Why should you get involved?
The First Tee of Phoenix offers an opportunity for young people to experience positive social interaction with their peers in safe places surrounded by caring adults. The experiences they have will have positive outcomes within our communities.
For $100 you can fund a child for 1 year of programming
The First Tee of Phoenix is seeking support for the following:
- Additional Programming Locations: Increasing the opportunity for young people to experience positive social interaction with their peers in safe places surrounded by caring adults will have positive outcomes within our communities.
- The First Tee National School Program: The First Tee of Phoenix is currently impacting almost 100,000 youth each year through The National School Program where we train PE teachers to use The First Tee curriculum in their schools. This school program creates an environment where young people are introduced to a lifelong sport while learning the basic golf motor skills and the inherent values of the game.
- The First Tee DRIVE Program: The First Tee of Phoenix has introduced a program for youth development professionals working with children enrolled in Phoenix area After School programs. Valley wide YMCA’s, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Elementary School Programs have adopted this program to introduce the game of golf through traditional sport modification by incorporating the four basic golf shots: putt, chip, pitch, and full swing. Currently 5000 children are impacted through the DRIVE curriculum.
Our family feels blessed to be a part of The First Tee of Phoenix; as it is beyond a doubt, the best youth development program we know.

Class tonight was great as always. The children identify with you very much. It is a gift you have. I have learned so much from volunteering with The First Tee.
