Junior City Sign Up


Attached is a link to the entry for the Bloomington-Normal Junior City to be played August 4-5.  Please share with your teams and encourage participation.

New for this year is a Pre-Season Team Championship.  In addition to the individual city junior champions we will crown one team champion.  We will count the best four scores from each school.   
I spoke with the IHSA and as long as it is an informal competition and everyone understands coaches may not coach – the event is all good.  The dates of the tournament (Aug 4-5) fall outside of the permissible contact dates so coaching is not permitted.  We will present one “bragging rights” trophy to the winning team.

I have been considering ways to increase participation and I am hoping by having a pre-season team element it might be helpful.

I am including coaches that are in neighboring communities as well.  Juniors are eligible to play if they have a pass to a BN golf course or if one of their parents is employed in Bloomington-Normal.  Please feel free to share with others that I may have missed!

Thanks!  I hope to see your kids out here soon!

Summer Tournaments

Below is a list of summer tournaments that would be good for our team to participate in.  Can't emphasize enough how important it is to get into competitive golf.

* June 2 - Prep Junior Tour -
* June 5 - Illinois State Junior Am Qualifier -
* June 23-25 - Country Youth Classic -
