PGA Jr. League 2020: A Year of Adaptability and Flexibility

This year will be all about adaptability and flexibility as we all do our best to navigate these trying times. We wanted to provide you with an update on the current status of PGA Jr. League within the Michigan PGA Section.

Many of you have reached out to us with questions and concerns about the corona virus and the 2020 PGA Jr. League season. As of now, we will continue with the league formation process and preparations for the upcoming PGA Jr. League season. We believe that the majority of our teams will be able to start play in early June, which is the typical start date for Michigan PGA Jr. League. We will keep you informed if there are any changes to the status of the season.

Action Items

1) If your facility plans on participating in the 2020 PGA Jr. League season, please register as a Captain by March 25th.

2) Please notify us by March 25th with your best estimate on how many teams you will have at your facility. For example:

  • Will you have one team, two teams, three teams or more?

  • If you have multiple teams, do you want them in the same league or different leagues?
  • If you will have 4 or more teams do you want to run your own in-house league?

We will use all of this information to determine the leagues. Remember these are just your best estimates as we understand circumstances might change as the season progresses.

Following the March 25th Captain Registration Deadline, we will create the leagues and communicate your league conference call times with you.

We will plan and prepare for a successful season with an open mind set and the flexibility to adapt to whatever may come our way. We hope you and your families remain healthy! We are here for you if you have questions or concerns. Never hesitate to reach out to us!

FAQ’s for 2020 Captain/Team Registration

What if I register as a Captain by the March 25th deadline, but then later cannot field a team?

By registering as a Captain at your facility, you are simply indicating that you will give your best effort to recruit a team at your facility. If you are unable to recruit a team, we will assist you with providing refunds to your players and help the other teams in the league adjust their game schedules.

What is the refund policy?

ALL players may receive a FULL refund prior to ordering the team kits. Most facilities do not order team kits until 20 business days prior to their first game, so you may request refunds for all of your players prior to ordering team kits.

What if I originally indicated in my Captain Registration that I would have 3 teams this year, but now I think I will only have 2 teams?

No problem, we ask that you communicate with us consistently about player recruitment at your facility and let us know as soon as possible if you believe your number of teams will change. We will work with you and the other Captains in your league to make the necessary schedule adjustments. Again, this will be a year of adaptability and flexibility!

When will leagues be determined and when will league conference calls be held?

The Captain Registration Deadline for the Michigan PGA Section is March 25th. After this deadline, leagues will be formed and conference calls will be scheduled for the weeks of April 6th – April 24th.

“I think it’s great to see the player’s and parent’s enthusiasm and support for the entire team and not just for their own individual success. You definitely get a family feel when parents are encouraging and cheering for all of the players.”
