The First Tee

“I’m very proud to be named as an ambassador for The First Tee of Greater Vancouver. The lessons that The First Tee teaches not only apply to the game of golf, but are also important life lessons that will serve Vancouver youth well in whatever career they choose. I’m looking forward to playing a role in sharing the game of golf, and The First Tee life lessons, with B.C. young people.”

Kids learn best when they are having fun. Whether it is learning to be honest while keeping score, perseverance when losing, or good judgment making the play, lessons learned while laughing stick long after the game is done.

The First Tee is where it all happens. Through the game of golf, youth ages 7-18 years learn the fundamental skills of the game as well as life-enhancing values. Classes led by qualified First Tee coaches help kids learn nine core values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy, and judgment. Values like these transfer to other aspects of life and help each young person achieve success in school, friendships, and eventually in the workforce and their own families.
