In order to advance from A PLAYER to A1 PLAYer, our members must take the Life Skills Written Assessment and pass with a score of 80% or higher.  A1 PLAYers have an even higher chance of being selected to go on the golf course with a coach or volunteer to continue earning check marks.

Our requirement to move from A1 to Par requires 3 separate accomplishments: passing the Golf Skills Written Assessment with a score of 80% or higher, pass a 9 hole putting course playing fast, safe, and courteous, and earning 27 check marks while playing on course.  These 27 checkmarks represent being taught each core value once by a coach or volunteer, and demonstrating each of the core values twice on their own while on course, adding up to 27.   A1 PLAYers are distinguished into their own daytime and afterschool classes from PLAYers and grouped accordingly.
