As in all things, young people are the key to the future of the sport of pool…and building strong programs for kids to get involved in the game is the way to open up more opportunities for them to participate and advance in the game.
The BEF (Billiard Education Foundation) is the prime U.S. organization that does just that…and they have now announced that they are partnering with AZbilliards.com to launch a billiards forum on the site specifically geared towards junior players, opening up a new door to information and resources for young players.
Read on in the press release from the BEF to learn more details on the new BEF Juniors Pool forum.
AzBilliards.com Announces New Juniors Forum
November 5, 2012 (Englewood, CO): The popular AzBilliards.com pool/billiard forum (forums.azbilliards.com) has recently added a new category, among their regularly viewed posts, to support the Billiard Education Foundation (BEF). You can now find an area designated solely for all things related to youth and billiards under the “BEF Juniors Pool” category.
Many of the frequent posters already share news about their local junior players in the main forum, including proactive pool-in-school program director Earl Munson from Dallas. Now, forum members will know exactly where to look for the latest news and announcements for juniors. “Between our revamped website and newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and now this forum, we hope to reach as many eyes as possible,” said BEF Executive Director, Samm Diep-Vidal.
AzBilliards Webmaster Mike Howerton added, “We have to be able to look to the juniors as the future of this game, and we are always happy to help with the efforts of the Billiards Education Foundation.”
