Program Description

C Team

C team will consist of any players that did not qualify for a Varsity or Junior Varsity team during the qualifying process. The C team will meet 2 to 3 times a week and focus mainly on developing important skills associated with the game of golf. The intent would be for them to develop a good solid foundation in the game of golf and a path to become more competitive. The C team would be restricted to practice and an end of the season competitive round of golf with their teammates. C team players would have the opportunity to play JV golf throughout the season at the coach’s discretion or through additional qualifying rounds.

Junior Varsity

Junior Varsity will consist of 6 to 7 players. JV golf meets/matches are restricted to 6 players where the top (4) scores will be used in scoring the team event. These players will be determined by a round of qualifying (9 or 18 holes) at the beginning of the season with periodic qualifying rounds at the coach’s discretion throughout the season. JV players may get an opportunity to play at the Varsity level throughout the season. This will be determined at the coach’s discretion and/or through qualifying rounds. JV players will play in scheduled conference JV meets/matches and any additional JV meets scheduled with non-conference JV meets/matches.

Varsity

Varsity will consist of 6 to 7 players. Golf meets/matches are restricted to 6 players where the top (4) scores will be used in scoring the team event. These players will be determined by a round of qualifying (9 or 18 holes) at the beginning of the season with periodic qualifying rounds at the coach’s discretion throughout the season. A player’s qualification at the beginning of the season doesn’t ensure a full season of varsity play. Coaches will make decisions as necessary throughout the season to ensure the most competitive team is represented at meets/matches. Varsity players will play in the preset Conference Golf meets/matches, non-conference scheduled meets/matches and Sectional play.
