2024 Junior Membership – Available for purchase NOW
Dear Friends & Families of First Tee – Greater Wilmington,
Thank you for your continued support and participation in First Tee – Greater Wilmington programs. In 2020, we were thankful for the addition of our new indoor FTGW Learning Center (the old fire station at the Muni we have now repurposed), our dedicated staff, and our dedicated volunteers. While the past few years brought many challenges, we also challenged ourselves to focus on how to deliver you and your children with an even better experience with our programs. We have been working diligently to provide you with more program times, locations, and teams of dedicated coaches who serve as positive role models and mentors for the youth in all of our programs.
Our goal is to provide participants with the best programming at affordable prices. In 2024, you will need to renew your First Tee Junior Membership which all participants are required to obtain in order to register for programming. Membership is an annual fee of $50 per participant. The fee is separate from registration fees for programs throughout the year; however, your Membership includes complimentary family access to our 3-hole Loop at Wilmington Muni as well as the benefits outlined below. We are pursuing additional benefits to enhance the value of our First Tee Junior Membership Card.
Thank you for being a part of our First Tee family!
Brittany Zachrich, PGA – Executive Director
