- For Safety reasons, class sizes are limited to EIGHT students per class. Please sign up for the class day/time you prefer your child to be registered for. Add your name to the wait-list if the class is full and we will use that information to open up more classes as needed.
Safety: The Safety of your child is our most pressing concern and we will be taking multiple precautions to keep all First Tee families, Coaches, Volunteers and Staff healthy. Please read through the entire FTCV safety plan for reopening: FTCV Parent Handbook with Safety Protocols
Little Linksters: Participants Ages 4-6: Due to COVID-19 we will NOT be holding any Little Linksters Classes for the Fall Session. We hope to start these classes again during the Winter session. If you have a session credit, it will carry over to the next session your child participates in.
If your child is turning 7 years old prior to October 12th, please enroll for a PLAYer 3 class.
If you have questions regarding Assessments/Certifications, please take a look at the Assessment/ Certification Document . Please remember that the First Tee recommends that every child stays at each level of the program (i.e. PLAYer level, Par Level, etc.) for at least TWO (2) years before moving to subsequent levels.
Par/Birdie/Eagle Participants: Certifications for these levels will be scheduled over the Winter break. Please enroll your child in their current level for the Fall Session.
NEW PARTICIPANTS: please enroll them according to age:
PLAYer 3: ages 7-8
PLAYer 6: ages 9-11
PLAYer 9 ages 12 & up)
LPGA/USGA Girls Golf : These classes will be offered as supplemental classes to our First Tee – Coachella Valley Life Skills Classes. Your participant must be enrolled in a Life Skills Class (I.E. PLAYer, Par, Birdie, Eagle) to be able to participate in these fun Girl Only classes. For more information about these popular classes CLICK HERE!
COST: Due to COVID-19 and the loss of the Spring session, we will be extending a one (1) session credit to those who were enrolled in the FTCV program last year. If you are an active member of First Tee – Coachella Valley, please register for your class at no cost.
If your child is not an active member (membership expired in February/March of 2020) this session will be $65. You can complete payment over the phone with Executive Director Teal Guion: TGuion@FTCV.org , or call The Golf Center to leave a message 760-779-1877.
Moving forward, First Tee – Coachella Valley is moving to a “Per Session” payment program. The cost per Session is $65 per student. There is an Annual Membership opportunity for $200 per Student, which includes all four (4) Sessions during the year (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer). In addition, there are Military and Sibling Discounts available and as always, any family can apply for financial aid through the FTCV.org website during enrollment.
