Junior coaches Matt Winters and Steve Garrean Jr. were proud to announce the 2016 Junior National dart team to a crowd of supporters. The new team will be working towards a repeat National Championship for the team who this year brought back two National Championships, a National Runner-Up and a National 3rd place finish.
The 2016 team has expanded from the original four Juniors and two coaches to a team of nine Juniors and four coaches. The team is excited about not only the acceptance of the players, but the support system that has been built for the team.
The 2015 team hosted several successful fundraisers, including dart tournaments at Plattsmouth Eagles and End Zone Sports Bar & Grill in Nebraska City, both of which were sponsors for the team. This year the team, along with coaches and parents are already planning numerous fundraisers to cover the expenses of an expanded team.
