Welcome

Founded in 2008 by Bo and Bob Van Pelt, First Tee – Indiana in Richmond is currently impacting over 200 Richmond youth ages 7-18. The Bo Van Pelt/Cross Learning Center at Glen Miller Driving Range is home to our practice facility. In addition to a driving range and three hole par three course, we have our own building with access to a kitchen, computers, and learning space. Our eight-week classes cost $35 and start June 7th. Find out more information about what we are doing on our Facebook Page.

Lead Coach Sam Witherby and others will offer the following First Tee classes for 2021. All age divisions will offer two sessions: Monday/Wednesday or  Tuesday/Thursday. Classes start the week of June 7th and end the last week of July (no classes the week of July 5th – 9th). All classes will be at the Cross/Van Pelt Learning Center at Glenn Miller Golf Course.  Look for dates for Volunteer Orientation and the End of the Summer Celebration to be posted soon.

Richmond will host sign-up date at the Cross/VanPelt Learning Center on May 8, 15, and 22.  If you have any questions about registration and classes, please contact Coach Sam Witherby at [email protected]. A year-end celebration is planned for July 30th.
