The First Tee National School Program introduces the game of golf,  The First Tee Nine Core Values, and The Nine Healthy Habits to elementary students during physical education courses. This school golf program creates an environment where young people are introduced to the lifelong sport, while learning the basic golf motor skills and inherent values of the game.

Currently, The First Tee of Greater Sacramento has introduced the program to more than 15 elementary schools in the Sacramento Unified School and Galt School Districts; reaching over 8,000 students.  We are expanding this program to reach over 15,000 students in the 2014-2015 school year.
