The First Tee has offered me the experience to learn the Core Values of life through the education of golf. I am truly grateful for everything they have given me, whether golf lessons or life lessons. I am more knowledgable about living life with an attitude of confidence, preserverence, and an attitude of integrity. Not only that, but I have also been working for The First Tee for the past couple of summers and have gained leadership from working and teaching kids in the classes.

The opportunity provided by The First Tee of Denver golf program the students of Loyola Catholic Elementary School has been beneficial to their development. We have 22 students who are participating in the Read and Swing program. This program has increased their reading levels and most improtantly their grades have improved. They are learning how important it is to focus not only in the classroom but also on the golf course. Each student recognizes that they are responsible for their actions on and off the course and take responsibility for their behavior. The program has taught them to respect each other and themselves. The coaches have been fantastic and a bond has been formed with the students as they look to the coaches for guidance .
