The First Tee Life Skills Experience is divided into six primary stages.  Locally, our program supports two of these stages.  They are:

  • The PLAYer level ensures a foundational understanding of the game and life skills concepts, focusing on interpersonal and self-management skills, the Nine Core Values and how to use them effectively, and the principles of the game.  For all new players and core level for ages    7 - 9.
