2023 FTOC Coaches’ League

The 2023 Season of First Tee – Orange County’s “Coaches’ League” wrapped up on Sunday with the 18-hole finale at beautiful Tustin Ranch Golf Course. The FTOC Coaches’ League is a yearlong competitive opportunity in which a handful of FTOC Coaches select participants to represent their team.

Participants got to play 8 head-to-head matches from March-October this year at different golf courses throughout Orange County including Coto de Caza, Dove Canyon, Strawberry Farms, Oak Creek & more! Teams earn points for each win, tie, or high finish. At the end of this year’s competition, Coach Nick’s Red Team was crowned the champions after finishing with a “perfect” 12 point season. Congrats to Coach Nick, Julian, Luka, Airlia, Logan, Coco, Alyssa, Kiana, & Airden. There was a tie for 2nd place with 5.5 points with Coach Jacob’s Blue Crew winning the tie-breaker to claim the silver medals. Coach Tim’s Black Team were awarded the bronze medals.

At the end of the final round, each coach got the opportunity to select a “Player of the League”- a player that best exemplified the life skills and key commitments of First Tee while on the golf course during the year. Congrats to Airlia (red), Malia (blue), Cora (black), Kaitlyn (purple), and Varilyn (white).

An amazing effort by all the players this season. Keep up the great work!
