What’s New in 2023?
First Tee’s signature Life Skills curriculum is undergoing a refresh and First Tee – Massachusetts gets to be a big part of it! You’ll notice starting this year that our usual Life Skills Experience classes are now age-based, regardless of skill or current level in the program. But don’t worry! Participants will still be learning life enhancing skills and working on key aspects of their golf game – just packaged a little differently! And for those participants who have worked so hard to level up in the program, their levels still matter! We will still be tracking hours in levels, working in yardage books, and challenging our participant’s golf skills, and knowledge of the game and life skills lessons. The certification process will simply occur throughout the session rather than during a single week at the end of each session.
At each age group, participants engage with the 5 Key Commitments: Pursuing Goals, Growing through Challenge, Collaborating with Others, Building Positive Self-Identity, and Using Good Judgement, while focusing on mastering golf fundamentals and building upon a golf skill foundation as they advance within the program.
- Be active and have fun with peers in a safe and encouraging manner
- Build inner strength and self-confidence
- Learn to play golf
- Focus on building relationships with other players while exploring the game of golf
- Explore character concepts in active and collaborative ways that are valuable on and off the course
- Develop golf skills and enthusiasm for the game
- Support positive Game Changing behaviors in fun and meaningful ways
- Explore both golf skills and characters commitments while having fun with peers
- Provide opportunities to demonstrate mastery and growth in golf skills and abilities
- Support growth and development of early adolescents
- Build character and support personal development
- Develop additional golf skills and abilities
- Look toward their future and plan their own paths
- Evaluate, reflect, and apply their understanding of life and golf skills to new situations on and off the course
We look forward to this new chapter in the First Tee experience and can’t wait to watch our participants grow!
