Volunteers are a huge part of The First Tee of Contra Costa. Without their assistance, our capabilities of delivering our Life Skills Program to a greater number of participants would be very limited. While previous golf experience is certainly helpful, it is not an absolute requirement to volunteer with The First Tee, as we recognize that each individual has unique skills that can be very useful to our organization.

Special Events

Coaching not for you? No problem! We can always use your help at special events throughout Contra Costa County!

Upcoming Events:  

Join us for our first glow golf night at Diablo Creek on October 28th! Help us host golf games on teeboxes and greet trick or treaters as they make their way through the course. Contact Lucio J. Diaz at lucio@tftccs.org or 925-446-6701 ext. 103 for more information!

Assistant Coach

As an assistant coach, you would help our lead coaches deliver The First Tee Life Skills program to our participants. From helping with set-up and teardown of equipment, to keeping a watchful eye to make sure safety is always observed, assistant coaches play a crucial role in ensuring the success of classes.

During our Spring, Summer and Fall sessions, our classes meet once a week for 10 weeks; for our Winter session, classes meet once a week for 6 weeks. We ask that our assistant coaches commit to at least 2 hours per week for the duration of each session.


Help us reach more schools in Contra Costa County by becoming an Outreach Coach! With your help, more kids will be able to discover the game of golf and experience The First Tee Life Skills Experience!
