Specifically written for coaches and volunteers at youth-serving organizations, The First Tee DRIVE is a set of 18 golf activity plans designed to provide a fun, engaging program which introduces kids to golf and exposes them to the behaviors associated with The First Tee’s Nine Core Values. The activity plans are designed in a way that allows for indoor and outdoor set up to fit a variety of locations such as gymnasiums, basketball courts, baseball, football, and soccer fields.
Using modified golf equipment, kids are exposed to these core value behaviors through games and sports they may already be familiar with, such as baseball, football, bowling and tennis; however, these games are modified to incorporate the four basic golf shots – putt, chip, pitch, and full swing.
The First Tee of North Florida is proud to connect with new families by providing fun booth-style activities for children at various events throughout the community. Just a few of the events we partnered with in 2019 include:
- Orange Park Kids Fest
- Viva La Fiesta
- Ancient City Kids Day
- NAS Jax Fall Festival
- Jacksonville Science Festival
- St. Johns County School District Character Cup
- Deland High School Fact Fair
If you host or know of a community event that would like to have an additional activity for the young people in attendance, let us know!
