National Schools Program

The First Tee National Schools Program (NSP) introduces the game of golf and The First Tee Nine Core Values™ and Nine Healthy Habits to elementary students during physical education classes. Currently in more than 5,000 elementary and middle schools nationwide, the National Schools Program creates an environment where young people are introduced to the benefits of a lifelong sport while learning the basic golf motor skills and the inherent values of the game. Schools who participate in the program receive professional development training along with age-appropriate materials, junior golf lesson plans, and equipment for effective implementation into their existing physical education programs.  The NSP Program Objectives are to:  

  • Provide a comprehensive golf program designed especially for physical education programs in school settings
  • Enable physical educators to introduce golf consistent with national standards developed by NASPE
  • Develop student appreciation for the positive personal and social values associated with the game with each lesson
  • Engage students in daily lesson activities that lead to motor skill development
  • Present golf to students as a lifelong recreation and physical fitness activity
