The First Tee Certification Process has three major elements: completion of golf and life skills lessons, the playing requirement, and the short written assessment. If a participant is having difficulty with any of these elements, coaches will help review the material and let him or her try again. Each of the assessment forms state the specific score required to pass the golf and life skills section at PLAYer, Par, Birdie, and Eagle level.
At each program level, participants will complete a minimum of six life skills and six golf skills lessons. For life skills, the requirement is to complete the core lesson material. Completion of optional topics and activities are a plus, but not mandatory. If any participant misses a core lesson, the material must be made up, either through one-on-one instruction or a makeup class, before he or she undergoes assessment certification.
To be arranged with TFTSN Staff.
For life skills and golf skills, each participant is given a short written assessment consisting of true-false, multiple choice, or matching questions. Where possible, coaches will administer the assessments for golf skills and life skills at the same time.
Assessment Days are held about once a month at various locations throughout the valley. Listed below are the 2012 Assessment Days:
