The First Tee of Tampa Bay Learning Center At Rogers Park Now Open

On March 14th, the Tampa Bay community was invited to join the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA, The First Tee of Tampa Bay, and Tampa Sports Authority for the grand opening of the YMCA’s The First Tee of Tampa Bay Learning Center at Rogers Park. Through an agreement with the City of Tampa, the YMCA’s renovations at Rogers Park include conversion of the 3,000 square-foot former clubhouse into a learning center that houses The First Tee program and provides recreational space for youth in the community. Participants in The First Tee program will have access to the Rogers Park driving range, three-hole practice area, and championship golf course.

The curriculum will include Life Skills Programming with Par, Birdie, Eagle and Ace certification levels, Saturday instructional classes, tournaments, summer camps, after school programs and enrichment tutoring programs.

The facility renovations were made possible through the generous support of Clark Construction. “Clark Construction Group, LLC, including our subcontractors and suppliers, appreciates the opportunity and is proud to have participated alongside the Tampa Sports Authority, Rogers Park Golf Course and the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA in support of The First Tee Tampa Bay,” said Eric Mudge of Clark Construction.

The Rogers Park site will also host school partnership programs with Franklin Middle School, Brooks-DeBartolo Collegiate High School and Academy Prep. Other targeted groups who will participate in The First Tee programming at Rogers Park include local Boys and Girls Club sites, Parks and Recreation groups, local schools, and community church youth groups. In addition to targeted group programming, the learning center at Rogers Park will provide the opportunity for individual youth in the community to participate in player development programs, mentoring programs and The First Tee Life Skills Experience through programs offered on Saturdays, after school, and during the summer.
