We are working on a 2011 Junior's Disc Golf Series that will consist of one event (one round) per month and will run February through October; that’s 9 Juniors only events! This is a disc golf points series with awards given @ at the Finale in October. Players will earn points throughout the season based upon how they place and for attendance. Cost will be $3.00 per player and the money will go towards purchasing awards for the finale in October. We will also try to do a couple CTP's as well. We hope that the cost is low enough that even if you can't play in all or most of the events, 3 bucks is still reasonable for a junior to come out and enjoy a round and meet new friends.
For the series, players will compete in one of several age groups: 8-10 y/o, 11-13 y/o, and 14-16 y/o. Age is determined in accordance with PDGA rules and as such will be based upon how old the player will be in 2011. Players can compete in a higher age bracket, but not a lower bracket and must declare their bracket at the first event. If he/she changes brackets mid-series, he/she will lose “place” points but retain “attendance” points. Brackets are open to Boys and Girls.
January 29 @ Wills Park is a FREE
causal round and will not count towards points. It is just a chance to come out and see what it's all about. I don't expect a big crowd for this one with the short notice but it should be fun. Last year our biggest group was at East Roswell Park and we had over 20 kids! I think we can double it this year if we can get the word out. We'll need everyones help with that.
We have some more work to do on the series, but the tentative dates and courses are as follows:
February 26 @ Oregon Park (old course) Series Kick off. This will be the first date to begin earning points.
March 19 @ Alexander Park
April 30 @ East Roswell Park
May 28 @ Wills Park
June 25 @ Redan Park
July 23 @ Lenora Park
August 27 @ East Roswell Park
September 24 @ Sequoyah Park
October 22 @ Oregon Park (new course) FINALE! Award ceremony and hopefully lunch to follow awards!
(Please note that courses/dates may change due to course availability and/or conflicting tournaments.)
