The Founding Principles of Leadbetter Kids

To develop healthy, active, and self-motivated children, and teach them the skills to become future champions in golf and life.

Programs and Classes

Leadbetter Kids academies offer daily classes, weekly classes and annual “seasons” designed to be flexible to fit many different schedules of busy families. The primary programs center on golf and life skills development taught in English. Other great programs such as birthday bashes, activities camps, Parents Vacation Nights, and much more make Leadbetter Kids the go-to facility for everything fun, safe and educational for children.

Become Active!

Leadbetter Kids physical activities burn boundless energy, help build flexibility and strength, develop motor skills and hand eye coordination, and encourage overall fitness and healthy living. Based on the performance theories that include movement, athleticism, and power.

Great Citizens

Leadbetter Kids’ life skills based curriculum helps build well-rounded, active, and healthy children who will use such attributes for the rest of their lives. We know not all kids will end up being tour level golfers, so we want to equip children with useful skills they can apply to all aspects of their lives. Some skills we teach through the Leadbetter Kids Program include: 

  • The Four Steps to Meeting Someone New 

  • How to Respect Yourself and Others

  • Nutrition and Environment Sustainability

Three-Dimensional Learning

Leadbetter Kids classes each have unique themes and are structured as progressive, multi-week “Rounds” that follow a natural progression of skills throughout each “Level” (“Levels” are 20 week semesters corresponding to most international school calendars). In each learning “Round”, golf activities are the foundation of the Leadbetter Kids three dimensional learning program. Each dimension teaches skills children will use throughout their lives including self-confidence, English language learning, and social etiquette.

Boost Your Brain!

Leadbetter Kids classes and activities help teach children the fundamentals of good decision-making, concentration and discipline; all skills important for life long problem-solving abilities and creative expressionism.

Beyond Golf

Golf requires certain mastery and regular usage of many important life skills, including:

  • Building Confidence and Strong Self Esteem

  • Risk vs. Reward Judgement

  • Discipline

  • Concentration and Focus

  • Hand-Eye Coordination

  • Etiquette

  • Honor and Honesty

  • Teamwork and Individuality

Why Leadbetter Kids?

Leadbetter Kids classes teach children ages 3-18 physical, mental and social skills through combined activity stations of golf fundamentals, basic English skills and other important Life Skills training and learning, all in a fun and safe environment.


Leadbetter Kids is an “Experiential Learning” environment where children learn subconsciously by replicating real life situations and interactions with other children and adults.
