Certification Program Schedule

First Tee is moving to Age-Based programming. What does this mean and how will it affect your child?
  • The strong recommendation to move to this structure results from research done by experts in youth development and sports psychology, as well as feedback from coaches, parents, and kids.
  • Participants strongly prefer being with their own age group and the chance to be in classes with their friends, and to make friends within their own age group.
  • Kids will learn more from programs designed appropriately based on their cognitive development.We will no longer use levels (PLAYer, PAR, Birdie, Eagle) to determine placement.
  • Students will register and be placed in a program based on their age. Tri-Cities age groupings will be 7-9, 10-12, and 13+
