The First Tee is successful because of the thousands of adults who volunteer their time to working with young people. Assistant coaches don’t need to be great golfers—or even golfers at all. A trained LEAD COACH does the instruction in class, then assistant coaches work with groups of four or five children, practicing those skills. We strive to have a coach for every four participants. If you might be interested in assisting with The First Tee at Three Lakes, please email Lynn Miller, Wenatchee Valley Coordinator at TheFirstTeeWenatchee@gmail.com.
The First Tee philosophy is based on the belief that the golf and its inherent values can provide something to everyone, and no child is ever turned away for inability to pay. Your generous donations make it possible for deserving children from all walks of life to have the opportunities and experiences that The First Tee provides.
