Championships: Junior Amateur Championship

Celebrating the future of the amateur game, this event crowns the best junior players in the state. In 1961, the event expanded to honor the best junior and junior-junior player and since that time has further grown to recognize three age groups (Junior, Pre-Junior and Boys Divisions) within this category. Many former junior amateur players have gone on to successful amateur and professional careers in the Commonwealth and beyond.
