Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fun and inspiring for all ages!

I hope this film gets more exposure, as it is a must-see. None of my family are golfers, so don't let that scare you away. These kids are charming, funny, hardworking and determined - great messages about sportsmanship and doing your best.
