Meet & Greet: Coach Khaalis Hall  

This month, we're catching up with Level 1 Coach Khaalis Hall, one of the newest additions to our team here at The First Tee of Howard County, along with his wife and fellow Level 1 Coach, Khalilah. 
Q: Tell me about some of the most significant lessons you learned from coaching. 

A: Don't talk so much and let the kids perform. They are here to learn, play, golf and enjoy their peers -- not to listen to me give a speech. I've learned to teach, demo and get out of the way.

Did You Know: Our Philosophy on Coaching

Without caring mentors, positive youth development just doesn't happen. At The First Tee, we take coaching seriously. We believe that a meaningful, quality relationship between coach and participant is vital to our program.

Developed with input from leading experts in the field of positive youth development, our coach training program focuses on empowering participants through decision-making and exploring options. This helps foster positive relationships between coaches and young people, inspiring the golfers of tomorrow to look to the future, set goals, and unlock their potential.

Coaches working through The First Tee Coach Program choose their own level of involvement. The program includes the following levels:
  • Assistant Coach
  • The First Tee Coach-in-Training (Level I, II, III)
  • The First Tee Coach
  • The First Tee Master Coach

If you're interested in becoming a coach with The First Tee of Howard County, we'd love to hear from you. Being a golf pro is not a prerequisite -- we provide all the training you need.
