The First Tee – Delaware -Statement on our 2020 Programs

The Staff and our Lead Coaches, along with the guidance of our Board of Directors, consistent with CDC, First Tee National, and the State of Delaware Re-Opening Guidelines have been able to offer 2020 Programs successfully, in a limited way. We will continue to monitor our environment as we plan to move forward into the next seasons. No definitive decisions have been made for winter programming. Please keep a watch on our website as well as our social media platforms for further information.
It is important for all Parents and Guardians to realize at the forefront of all the program decisions we make, is the safety of everyone involved.
Below are specific requirements that will stay in place to safely deliver future programs when applicable:
  1. If there is a doubt that the child is not feeling well before class, she or he should not attend the class. Parents are responsible for making this decision and The First Tee of Delaware will not be responsible for taking temperatures of the child.
  2. Children will social distance at all times. If the child does not follow social distancing guidelines, she/he will be warned; if they continue not to follow the direction of the Coach they will be asked to leave the class.
  3. All golf equipment and accessories (i.e. golf balls, tees, clubs) and teaching aids will be sanitized before and after each group class;
  4. For group classes, we are limiting the number of participants. If we have more than the limited number of participants registered, we will consider the option of having a second session depending on the availability of coaches;
  5. We will have a minimum of 2 coaches at each session and if we have more than expected participants – additional Coaches will join the class;
  6. Participants should bring their own drinks. Use of shared water foundations is discouraged.
  7. We will have hand sanitizer readily available for all participants and coaches.
  8. Coaches and Staff must wear cloth face coverings in accordance with the State of Delaware guidelines.
  9. Masks are required to be worn by all participants while they are at class.
  10. Parents are welcome to stay during class and participate when the program is specified. If determined by the coach, and depending on the type of programming,  parents and visitors may be asked to  be away from the practice area and social distancing from other parents as needed.
Thank you for your interest in the First Tee of Delaware. This is truly a year like no other.

The First Tee of Delaware statement regarding Novel Coronavirus COVID-19

The First Tee of Delaware’s top priority is the health and safety of our participants and their parents, employees and volunteers. Working with the First Tee National Organization, we have been reviewing all available information related to the continued spread of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19.

After considering the relevant positions from the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) and  the World Health Organization (WHO), there are no planned suspensions of business activity at this time.  We are following announcements from local, and State of Delaware Departments of Health to understand local risks and plans to help prevent the spread of this illness and keep our staff, coaches, volunteers and participants safe.   We are also monitoring guidelines and any changes from The First Tee, as well as from the CDC, the WHO, and other U.S. Departments as events evolve.

We, at The First Tee of Delaware, will identify and follow applicable guidelines and hygiene precautions as necessary.  In the event that circumstances change, requiring us to make adjustments to our program activities and how we operate, we will do so and immediately communicate with our stakeholders.   We will continue to actively monitor reports and will make any updates as necessary.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
