National Opportunities for First Tee of Central Iowa Participants

Involvement in the First Tee provides unique opportunities for participants. These opportunities have been created to recognize various achievements through golf skills, life skills and education. Modifications have been made throughout the past several years to encourage teenage retention and progression among the chapter network. We encourage chapters to have the participants applying for these national opportunities reflect the diversity (age, ethnicity, gender, etc.) of the chapter.
Below you will find the requirements that are unique to each of the 2020 Participant Opportunities. In order to be eligible to apply, an applicant must meet ALL of the requirements specific to that event.
