LIFE SKILLS EXPERIENCE CLASS INFORMATION

Life Skills Experience classes are offered year-round in the winter, spring, summer and fall at facilities across our region. Our Life Skills Experience classes are made up of character building and life skill development activities, learning golf rules and etiquette, learning how to warm-up properly and be healthy, and doing it all while learning to play golf. Participants who are new to the program should enroll in PLAYer Level classes. Participants will advance through each level once they meet the certification requirements for their level. A brief but mandatory orientation session will be conducted for new parents on the first day of classes (currently not doing these in-person, please visit Parent Resources page).

CLASS LEVELS

Junior Links. This non-certifying level is for participants ages 5 & 6 years old only and focuses on growing curiosity for the game of golf by introducing basic skills through fun activities. (Limited classes offered during Winter session)
PLAYer. Entry level for participants who are at least 7 years old. Learn the game of golf and First Tee’s Nine Core Values – the building blocks for subsequent levels.
PLAYer 12 & Older. Entry level class for participants age 12 and older. This class will join a Par class and combine the Life Lessons in Par with First Tee’s Nine Core Values.
Par. Participants will focus on lessons in self-management and interpersonal skills both on and off the course. Recommended minimum age of 9.
Birdie. This level focuses on setting a variety of goals and turning them into reality. Recommended minimum age of 11.
Eagle. During this level, participants learn about resilience, conflict resolution, and planning for the future. Recommended minimum age of 13.
ACE. Participants put it all together and hone in on setting goals, career education, and giving back to the community. Required minimum age of 14 or going into 9th grade.

Every participant in the program is eligible to receive a set of starter clubs for $10. This is a one-time fee that is paid during the registration process. As participants outgrow their clubs they may trade-in for longer clubs as they continue in the program at no cost. Parents also have the option to purchase a new set of TGA clubs online at a discounted price. Visit the Parent Resources page for more info.

Maximum class sizes may vary based on location. Enrollment is on a first-come first-served basis. You will only be able to enroll for one class in which you are eligible to take. If you are registering during a current session, you will only be able to register for the class level that you are currently enrolled in. Once a participant has successfully completed certification, they will be able to enroll in the next level up.
