New Age-Based Program

As we prepare to begin registration for our Spring Session, we ask that you take a few moments to learn about some changes to the First Tee Program for 2023.

First Tee was founded nationally in 1997, and after 25 years of impact, is embarking on an exciting evolution. Now in our 20th anniversary year in the Greater Seattle area, and a leading chapter in the network, we are thrilled to be a part of this journey.
