End of Year Newsletter
It's here! The day we've all been wishing for-the end of 2020 and the start of a new year. Here, at First Tee - Coastal Carolinas, we are excited for 2021 and getting our participants back in action and hopefully returning to "business as usual" in 2021. To all of our participants, parents, coaches, volunteers, donors and supporters- THANK YOU for your continued support of our programs so that we can continue to do the important work of Building Game Changers. Here's to 2021 and it being the best year yet. Happy and Healthy New Year from our First Tee family to yours! Cheers!

Welcome to Lady Leaders
Coach Cameryn has been hard at work coming up with an all new Girls Golf curriculum. This spring, the focus will be all about "Lady Leaders". Each week during class, a "Lady Leader" will come and talk (in person and on Zoom) to the girls in the class and highlight their profession. The girls can ask questions and interact with these awesome "Lady Leaders". We have a detective, a pilot, dentist and more lined up! More information and how to sign up will be included in our special programming newsletter later this month!
