Coach Spotlight: Meet Alisa Yamanaka

Categories: 2020, February, Newsletter

Meet Coach Alisa Yamanaka. She is a Software Engineer and an alumna of the University of Washington. Alisa joined our team as a volunteer coach in the Summer of 2019.  Since becoming a coach, she has made a positive impact on her participants and her fellow coaches. Her attention to detail, collaborative approach, and passion for giving back makes her a great coach and mentor.

Alisa believes, “There are a lot of parallels between golf and life, and TFTSV does a great job helping kids see and connect those parallels.” She currently coaches on Saturdays at Rancho Del Pueblo Golf Course. She shared, “I enjoy seeing a concept or skill click with a student and then watching their excitement grow.”

We are fortunate to have Alisa as a coach and appreciate her enthusiasm and drive to make our program a better place for everyone. Thank you Alisa and keep up the great work!

The deadline for Spring Coach training is Feb 15th. If you are interested in joining coaches like Alisa, please visit https://www.thefirstteesiliconvalley.org/ways-to-give/volunteer/
