Become a Lead Coach

YOU Make a Difference

At First Tee – West Michigan, we help kids discover what’s inside of them, guide them to strengthen it, and mentor them to put it into action in everything they do. 

To do this, we need enthusiastic and caring individuals to serve as positive mentors and role models to kids and teens of various backgrounds. Our coaches’ ability to develop impactful relationships with our participants is the backbone of our program. 

You don’t have to be a golf pro (or even a good golfer); we will provide the training you need! Our training system is built on research-proven methods of positive youth development, providing coaches with the tools to make kids feel safe, included, and empowered.

Where We Serve

We serve our students in four communities across West Michigan: Grand Rapids, Holland, Kalamazoo, and Muskegon. We are always looking for coaches in all four communities! 

When Our Classes Are Held

Our six-week sessions are held three times a year, Spring, Summer, and Fall. Each class meets once a week for about an hour and a half. We also have classes in the winter called “Homework & Hitting,” where our students work on their homework and then work on their game when they are finished.
