Welcome to the first edition of the PGA Jr. League Captain E-Newsletter! In each month's newsletter, you will find news and updates, quotes, feedback from fellow Captains, and a note from our team. If you have any questions about your PGA Jr. League team or league, please reach out to your Regional League Manager for support.
Captain Marketing E-Toolkit
In addition to the resources available in the Marketing Resource Center through PGA.org/PGAJrLeague, we've created a one-pager with everything you need to successfully market and promote your teams and leagues! Whether you're interested in reaching out to local community organizations, area media or your current customer database, we have you covered.
2018 Conditions of Play
The 2018 Conditions of Play has been posted online at PGAJrLeague.com/ConditionsOfPlay. Two hard copies will also be provided in your Team Kit.
The Conditions of Play govern the postseason competitions, however, we're also strongly encouraging Captains to implement them in regular season play.
NEW! PGA Jr. League Online Store
We are thrilled to launch our PGA Jr. League Online Merchandise Store this season, which will allow parents and family members to order PGA Jr. League apparel and accessories from partners including Callaway, COBRA PUMA GOLF, TaylorMade and Titleist. If you have an affiliation with one of these brands, this will be marketed and emphasized throughout the store.
As Captains, you will receive 35% of all gross sales revenues for apparel and headwear, and 30% of accessory revenues from the items offered online.
STAY TUNED this month for your unique online store URL to share with your PGA Jr. League teams and leagues.
Please note that you will receive your unique online store URL shortly. There will be a grace period of a few days for you to distribute it if you wish, after which your link will be emailed to parents who have already registered (exact date to be communicated once determined). Thereafter, new registrants will automatically receive the link to your store.
QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS? Please reach out to your Regional League Manager.

A Note from our Team
We are off to a running start this PGA Jr. League season! Feedback around the new Regional League Manager support team, scholarship program, team kits, advertising strategy, and Section Championship model has been phenomenal. As a result, Captain and player registration are both ahead of where we were at this time last year. Thank you for your support of the program and leadership in growing the game!
One area where we are falling short of our standards is with the website. For those of you who have experienced issues, we apologize and thank you for your patience. We are addressing these as quickly as possible with our technology partner and have implemented additional support resources for you and your parents, including a live chat, email submission, and numerous tutorials at PGAJrLeague.com/Website-Help.
You will begin to notice advertisements through some of our partners, including PGA TOUR, Golf Channel, DICK'S Sporting Goods, GOLFTEC and Golfweek. We are committed to driving players and their families to your facilities, all to bring value to the great work you are doing as Captains to enrich lives and grow the game.
Best of luck as you kick off your season. We look forward to seeing your photos, videos and stories this summer!
