Together We Can Provide Opportunity
First Tee – West Virginia has chosen to focus our annual campaign on the Clubs in Hands initiative. This campaign is working towards raising the necessary funds to establish the First Tee School Program in all West Virginia Elementary Schools.
The focus of First Tee – West Virginia is to give young people, ages 5-18, of all backgrounds an opportunity to develop, through golf, character education and life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. The Life Skills Experience is one of the unique features that separates our program from many other junior golf programs.
The First Tee School Program is currently implemented in over 170 schools across West Virginia, while our golf course program is taught at 8 locations statewide. Our goal is to establish the First Tee Program in every Elementary School and grow our golf course program. Together, with your support, you will help us reach our goal and provide opportunities for our youth to grow through our golf and character education program.
“Without the First Tee, I would not be where or who I am today. I will forever be grateful for the First Tee and the love for the game of golf it has given me. As a current collegiate golfer, I am thankful for the skills and lessons the First Tee provided me with, and am most thankful for the friendships the game of golf has allowed me to form!” – Emma Nicol
