Spring Session Lesson Plans

Spring lesson plans are now available!!!  Each program location has also been given a master lesson plan folder that contains all spring lesson plans, PLAYer through Eagle.  REMINDER: Games that are written into lesson plans are simply suggestions in case coaches have no other game ideas.  Coaches may alter lesson plans because of course conditions, practice area availability, or simply because they have a game idea that might be more fun.  The only elements of a lesson plan that should not be changed are the intended Core Values, Life Skills, and Healthy Habits. Aside from that, the primary responsibility of a coach at The First Tee is make sure the kids are safe and having fun!!!
