Tee Up In Gym Class
Since 2004, First Tee has been integrating our program into PE classes in schools across the country. We’ve trained educators at more than 10,000 elementary schools across the nation to teach our curriculum, expanding our impact. By teaching elementary students First Tee’s Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits, we’re putting them on the course to a healthy and active lifestyle.
First Tee School Program gives physical educators all the tools to get started. We provide the training, equipment, and lesson plans that integrate life skills and values with the game of golf and motor skills. We have an online community for teachers and youth leaders delivering our program, providing access to the curriculum, resources, and connections with peers delivering the program around the country.
