IRON KID SOCCER: Introduses the game of soccer to kids ages 3-6 years old, on-site at their preschool, daycare or other childcare facility.  

IRON KID GOLF:  Our Iron Kid Sports Golf Program introduces the game to kids, 5(Kindergarten)-14 years old, in an after-school or community setting. Our curriculum uses SNAG® (Starting New At Golf) equipment in a fun, non-intimidating environment. 

Each  IRON KID program has several Impact Focuses (themes)based off of strong Biblical Principles that encourage kids to live beyond themselves. Some of these themes are Inclusion, Courage, Humility, Respect, Leadership, and Responsibility

What is SNAG?


   SNAG(Starting New At Golf) contains all the elements of golf but in a modified form, making it an easy and fun way to learn golf. The system builds on strong fundamentals of putting, chipping, pitching and full swing to quickly and effectively develop playing ability. The equipment and instruction techniques allow golf to be learned and played on a soccer field, in a gym, or in a park. The simplified rules and terminology add fun to the learning and playing experience.
