Youth Program

 

This program is designed to help teach young people the skill of darts as well as sportsmanship and team play.

We have Youth Leagues across Ontario with leaders that enjoy coaching and teaching individuals the fun of Darts and techniques required to help develop skills to compete at Zone, Provincial and National Levels.

ALL participants must be a member in good standing with Darts Ontario, a permanent resident of Ontario and be 18 years of age or younger on September 30th, Junior competitors must be 15 years of age or younger on September 30th. Senior competitors must be 18 years of age or younger on September 30th

League Membership to Affiliate with Darts Ontario is $20.00per player if all members are registered for Junior & Senior Players and $8.00 for Tykes. League Memberships vary – please contact the league for information.. Youth Players interested in joining should check the web site for a league closest to them (see below). All Youth Dart Leagues across Ontario are encouraged to come on out and join our wonderful program.

 

Leagues and Independent players must be registered by December 1st. Leagues may add new members after the December 1st deadline if they are new to the program or are returning members from the previous year with a good reason as to why they did not join prior to the deadline. Players added must be okayed by the Darts Ontario Youth Director. This is to ensure fairness to all registered players and leagues.

No Youth League in your area – No problem!

If the closest Youth League is located over an hour away from your Town/City you can register for the program by contacting the Darts Ontario Youth Director. Independent Players are responsible for all costs associated with hotels, travel and registration fees. To determine if you qualify, go to www.mapquest.ca, click on directions, and input your Town/City and the Town/City where the youth league closest to you is located. The distance is determined by your Town/City not the actual addresses. The registration fee is $38.00 which includes the $8.00 chaperone fee. Players must stay at the hotels Darts Ontario has contracts with.
