Congratulations to Tyler Mistretta, our first student to complete First Tee ACE certification. ACE certification is the highest level a participant can achieve at First Tee. After completing the first four levels of certification, PLAYer, Par, Birdie, and Eagle, participants have the option of working towards this final step in the program.
Students will become ACE-certified by completing four projects that will help them build a foundation in higher education and for a career. The four projects are:
• Community Service: Participants learn the value of giving back by volunteering for activities at First Tee or in the community.
• Career: Participants explore their interests and skills, matching them with career possibilities.
• College: Participants explore issues related to college selection and educational alternatives.
• Golf: Participants examine their golf skills, create an improvement plan, and assess the role they want golf to play in their lives.
Tyler completed all the ACE requirements in June before heading to college to play golf at Florida Southern located in Lakeland.
“It was a lot of work, but a great accomplishment to get this done,” said Tyler. “Students should start early as it takes a few years to complete the ACE requirements.”
