First Tee of Syracuse Families, Coaches and Volunteers,

Like many of you, we have been monitoring and closely following the COVID-19 pandemic and public health recommendations on both a local and national level. We are saddened to announce we will be cancelling our Spring Break and Spring 2020 sessions.The safety of our kids, families, volunteers, and supporters are our priority and we feel these steps are necessary moving forward.

As of today, the Summer Session program is still scheduled to begin the week of June 29th. However, this may change if situations do not drastically improve. Online registration will continue as planned for summer sessions. We will continue to monitor this situation very closely and communicate with you regularly.

Thank you for your understanding in advance and for being a part of our family here at First Tee of Syracuse. On behalf of our entire staff and Board of Directors, we are very grateful to all of you for your continued support.

Peter Webber, Executive Director
