Coaches trained to positively impact youth!

A trained coach can positively impact more youth in a year than an average person does in a lifetime. All of our assistant coaches and Level 1 coaches first complete the Assistant Coach Training eLearning course developed by The First Tee. The goal of these trainings, and the hands on trainings that occur at the chapter, is to equip coaches with resources and techniques so they can positively impact the youth we are privileged to serve at The First Tee of Omaha.

Volunteer opportunities developing with professional golf events!

Volunteers from The First Tee of Omaha assist mainly with youth programming efforts carried out year round in the greater Omaha area.  On occasion, volunteer support is needed to bolster and enhance professional golf tournaments as well.  Hundreds of volunteers supported the Cox Classic, the US Senior Open and other major events in year's past.  In 2017, the Web.com Tour will be returning to Omaha under a new title sponsorship with Pinnacle Bank. The Web.com Tour professional golf event will be held at The Club at Indian Creek.  Volunteers will likely be needed to assist at this exciting event in mid July 2017.  More information to come on that as the date nears....

Interested in volunteering or coaching?

Volunteer orientation and coach trainings take place throughout the year.  Typically, new volunteers and coaches assemble more often in the spring to begin preparations for the another fun summer program. If interested in becoming an active volunteer coach with The First Tee of Omaha, please first submit the volunteer engagement form accessible here.  Once the volunteer engagement form has been submitted, a member of our team will make contact with you to set up a time for a brief orientation.  At that time or prior to, our organization will seek your authorization to perform a background check.  Background checks are required for all active volunteers.    

Volunteers assist with amateur golf tournaments and other area golf events!
