ABOUT THE EAGLES WINGS JUNIOR GRANT

Driven by our desire to see youth disc golf grow, Eagles Wings Disc Golf is offering their Junior Grant Program for the second year.  This past year we worked with well over 1,000 youth teaching clinics, running leagues, and hosting tournaments and we are excited about the future of youth disc golf.  As a faith-based organization, we rely on donations and the support of others, and we have been blessed with a gift from a generous donor that allows us to offer this program.  We are also excited to have some of our partners step up and offer additional incentives for the recipients!  Last year we had four amazing Junior Grant winners. This year we will be selecting six deserving individuals to receive this grant.

We want to thank Nate Doss, one of the great ambassadors for the sport of disc golf. It was his junior grant that first inspired the Eagles Wings Disc Golf Junior Grant and now we are excited to partner with him for this years junior grant. Nate and all our other amazing sponsors have helped make this years junior grant bigger and better than ever.
