First Tee’s Child Safety Policy
Every First Tee chapter is dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for every individual involved. Part of this commitment is making sure everyone who works with your child has completed a thorough background check. In addition, all employees, coaches, volunteers, and board members are required to complete the Safe Sport training program. Child safety in sports is at the core of our programming and is one of our biggest focuses when organizing golf lessons and golf events in Denver.
Safe Sport Act Compliance
First Tee is committed to fully complying with all elements of The Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 (the “Act”), which was enacted to curtail and prevent abuse found at various youth sports organizations by elevating the standard of care by which sports organizations must act. As part of our compliance efforts associated with the Act, First Tee chapters across the country have adopted the following Safe Sport Policy.
First Tee recognizes that individuals may be reluctant to report an allegation of misconduct, which is why we strive to remove as many barriers to reporting as possible. As such, anonymous reports may be sent via email to the following address: [email protected].
First Tee is committed to maintaining child safety in sports in every way possible. The Parent Safe Sport toolkit gives you the necessary Safe Sport Information for your athlete and is broken up by age group specific to your child.
