The experience

“The First Tee has provided me with an opportunity to give back to the D.C. community. Each week I am fortunate enough to coach and interact with some of the greatest youth from around the area. I look forward to class to catch up with the kids and to ask them how their week has gone. It’s an incredible feeling to have a conversation with a participant and to continue that relationship from week to week. Their reactions are priceless when you can ask them how their test went or how they did in their sporting event that they had talked about weeks prior. Providing that friendship to the kids is truly incredible. Of all the greatness that is The First Tee my absolute favorite part of volunteering is when I’ve been working with a group for minutes, hours, weeks on a particular skill and I can tell that they have almost got it. Then, they step up to the ball and hit that perfect shot. The smiles on their faces when they turn and look at you for that approval and reassurance that they did it right is why I volunteer.”
