ACE – Game-Planning For The Future

Join our Ace Program!  Ace is an additional capstone program built for teens to help them game-plan what’s next. It integrates the skills and inner strengths they’ve developed at First Tee and points them toward exploring, investing in, and building a clear plan and assets for their next step. In 2024, there will be 7-10 “ACE Days” that will take place during a day off of school where students will gather to complete projects and play golf. This is a program that is a benefit to your eligible students and is in addition to your already existing First Tee program. Students must be 16 years old and an active participant in our program for at least 3 years. Please visit our registration website.

We are continuing our golf programs with Special Olympics at Topgolf Pompano. Special Olympics athletes and families enjoy the program taught by coaches Robert Ferzoco and Greg Mingo.

Two more 4-week Special Olympics programs have been approved and scheduled for the fall at Topgolf Pompano.

Elise Selected To The U.S. Naval Academy

We are so proud to announce that Chapter student Elise Mucklow has been selected to participate in the U.S. Naval Academy Summer Seminar.  Elise is an 11th grade student in Coach’s Glen’s class at Commons Golf Learning Center.

During the six-day session, she will become a part of the Academy. She will live in Bancroft Hall (the dormitory all midshipmen live in), participate in academic and leadership workshops, and experience a variety of other activities on the campus. The Summer Seminar serves as a preliminary application to the Naval Academy.

The United States Naval Academy is a federal service academy in Annapolis, Maryland. It was established in 1845.  The Naval Academy is the second oldest of the five U.S. service academies and it educates midshipmen for service in the officer corps of the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps.
