Welcome to the home of The First Tee Lehigh Valley, serving Berks County, and The National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) programs of Embrace Your Dreams



The First Tee Lehigh Valley, Serving Berks County, and NJTL programs of Embrace Your Dreams provide tennis and golf instruction, sports etiquette, and life skills education for Lehigh Valley youth ages 8-18. Life skills education is integrated into golf and tennis instruction to help children build self-esteem, develop self-discipline, gain a sense of individual achievement and handle success and failure. EYD goes beyond traditional recreational sports programs, using ‘sports as a hook' to address physiological, social, cognitive and behavioral needs. Participants learn how core values such as responsibility, honesty, respect, and sportsmanship can help them become better people on and off the court or course. Participants also learn the importance of exercise and eating in a healthy way. Youth learn life skills they can use forever and sports they can play for a lifetime! Embrace Your Dreams is the designated The First Tee Lehigh Valley Serving Berks County chapter.
