EAGLES WINGS DISC GOLF AND KIDS DISC GOLF
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NATE DOSS
This program is about celebrating the youth who are striving to make a difference in their local disc golf communities. We want to promote what they are doing, give them a platform to share the sport they love and encourage them to grow as athletes and members of their local community.
The Junior Grant is back for 2019!
We are excited to announce that we will be teaming up with Kids Disc Golf indefinitely to present the Junior Grant. In addition, we are proud to once again be joined by Nate and Val Doss as original grant providers, visionaries, and major supporters! We are looking to find 6 inspiring youth who are making a difference in their disc golf community. Over the past two years, we have met 10 incredible kids who are working hard to make a difference in the sport, and we are excited to add 6 more winners this year. We are thankful for a great group of sponsors that have joined us to make the 2019 grant better than ever!
About The Junior Grant
The concept was born in 2016 when Nate and Val offered their own grant to one lucky junior disc golfer. In 2017, Eagles Wings Disc Golf talked with Nate and decided to offer a grant for 4 winners with the help of a number of great sponsors. In 2018, the same grant was offered to 6 winners with even more sponsors.
Driven by a desire to see youth disc golf grow, Eagles Wings Disc Golf, Kids Disc Golf, and Nate Doss are working together to bring back the grant for 2019. By working together going forward, we believe we will be able to strengthen the program and continue to help even more junior disc golfers in the future.
