Player Perks Program

As we all socially distance ourselves to ensure the safety of those more vulnerable in our communities, we’ve identified a need within our organization to help young people find healthy, creative outlets to put their minds at ease during this time of uncertainty.

We are introducing our Player Perks Program! Each week we will be introducing activities that participants can complete and earn points for prizes.

Each participant, ages 5-18, can register to participate in our Player Perks Contest for FREE! Players will have the opportunity to earn points each week and must submit their proof of tasks/ work to contest@thefirstteescw.org with their name and week of competition for the subject line (EX: Ben Smith 4.27.20-5.1.20) Points will be accumulated throughout the contest.  Register to participate HERE. Contest timeline is as follows:
