Volunteer training’s for 2017/2018

If you love seeing juniors smile and learn life skills, being a volunteer coach for The First Tee of the Coachella Valley could be one of the most rewarding experiences in the desert. As a Volunteer Coach, we only ask for a small amount of your time.  During an 8-week session, your commitment to coach can be as little as 2 hours per weekI want all of our coaches to continually get better at their craft and that’s why I ask all of you to try to make one or all of these training’s below.  During the training there will be inside and outside education along with snacks and drinks. Please be prepared to have fun and meet some new people. If you have any more question please call Dustin Smith at 775-722 7181.
