On Course Life Skills Program
More than a golf camp! 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.
No equipment is needed! Scholarships are available to cover registration costs.

What is the Cost?
Registration fees cover all classes in a session. For instance, if your child’s class is 6 classes long, that registration fee covers all 6 classes.
What happens if there is inclement weather or if my child can not attend a class?
Since golf is an outdoor sport, we have to dress for the weather which may include light rain or heat. We make every effort to hold all of our classes. Classes may be cancelled due to inclement or unsafe weather conditions. You will receive a text at least one hour prior to class time. There are no refunds for classes cancelled due to inclement weather. If more than two classes are cancelled, we will make every effort to hold one make up class at the end of the session.
If your child is going to miss a class, there is no make up classes. Our classes fill and we cannot allow for kids to join another classes. There are no refunds for classes not attended.
What does my child need wear or bring to class?
Students should arrive dressed for the weather and must wear sneakers or golf shoes. Collared polo-type shirts (tucked in) are preferred but not mandatory. Caps, sunscreen and bug spray are recommended.
A water bottle and a positive attitude is all that a child needs for class! After the first class, students will be given a yardage book. It is their responsibility to bring this to each class and to hold onto that book for each class/session while at that level. Replacement yardage books are available however a nominal fee may be charged.
What is the arrival/departure procedure?
Students should arrive 15 minutes prior to the class start time to check in, get their name tag in order to begin class on time. Parents should arrive just prior to the class end time to pick up their student. Please do your best to be prompt and respectful of everyone’s time.
How does my child advance to the next level?
After completing the recommended class hours and, becoming proficient in the life skills, golf skills and golf knowledge taught at a level, the coach may recommend a participant to attempt “certification” testing in order to progress to the next level. The child’s coach will speak with the child and their parent regarding certification and the next steps. Certification is typically held the week following the end of each session. At some levels, the coach may choose to hold certification during regularly schedule class time. At all levels, certification is comprised of written assessments on life skills and golf knowledge, a golf skills assessment and a playing requirement. If a student completes their certification requirements, they can then register for the next level class at their next session.
