Teachers to train to tee off!

Hillsborough County, Florida- One-hundred Hillsborough County Physical Education teachers will take part in the First Tee National School Program training and certification at Liberty Middle School on Wednesday. 

First Tee National Trainers Benna Cawthorn and Lana Peterson-Pressler will train the teachers, who will in turn have the opportuity to introduce students to the "positive personal and social values associated with the game of golf," a Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) release explains. 

The Florida Junior Golf Council made this possible by awarding numerous grants to HCPS for the implementation of this program. 76 schools' P.E. teachers already received the training, and the remaining 66 schools' teachers will attend Wednesday's program. 

"The First Tee National School Program curriculum is based on national physical education standards and utilizes developmentally-appropriate golf equipment called SNAG (Starting New At Golf) that is safe and fun for children and beginner golfers," says the release.
