importantly, off the course. Kids take the lessons they learn in the program with them into everything they do. Through our personal growth and junior golf programs, we see kids’ self-confidence grow tremendously, inspiring more active participation in leadership opportunities and events, community involvement, and college scholarships.

Parent/Guardian Evaluation Form

First Tee – Connecticut is seeking feedback from parents and participants within all of our programs.  In order to keep improving the quality of our programs we need your feedback on not only the good, but also the bad.  The First Tee nationally has created a system for gathering feedback known as “Good, Better, How” that is utilized within our chapter.  The “Good” would represent things that you consider positive about the program and the “Better” would represent anything that you consider negative or in need of improvement in the program.  For all “Better” comments please provide any feedback or suggestions you may have, this represents the “How.”

He had so much fun last summer and fall and would really like to continue in the spring at the next level.  Thank you so much for everything, what a wonderful program!  – Parent of a First Tee – Connecticut Participant

First Tee Parents’ Guide

At First Tee, we believe in developing experiences that are just as fun as they are meaningful, where kids feel excited to grow, safe to fail, and better equipped for whatever comes their way next.

Our First Tee coaches seamlessly integrate the game of golf with a life skills curriculum to create active learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence and resilience. As your child progresses through our programs, the activities and life lessons will help empower them to take on whatever comes their way next.

Flip through our Parents’ Guide to see the wide-ranging and ever-growing education, life, leadership and golf opportunities for participants.
