More Than Just Golf
At First Tee – Colorado Rocky Mountains, we offer a wide variety of youth golf programs in Colorado. All of our programs are structured to teach core values, like sportsmanship, and educate players on a wide array of academic subjects. Youth participants learn valuable lessons including:
- The importance of maintaining a good attitude on and off the course;
- How to make important decisions by considering their potential outcomes;
- How to behave appropriately regardless of whether they win or lose at any given activity;
- And how to transfer the First Tee Nine Core Values (such as responsibility, honesty, etc.) from the golf course into everyday life.
Each First Tee program aims to have purposeful programming for every interaction. At First Tee – Colorado Rocky Mountains, we make serious efforts to maintain a high level of instructor retention so that the staff members can continue growing with the players and eventually see them through to college. Part of our vision is for every junior golf student to eventually carry a golf club in one hand and a degree in the other.
