Tee Up In Gym Class

In elementary schools in our community and across the United States, students are teeing off for the first time thanks to The First Tee National School Program, bringing our curriculum to your child during physical education class. By teaching elementary students The First Tee’s Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits, we’re putting them on the course to a healthy and active lifestyle.

The First Tee of Shawnee County has three sets of National Schools Program equipment and many elementary school teachers in USD 501 are already trained and certified to offer the curriculum.  Ask your child’s gym teacher if they’re participating, and, if not, please pass along our interest in helping them.  NSP is a great way for your child to get a beginning “taste” of The First Tee.

Lesson Plan

The First Tee National School Program gives gym teachers and physical educators the tools to get started. We provide the training, junior golf lesson plans, and equipment.
