Car Talk is a great tool for parents and other adults to interact with the participants and to review the life skills and golf skills that they learned in class. Car Talk is a quick overview of what participants learned during a lesson and guiding questions to help reinforce the life skills, golf skills, and core values off of the golf course and/or away from The First Tee. Parents can ask questions in the car ride home, at the table, or at other appropriate moments.
We know that young people don’t automatically transfer what they have learned at The First Tee to other areas of their lives. Although each class at The First Tee ends with a “bridge to life” wrap up, this is not enough by itself to ensure behavior change takes place away from The First Tee. By providing a tool for parents to engage their children in Car Talk, we can further increase the probability that participants will be able to apply the life skills and core values at home and in other areas of their lives.
The Car Talk topics for each week of the session will be posted on this page for the upcoming week. In addition, please feel free to review any past week’s Car Talk topics.
Please note: week 4 putting certification day, week 8 chipping certification day, week 12 tee line written certification day.
