2023 Spring Programs
2023 Spring Program registration is Open!
At First Tee – Greater Richmond, we are building game changers. Our spring First Tee Program is designed for players of all ages and skill levels, with classes meeting once a week for seven weeks.
With proven results, we aim to help kids become better versions of themselves while strengthening the character of our community. Teaching life lessons and leadership skills, sessions include a fun, group setting for youth ages 5 to 18 regardless of background or previous experience. Through golf and core values, participants will learn life skills such as resolving conflicts, setting goals, and planning for the future. Participants progress through different levels by demonstrating life skills and golf skills as well as passing assessments. Classes are as follows:
- Ages 5-6: Introduction to basic golf skills through fun games and developmentally-appropriate golf equipment.
- Ages 7-9: Participants will receive lessons that introduce and engage participants with both golf and life skills. Kids get active and play golf with their peers.
- Ages 10-11: Participants will receive lessons that support the exploration of both character and golf skills in active and collaborative ways.
- Ages 12-13: Participants will receive lessons that empower participants to explore both golf skills and character commitments through opportunities for mastery and growth.
- Ages 14+: Participants will receive lessons that help participants elaborate on their understanding and place a greater emphasis on their personal development.
The registration portal is now open! During registration, if there is no availability in your desired class, please join the waitlist so we can notify you if a spot opens!
Ages 5-6: $65 | Ages 7-17: $85
A founding purpose of First Tee is to make golf more accessible to all youth, particularly young people who otherwise may not have an opportunity to learn and play the game. Our policy is to provide access to programs regardless of a participant’s ability to play. Our financial aid program is funded by generous donors. Parents/guardians may apply for financial aid as part of the online registration process. Once you have applied for financial aid through the online registration, you will receive an email notification and can then complete the registration.
