Categories: 2020, Newsletter

The First Tee of Silicon Valley would like to wish our 2020 class a big congratulations on their high school graduation! We are proud of who they are, and what they have accomplished in and out of the classroom. They have been involved with TFTSV between 4-11 years, excelling as participants, and giving back as volunteer coaches. Although we are sad to see them go, we are excited for what lies ahead. Good luck class of 2020. We are proud of you!

The participants above progressed through our program and either participated in the Eagle or the Ace levels. The Eagle level is our second highest level in our program (4 of 5). Eagle participants refine their golf playing skills with emphasis course management and ball flight, learn to develop their leadership skills, and utilize cooperative and collaborative communication strategies. They also learn to build healthy mental and physical habits, and explore what it means to appreciate diversity. The Ace level is the top level in the program. Ace participants take a series of (4) 8-week projects that focuses on career development, post high school education preparation/exploration, volunteerism, and advanced mental and physical golf training. Making it through our program takes commitment, perseverance, and consistent demonstration of the First Tee Nine Core Values. We look forward to the participants taking what they learned and using the core values to make the world a better place.
