In 2021 First Tee – Treasure Coast partnered with Big Brother’s Big Sisters and their Community Based Mentor Program to offer golf and Life Skills classes. BBBS serves young people from age five through young adulthood in one-to-one mentoring friendships. Bigs and Littles hang out 2-3 times a month for a few hours doing normal everyday activities, homework, playing games, going out to eat, or just hanging out.
Our Chapter is offering a Life Skills program as an enrichment activity for Community Bigs to attend with their Littles, once a month. We designed the class so that participants will take part in games and drills which will teach the basics of golf and build on each skill set over the course of three golf clinics. Both Bigs and Littles will receive instruction from a First Tee trained coach from putting skills to full-swing and course playing strategies. Participants will also be learning the Nine Core values of the First Tee curriculum and how to use them in golf and in life.
The first session was Saturday, October 9th with Coach Steven Adrade at Champions of Summerfield. 5 Bigs and 6 Littles enjoying golf class and pizza!
