College FootGolf Association is a new college sports organization
that is offering a Club Team league, footgolf tournaments, and a
season-ending Club Sports championship for college students.
one of the fastest growing sports in the United States. FootGolf is a recreational sports game that combines the sport of
soccer and golf. Footgolf players kick a regulation size soccer
ball into oversized holes that have been set-up on a golf course.
Footgolf requires very little athletic equipment, and it’s a fast,
fun and challenging game that is appealing to college students.
College FootGolf Association, or NCFGA, is open to college and
university student club teams. The NCFGA has established rules of
play and set the 2015 fall season event schedule for Men’s, Women’s,
and Coed club teams. The first college footgolf event is planned
for Saturday, September 5.
College FootGolf Association will use the McDaniel College FootGolf
course, in Westminster Maryland, as the host site for all sanctioned
college footgolf league events, as well as the college footgolf
championship on November 7-8, 2015 at McDaniel College. The
McDaniel footgolf course is a par 70, 18-hole championship course
that has quickly become of the top footgolf destinations in the
Baltimore and Mid-Atlantic area.
College FootGolf Association has been in communication with many of
the area college and university departments that oversee collegiate
club sports to promote the launch of college footgolf club
competition. College students must form a new footgolf club team
through their respective Athletics, Recreation, or Student Affairs
Office before joining the National College FootGolf Association.
The NCFGA is
expecting to initially register club team membership from area
colleges and university locations in Maryland, Virginia,
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and West Virginia. A
handful of club teams may travel from other regions such as the
Northeast or South. The popularity of footgolf is projected to
rapidly increase in the next few years, with more courses opening,
and many more college students will become active participants in
leagues and tournaments. The National FootGolf Association may
someday offer a competition that resembles the 64-team March Madness
bracket played by college basketball teams.
In the next
two to three weeks, students will be returning from summer break and
heading back on campus to begin classes. With the start of classes,
students will get involved with college athletics, club sports,
Intramural sports, campus recreation, and will participate in a
variety of student activities. The NCFGA footgolf program will
offer an entirely new and different option for college students to
play a team sport.
College FootGolf Association is ready to let the games begin and
open up the new sport of college footgolf. For details about the
