The First tee Network meeting 2017
This biennial event brings together representatives from our network of 155 chapters for education, networking and guest speakers to help them implement best practices and deepen their impact in their communities. There were more than 900 representatives in attendance from The First Tee chapters as we celebrated our 20th Anniversary.
The First Tee Future Leaders and Achievers Summit
Two of our Eagle level participants were among just 28 from around the country selected to attend this month’s The First Tee Network Meeting in Orlando. They had a great week of education, explored ideas with others, and came back inspired and ready to dive into initiatives of their own for 2018!
Kayla Tounalom started playing in the program at age 6 in the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf classes at Jefferson Park Golf Course. Now at age 14, Kayla will be developing a plan to grow the game for the next generation of girls by connecting all ages of female golfers with a fun, special event next year.
Isis Beauregard-Coaxum plays on the Garfield High School golf team and sees that many of her peers could enjoy and benefit from learning the game but have never tried it, so she is planning social gatherings to bring more teenagers to the course.
Stay tuned for their progress on these exciting endeavors!
The First Tee Alumni Summit
We are so proud of our very own alumni Jessica Kent, who was one of just 12 young adults from around the country selected to attend this week’s The First Tee Network Meeting in Orlando!
Jessica joined The First Tee of Greater Seattle in 2006 and received many local and national honors in her 7 years as a participant, and now she continues to make an impact on our community by giving back and inspiring those around her to reach their potential on and off the course.
Combining her passion for golf and entrepreneurial spirit, Jessica also helped develop a team at the University of Washington to innovate and launch the GolfScope training aid.
Way to go, Jessica!
