Participant Attendance

Attendance is a key component to the success, development and progression of The First Tee program. Participants are expected to attend all program dates with a maximum of two (2) missed class per nine-week session. We ask that while reviewing our spring program schedule you choose to register for a program that’s schedule allows you to meet our attendance requirements. Program space is limited and out of respect and courtesy for fellow participants, volunteers and organizers it is important to commit to the programs schedule.
