Be a Game Changer. Become a Coach.

At First Tee Pittsburgh, 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. You don’t have to be a golf pro (or even a good golfer), we provide training.
