Embracing a Healthy Family: Military Children Get in the Swing: Free Golf Instruction

Military Children Get in the Swing: Free Golf Instruction

Beginning in the New Year, The First Tee will offer golf instruction combined with character and life skills education to military children and to children of geographically separated National Guardsmen and Reservists. The initiative is made possible as part of a two-year agreement with the Department of Defense (DoD). The goal is to welcome at least 6,000 school-aged participants from military families to The First Tee program at no cost to families. Prior golf experience and equipment are not necessary.

Trained coaches and staff at over 200 Chapters of The First Tee offer a progression of lesson plans that create a fun and safe learning environment. The curriculum fosters curiosity about the game of golf and teaches how the positive values inherent in the game can be used at home, in school and in other areas of everyday life. New sessions start throughout the year and dates and times vary by location. Military families can sign up at The First Tee Chapter in their community or download a voucher. In addition, The First Tee will provide curriculum, equipment and training to 20 overseas bases located in Spain, Germany, Guam, Japan, South Korea, Cuba, Italy, and Puerto Rico.

For further information, Chapter locations or to download a voucher, families should visit http://www.thefirsttee.org/.
