Host Housing (Billeting)
The Junior America's Cup is more then just an elite competition. It is founded on the same principles of integrity, fair play and sportsmanship that are considered key values within the game of golf. Through the championship the JAC hopes to provide experiences that help to nurture these values within those who take part.
To help provide players with the experiences necessary to instill these values, the JAC looks for local families to host members of teams as during the week. Billeting with local families is a great way for players to learn responsibility and humility and politeness. Staying with a family is also something that many will experience again in college or at the professional level and is therefore one of the key experiences we look to continue.
