First of Sarasota/Manatee seeks volunteers

The following is a press release from the First Tee:

As we enter into our fall 2011 programming, we will bring The First Tee's unique way of using the game of golf, its positive values and life skills education to the future leaders in Sarasota and Manatee.  We need your help.

We need positive role models to assist us in teaching The First Tee Life Skills to our children. You don't need to have any teaching ability, but well gladly take it if you have it.  You don't need to be an avid golfer or a PGA/LPGA pro but again we'll gladly accept that help, too.       

Can you talk to kids? Can you drive a golf cart?  Do you have a couple of hours per week or per month?  We are always in need of volunteers who love children and are positive role models.

Recently released research conducted on The First Tee Life Skills Experience shows that the impact our programs have on young people is substantial.

Young people in Sarasota and Manatee counties are not only learning and using life skills on the golf course, but more importantly, they also are transferring these skills to school (learning how to make a goal ladder) and other areas of their lives.

Please consider attending our Assistant Coaches Volunteer Training on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 12:30- 2:30 p.m. at Tatum Ridge Golf Links.  You will be introduced to The First Tee and an overview of our chapter, staff and board members.

We will also talk about The First Tee Life Skills, Certification, Coach Philosophy and how we delivery the program.  You will experience outdoor activities for the Player and Par programs.

We will go over lesson plans, good-better-how and the 2011/2012 program schedule.

Please e-mail me your name and phone number that you will be attending our training on Saturday, Sept. 24 by Thursday, Sept. 22.

The First Tee of Sarasota Manatee continues to reach young people in our community through programming at Tatum Ridge Golf Links, Rolling Green Golf Course and Serenoa Golf Club.  The incredible impact we are having would not be possible without the extraordinary help from individuals like you.

Thank you in advance for helping The First Tee of Sarasota/Manatee and I look forward to meeting you on Saturday, September 24th.

Executive Director
