The First Tee of Greater Sacramento
After School Program

The After School Program is a class that offers something for all ages and abilities!  All golf skills and fundamentals are covered, along with the many life skills within The First Tee curriculum, The First Tee Nine Core Values™ and specific athletic movement stations that help to develop a healthy and athletic child.

It is important to note that many stations are set up for each golf skill that have a specific purpose to help the golfer learn and improve; children will rotate through these stations after a particular amount of time (based upon the age group) until they have completed all stations.   Coaches participate in contests with the golfers as well, in an effort to build a sense of team during their time in class.  Stations and contests can be adjusted quickly depending upon where the child is their development path.

After School Programs are offered at many of our locations,
