In the spirit that all NWGA activities have a focus
which supports the NWGA purpose the strategy to support junior golfers
includes two avenues: contributions and volunteer time.
NWGA will continue to collect an optional $10 per member at time of dues collection that will be designated as a contribution toward Junior Golf Programs for girls. The Board will vote on the distribution of this money to either the First Tee Program or Tennessee Golf Association related junior golfing events.
Additional money from the annual budget may be distributed toward junior golfing events for girls as recommended and voted by the Board in each season.
Support the First Tee program by designating specific days during the play season for members to bring donations of equipmant, clothing and other golf related paraphernalia.
Beyond contributions of money and golf related items, a broader focus on supporting junior golfers will be a priority by exploring events and junior activities where NWGA members can volunteer their time and be visible role models for junior girl golfers.
The Junior Golf Committee Chair will work closely with the Tennessee Golf Association Women's Director of Golf and the First Tee Executive Director to obtain event schedules and miscellaneous opportunities for NWGA involvement to volunteer.
Specific event dates will be published to NWGA members with encouragement for their commitment to volunteer personal time t support those events. The Junior Golf Committee Chair will coordinate the volunteers with the respective program events.
