First Tee Returns with a Fall Golf Program for Kids! Financial Assistance Available

With the success of the earlier First Tee Program, I am happy to announce that there will be a Fall First Tee Program for Kids in the Kitchener-Waterloo area!

First Tee is a grassroots youth development program that serves the purpose of breaking down barriers between the sport of golf and children from equity-deserving and underrepresented communities. First Tee – Canada strives to make the sport of golf in Canada better reflect the multiculturalism of our country, introducing children of all backgrounds to the sport in a variety of accessible ways. First Tee programs are made accessible as they are offered at little to no cost at participating golf facilities, and all equipment is provided for the participants during the sessions. The First Tee Program uses golf as a vehicle to teach children life skills such as respect, integrity, honestly, and leadership. This program is for beginners of golf and focuses on fundamental skills, so the participants do not need any prior knowledge of the sport to join!


GolfPlay Inc. (an indoor golf simulator facility located at 80 Lodge St. in Waterloo) is running a six-week First Tee Fall Program, beginning on Saturday, October 14th and ending with the last session on Saturday, November 18th. This six-week program will run on Saturdays from 9:00am-10:00am and is available to 12 participants ages 7 to 13. GolfPlay’s First Tee Program costs $120 total ($20 per session), with financial assistance available to those who need it.
