Each year, our chapter relies on the assistance of volunteers for our classes and special events. Without their help, our capabilities of delivering The First Tee Life Skills program to a greater number of juniors would be very limited.
While previous 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.
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 8 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.

Parents & Juniors
Parents are a huge help for our weekly and weekend classes. If you’re staying for your junior’s class, why not join us and help out a little? Junior participants of The First Tee ages 12 and up can also help!
How can you help?
- Help check-in participants as they arrive to class
- Help ensure that all juniors are observing safety
- At Diablo Creek, shuttling help is always appreciated! Help us transport juniors to the practice area before class begins (Driver’s License Required)
