Youth Golf

Hope For You has partnered with First Tee Ontario to introduce the game of golf to
youth. We bring the game to life by using games that are flexible to the ages and
abilities of the kids involved.

Objectives

•To introduce golf to youth using modified sports and games in ways that fit the ages
and abilities of the young people in our care.
•Engage young people in fun, safe activities that promote wellness and health-enhancing lifestyles.
•Develop appreciation for the positive values associated with golf through each
activity and extend those behaviors to other areas of their lives.

The Program

Training
First Tee has provided our youth Leaders and Volunteers the tools to get started including
interactive online training, equipment and lesson plans which allow us to easily and
safely integrate golf and character development in a variety of fun games.

Activity Guide
The activity plans include fun variations of sports and games like baseball, football,
bowling, and tennis, incorporating the use of golf skills to play.

Equipment
The equipment is modified, developmentally-appropriate golf equipment that is durable and safe for indoor or outdoor use.

Our program is well under way and through the Fist Tee partnership initiative we were
able to take a group of 19 youth golfers and volunteers to the 2023 Canadian Open Golf
Tournament held at Oakdale Golf and Country Club prior to the tournament kicking off.

Wow, what a fantastic time had by all! We are now bringing youth golfers from our Seeds of Hope summer camp to the same Oakdale Golf and Country Club to be trained by professional staff on a weekly basis.
