Coach Spotlight: Meet Jack Bachofer

Categories: 2020, Newsletter

Jack Bachofer joined our volunteer coaching team as a volunteer in the Summer of 2018 and recently became an instructor (employee) in the Spring of 2020. He has been a credentialed middle school math teacher for 11 years and has over 18 years of teaching experience.

Coach Jack has an ability to reach participants in a unique way. The experience he has gained as a middle school teacher helps him connect our core lessons and life skills through story-telling. Students are able to relate to his examples and connect the dots between school experiences and the First Tee core lessons.

Jack gives his full effort to the students and to our program. Since he has been with us, he has committed himself to absorbing our coach resources and to combining our coach philosophy with his teaching tools. In Jack’s words, “FTSV encourages personal growth and responsibility in a FUN way among friends and caring coaches in a sport that can last a lifetime.”

We are lucky to have him on our team as his passion for teaching mixed with his compassion for others makes him a positive role model for not just our participants but for our coaches as well.
