Mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
The First Tee of Hampton Roads is a chapter of the International Program of The First Tee and locally, a program of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads. It is a life skills and character education golf program, with a goal to serve 30,000 youth by 2015. The First Tee of Hampton Roads and the Y’s shared goal of helping youth reach their full potential has resulted in a partnership that helps our community grow and thrive.
At The First Tee of Hampton Roads, our main focus is on youth development through the game of golf. Unlike any other program, The First Tee of Hampton Roads teaches Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits that can be used on and off the course. Our hope is that children build self confidence and self esteem while developing the skills to become better citizens in the community. And, if they love the game of golf, that is a bonus! Golf, and the life skills gained through our program, can be practiced for a lifetime.
