Coach Rob – Making a Difference for 20 Years

Categories: 2021, Newsletter

Meet Coach Rob Sisco. He officially joined our First Tee – Silicon Valley coaching staff in 2014. However, Rob’s connection to FTSV extends all the way back to our origins and the Eagles at Rancho Junior Golf Program in 2000. (Eagles became First Tee – San Jose in 2005.) Both of his sons participated in Eagles and then our program through high school, so Rob certainly understands FTSV both as a coach and as a parent.

“FTSV changed my life,” says Coach Rob. “Understanding how much the juniors look up to the coaches and how much of an effect we have on their lives. Spending time on the course with the participants is something I look forward to every week. The highlight of my day is when I see a participant hitting a great shot, smiling and feeling like they are succeeding. I enjoy helping the participants succeed in life and golf and I know these skills will help them become successful adults.”

Coach Rob has been a committed, impactful, and skilled coach. He has attended the national trainings, coached many of our FTSV levels, and delivered values, mentoring, and instruction to hundreds of participants. “Rob has been an active coach every year, and every season bringing a high level of knowledge to his students and to our team,” says Program Director, Chris Moreno-Hunt. “Coach Rob has positively impacted so many individuals (participants and coaches) over his years of service. His love for the game and the values that the game espouses shines through in his coaching and is infectious. We are grateful to have Coach Rob on our team!”

“I am deeply appreciative of Coach Rob’s dedication to FTSV and its participants.” says President & CEO, George Maxe. “Rob is one of the key individuals surrounding FTSV and Rancho del Pueblo Golf Course who provide perspective and continuity because of his presence for more than 20 years.”
