At TPC Dorado Beach
February - May
About a third of our participants come from outside of
Dorado, and a majority of them are not from Tasis school. In
April, we upgraded our equipment, switching from plastic to
real golf clubs and from tennis balls to golf balls, which has
made the experience more authentic for the participants.
Additionally, we made the transition to an age-based
curriculum in April, which has allowed us to better tailor our
classes to each age group's needs.

This program has taught our son to be patient
and to wait his turn. He has learned to manage
his emotions while in the golf course.

Invitation to Junior Clinic

coorg
The Dorado Beach Collegiate was hosted at the TPC Dorado
Beach Sugarcane Course. Our participants were invited to
join the junior clinic taught by the Third Place Winners,
UNC Greensboro Men's Golf Team, at TPC Dorado Beach's
range.
Two of their team's players, who participated in First Tee
during their childhood and adolescence, talked to our kids
about their experience in First Tee and how being in the
program set them up to be successful young adults in
college and become a part of the UNC Greensboro Men's
Golf Team. Our kids still rave about the incredible
opportunity of meeting the team members and coach and
being taught a one-on-one lesson by collegiate golf players.

We collaborated with Puerto Rico Open to offer our donors a
special package, which included seating in the Fairway
Trophy Room Bacardi Lounge with food, drinks, and
parking. PR Open donated 20% of the special package
purchases to First Tee - Puerto Rico.
We also invited our youth to attend the tournament and
enjoy the festivities. The kids were thrilled to catch a
glimpse of Rafa Campos as they attended the tournament.
They also discovered the intricacies of the game's
regulations, and witnessing professional golfers in action
motivated them to continue their own golfing journey.
It was interesting to see how the tournament
spectators became silent when a player was
going to hit the ball to not distract them.

  • 7. Celebrating Our Alumni | 5 Invitation to Women's Golf Day Event At Río Bayamón Golf Course June 6 Staff, participants, and parents from First Tee - Puerto Rico were invited to participate in this year's edition of Women's Golf Day, hosted at Río Bayamón Golf Course. The purpose of this 2-day event that takes place globally is to shine a light on the opportunities golf can provide, both professionally as well as in life, and all the women who work (often behind the scenes) to propel the sport and its athletes forward. First Tee - Puerto Rico had representation on both event days, where staff, participants, and mothers were able to play on the course and simulators. This was a great opportunity to network and connect with the golf community in Puerto Rico, meet potential collaborators and sponsors, as well as raise awareness of our young chapter and all we have to offer. 2023: Q1-Q2 Newsletter | 5
  • 8. 4 | FirstTeePuertoRi coorg Coach Training 6 | FirstTeePuertoRico.org At First Tee Headquarters in Connecticut June 9-11 Head Coach Luis Bellaflores had the pleasure of attending Level 2 Coach Training at First Tee Headquarters in Connecticut last month. There he was able to get to know the wonderful facilities, tailor-made for the needs of the First Tee Community, and the group of around 30 staff both offering as well as attending the training. This HQ-led national training emphasizes instruction for ages 10 through 13 and intermediate-level coaching strategies. Coaches were also able to share personal experiences and offer best practices and feedback. One of our main goals for the rest of the year is to continue training both existing and incoming staff to enrich our growing programs and to be able to host local Coach Trainings by 2024. We thank Coach Luis for his commitment to Golf and First Tee - Puerto Rico!
  • 9. Celebrating Our Alumni | 5 Program Development 2023: Q1-Q2 Newsletter | 7 Meeting with Public School Casiano Cepeda June 6 During our meeting with the Director of the public school Casiano Cepeda, it was decided that the First Tee School Program will be implemented in their school starting in August. We will help them prepare practice areas in their facilities where the students can practice golf in their free time. The Director, a golfer trained for First Tee programming, has quickly become our ally and champion with the Department of Education. The goal is to gradually expand the program throughout Puerto Rico, which aims to provide students with skills and values through golf lessons and activities. Meeting with Public Charter School Vimenti by Boys & Girls Club of Puerto Rico June 13 We are happy to announce we will be offering School and Community Programming to Vimenti by Boys & Girls Club of Puerto Rico in this upcoming fall. Their school will also serve as a collection center for our golf club and equipment drives. The collected equipment will be distributed throughout the regions where we are establishing programming. Meeting with Palmas April 21 Palmas del Mar and First Tee - Puerto Rico have reached a mutual agreement to initiate the On the Golf Course and School Programs in Fall. The programs will be conducted within the Palmas del Mar facilities, providing access to a state-of-the-art golf course and tailored educational activities. Our teams are now fully engaged in preparing the necessary logistics and finalizing the details to ensure a successful launch of this exciting initiative.
