Mission Statement

"To teach sun protection strategies and to provide opportunities for the early detection of skin cancer to the golf and other sports communities."

Description

The Sun SafeTee Program is a non profit organization that teaches sun protection education and skin cancer prevention programs to golfers and other sports organizations.

This year alone, more than two million Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer. Due to the extended amount of time that golfers and golf professionals spend in the sun, they can have a higher risk of developing skin cancer than the general population. The message of sun protection is critical for children and golf professionals as sun damage is cumulative and a single blistering sunburn can dramatically increase one's risk of developing skin cancer in their lifetime. Our message is one of education, not fear.

We have developed a significant network of associations that help us deliver our message. Our partners include:

  • The First Tee
  • The Golf Coaches Asssociation of America
  • The National Golf Coaches Associaation
  • The American Junior Golf Association
  • Southern California Golf Association
  • Texas Junior Golf Associaiton
  • Arizona Junior Golf Association
  • Future Champions Tour
  • PGA Junior Tour
Sun SafeTee delivers a consistent, informative and branded message of sun protection from the time someone enters the game of golf as a child, through high school, into college and beyond.
