Our programs

First Tee – Tennessee in Knoxville uses golf to teach youth life lessons and leadership skills. Our programs include a fun, group setting for youth ages 4-18 regardless of their background or golf experience. Though the First Tee Life Skills Experience (LSE) and the Nine Core Values, your kids and teens will learn life skills like:

  • Making proper introductions
  • Managing emotions
  • Conflict resolution
  • Step-by-step goal setting
  • Planning for the future
  • Appreciating diversity

Knoxville’s LSE program is divided into four levels, starting at Par for new participants and progressing though Birdie, Eagle and Ace. At each level the LSE is seamlessly integrated with all golf skill curricula.
