IAMGF PGA Jr League Championship presented by 2K Foundations
What a great turnout! Thank you to everyone that came out and enjoyed the great event and to the sponsors, especially 2K Foundations, who made it possible.
Families and youth joined us on November 20th for the 2021 IAMGF PGA Jr League Championship presented by 2K Foundations. The championship served as the culminating event of a 10-week season in which participants from both our open enrollment and school-based programs joined forces, made teams, and learned and competed for the ultimate title of champion. The event started with a shotgun at 2 pm and featured a 9-hole scramble with a couple of on-course activities like closest to the pin and longest drive.
Families and spectators cheered on the sideline as more than 40 participants took on the course with confidence and a winning attitude as they showed off their skills and improvements learned throughout the season. Students from Cedar Crest Elementary were also able to join in the fun as we continue to extend our programming to our neighboring schools and recreational centers.
The Tigers took 1st place and Panthers 2nd. Closing the tournament, participants had the opportunity to purchase items from the IAMGF store with the tokens collected throughout the season at their Saturday programming session.
Additionally, on November 16th approximately 20 young people from our neighboring Beckley-Saner recreation center/KIPP Charter School competed in their own IAMGF PGA Jr League Championship. For many, this was their first-ever competition and the culmination of weekly programming conducted by IAMGF. Thank you to 2K Foundations for making all of this possible!
