Parent/guardian Evaluation Form

The First Tee of Connecticut is seeking feedback from parents and participants within all of our programs.  In order to keep improving the quality of our programs we need your feedback on not only the good, but also the bad.  The First Tee nationally has created a system for gathering feedback known as “Good, Better, How” that is utilized within our chapter.  The “Good” would represent things that you consider positive about the program and the “Better” would represent anything that you consider negative or in need of improvement in the program.  For all “Better” comments please provide any feedback or suggestions you may have, this represents the “How.”

He had so much fun last summer and fall and would really like to continue in the spring at the next level.  Thank you so much for everything, what a wonderful program!  – Parent of a The First Tee of Connecticut Participant
