Stop by one of The First Tee of Utah’s programs and you’re likely to see kids ranging in age from 7 to 17, smacking golf balls and attempting to improve their driving, chipping, or putting. Some are able to launch beautiful shots, 150 yards out on the range, while others struggle to connect club and ball, hitting the turf just as often as hitting the ball.
But the programs at The First Tee of Utah not only teach kids golf skills; more importantly, we help kids learn the skills that will help them be successful in life – things like confidence, sportsmanship, and integrity.
The kids come for different reasons. Some want to try a new sport, others have been watching mom or dad golf for years and are eager to pick up the family sport. Regardless of their motivation to join, these kids leave the program as better people because of their exposure to character values and life skills that are intentionally integrated into each lesson.
Love Utah Give Utah Donors help us reach more Utah Kids
Love Utah Give Utah is a day for Utahns of all backgrounds to join in a day of giving. Hosted by the Community Foundation of Utah, this event is dedicated to supporting the local Utah nonprofits that are important to our community.
One of our goals in 2016 was to take our program to the Rose Park area. Thanks to the generosity of Love Utah Give Utah supporters last year, that goal became a reality! Our life skills and character-values focused programs are now in the Guadalupe School in the Rose Park neighborhood of Salt Lake City.
This year we are expanding our programs to reach Utah kids in Park City and Logan, hoping to impact even more Utah kids. It’s a labor of love for us to work with kids and see them become better golfers while also grasping essential values like integrity, perseverance, and courtesy.
We hope that this year you’ll join in supporting The First Tee of Utah either through a donation on our webpage below or through a donation on our Love Utah Give Utah page.
