SUMMER CAMP – SUBMITTING YOUR DATABASE
We are all responsible for tracking and reporting participant data into The First Tee participant database for Home Office. This is how our Chapter and Coaches are evaluated.
After every 9 week session or summer camp session, we request each Coach to submit a completed database form. Please send in your participant names throughout the year.
Through consistent tracking, this allows our Chapters to measure the success and impact of programs and also monitor trends. If you need the database form, please let us know.

FEATURE OF THE MONTH
Game made by participant: “Fish Out of Water.”
“The object is to get the fish off the beach (sand) and back in the water (green.) Hit the fish like a bunker shot. You can use the colored fish in putting and chipping games too. Any game I have played with the fish, the kids love it! You can find the fish at Wal-mart.” – Coach Rick Hengstenberg P.G.A.
If you want more information you can contact Coach Rick at RICKMCGPRO@AOL.COM
