Coach Misa – Working to provide Safety, Fun, and Inclusivity

Categories: 2021, Newsletter

Meet coach Misa Church. Misa joined our program as an Instructor in 2020 and is a graduate of First Tee – Contra Costa, serving on their leadership council and as an alumni coach.

Misa is currently studying at San Jose State University and played for their collegiate golf team in 2019. Misa is a wonderful addition to our team bringing experience, knowledge, care, and drive to the role. Misa is well versed in the First Tee curriculum and has an ability to seamlessly deliver the core lessons while building relationships and creating a welcoming environment for all.

“We are fortunate and grateful to have Coach Misa on our program staff,” says Program Director, Chris Moreno-Hunt. “Misa has been able to adapt quickly to our team, has excelled in making learning fun and engaging, and has already made a big contribution to our coaching. In addition, our coaches and parents/guardians speak highly of Misa’s coaching and character.”

“First Tee – Silicon Valley means to me that there is a safe space in this world where I get to teach important life skills to young players,” says Misa.  “Coaching with FTSV has given me the opportunity to strengthen my skills as a coach and learn how to navigate and create new relationships with each student and point them in the right direction to help them achieve their short and long-term goals. I am reminded every week of the inclusivity that FTSV has and am proud to be part of this organization.”

Great work Misa!
