Celebrating the Influence of Coaches!
"Grit, Gratitude & You" is our chapter's 10th annual year-end celebration of thanks. We're pleased to honor not only our loyal First Tee coaches, but coaches everywhere who have made a significant influence in all our lives. Tune in 8:00-8:45 am on Friday, November 5 for an inspiring program!
Keynote Speaker: Dennis Gates, Head Basketball Coach, Cleveland State University
Dennis Gates was named the Cleveland State Vikings head men's basketball coach in 2019, becoming the 16th head coach in Cleveland State men's basketball history. He enters his third season at the helm of the Vikings, fresh off of a 2021 NCAA Tournament appearance and his second straight Horizon League Coach of the Year recognition. Don't miss the motivating conversation with Coach Gates!
First Tee - Cleveland is celebrating more than 20 years of positively impacting local youth by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. This year, we're on target to serve more than 2,200 kids and teens ages 6-18 through our program locations, school program and partnerships with youth centers.
Grit, Gratitude & You will feature messages from First Tee coaches, participants and parents, plus the Doris A. Evans, M.D. Merit Scholarship Presentation to Danny McKee, senior at North Royalton High School.
