First Tee —South Dakota on COVID-19

Dear Participants and Families, 

First Tee—South Dakota’s top priority is the health and safety of our participants, staff, coaches, and volunteers. We, along with all of you, are keeping close watch and monitoring the situation of COVID-19 and following all recommendations and guidelines by the Governor of South Dakota, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and other public health authorities on how to handle the situation today and any upcoming events. 

Our summer programming is scheduled to start in June, so at this point we plan to hold our programs as scheduled. We will continue to monitor all reports, and should the need arise to cancel or postpone summer programming we will let you know. In the event we would need to cancel, refunds would be issued to those who have signed up for the 2020 summer programs. We greatly appreciate your flexibility and patience as we navigate this unprecedented circumstance together.

We will work to ensure best practices for cleaning and sanitizing are being followed at our program locations.  Our staff, coaches, and volunteers will remain vigilant in practicing good hygiene and encouraging all others involved to do the same. 

In hopes to remain a sense of normalcy in such uncertain times, we urge you to continue signing up for those summer programs! Registrations are open for summer 2020, with lots of great time slots and class sessions still available.  Visit

Thank you for your dedication of helping us strengthen the character of our community and your partnership as we continue to prepare and respond to this evolving situation.
