Two Junior Disc Golf Tournaments, One Weekend
2018 has been a great year for junior disc golf. It was announced that the first ever Junior Disc Golf World Championship would take place. Soon after it was announced that the first ever United States Junior Disc Golf Championship would also be happening. We are looking forward to assisting with both of these new ventures this year, and this past weekend we ran two events of our own in PA and MI.
Last Saturday we had 117 junior players compete in one of our events. In Michigan, staff member Jim Schultz held the 3rd Midwest JUNIOR Regional at Brewer Park in Grand Rapids. The tournament was immediately followed by the Michigan High School Disc Golf Championships. Thanks to a great group of volunteers and sponsors it was a great day of disc golf. You can check out the full results from the day here.
In Kenilworth, PA Dustin, Hannah, and Seth hosted the first of 2 summer junior tournaments, The Kenilworth Summer Break Bash. This was the first year making this event a PDGA sanctioned event, and we had our largest turnout to date. The day started out with a chapel and clinic, followed by a very competitive round that featured several sponsored players. After the round a local church provided lunch for players, family members and volunteers for a great end to the day. You can check out the full results from the day here.
At Eagles Wings Disc Golf we love being part of the growing movement of youth disc golf. It is a joy to be able to offer fun events for kids while sharing the love of Christ. Please keep our staff in prayer as we travel to Kansas and Vermont for the championship events mentioned previously, and then return to PA for the Mid-Atlantic JUNIOR Regional at Sellersville Disc Golf Course.
We also want to say a big thank you to all of our sponsors. We received tremendous support from local clubs, players and churches. In addition Disc Baron and D-Town Disc Golf played a huge role in both events. Finally, we thank Innova Discs, Dynamic Discs, Paragon Disc Golf, and Upper Park Design for their ongoing support of our events.
