Tee Up In Gym Class

In elementary schools in our community and across the United States, many students are teeing off for the first time thanks to First Tee's School Program, bringing our curriculum to your child’s gym during physical education class. By teaching elementary students First Tee’s Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits, we’re putting them on the course to a healthy and active lifestyle. https://www.youtube.com/embed/eLUKN26AeA8
