The Program and The Kits

The Program


The Background:

Little Golf T.R.A.I.N.™ was conceived by Patricia Donnelly, PhD, and developed by Dr. Donnelly and Nicole Weller, a member of both the PGA and LPGA. Launched in 2016, Little Golf T.R.A.I.N.™ introduces children ages 2-5 to the game in an age-appropriate and developmentally correct way and encourages families, educators, coaches and golf facilities to develop in this very young age group a love and interest for golf. The unique and revolutionary bedrock of this program is the early-childhood, research-based, educational curricula that demonstrates how children learn and experience life at these early stages.

Little Golf T.R.A.I.N.™ provides an online certification program through which coaches, educators and facilities interested in helping children learn the fundamentals of golf can enhance their business while growing the game.    

Little Golf T.R.A.I.N.™ is a vehicle for young children to gain an earlier foothold into the game, as other sports such as soccer, martial arts, swimming, basketball, baseball and tennis are already doing. 

In an age of digital activities, Little Golf T.R.A.I.N.™ is centered around real, personal connections with both the teacher (Certified Conductor) and a parent or caregiver. These real-life interactions are crucial for a child’s healthy development. Little Golf T.R.A.I.N.™ strives to help develop a child’s mental, emotional, social and physical growth.
