Washington Junior Golf Association welcomes junior golfers who live in Northern Idaho and in Umatilla County, Oregon. These players are a key part of WJGA, and some may wish to represent Washington on our teams. Those teams are the Boys and Girls Junior Americas Cup, the Hogan Cup and the North Pacific Junior Ladies Team Matches.
Any player who is a resident of Idaho or Oregon, and will be attempting to make any of those teams, must declare at the BEGINNING OF THE SEASON if they wish to represent their state of residence or Washington. That declaration may be made to the District Tournament Director or directly to the WJGA office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Boys and girls playing in the 14-15 or 16-18 divisions will be eligible to earn points. To be eligible for teams or for the Player of the Year Award, the player must play in at least one WJGA sub-district event or two Open events in 2022.
WJGA Teams will be selected as follows:
