Besides the regular 2 rounds of 18 hole event for the Atchison Aviatrix, there will also be a Junior II (15 & Under), III, IV and V (8 & Under) side event where they will be playing 2 rounds of 9 holes (probably back to back).
It is a PDGA B-Tier for Ams, so the juniors will get a rated round and points if that is something you are interested in. Regarding a player pack, the juniors at the side event will get a tournament stamped DX Leopard, DX Shark or Black DX Aviar. Additionally, the first 95 players for any division (Pro, Am, Junior big course or Junior small course) will also get an XT Atlas as part of Innova's sponsorship.
Organized junior event, PDGA sanctioning, 1-2 discs, for $12. I'm actually losing money on this.
To be aware, the junior 9 hole course is shorter than the normal course, but it is not 'easy'. There is still significant elevation, some holes actually have some distance (one is 420') and OB roads surround the park. There can also be wind depending on weather. However, compared to the Jackson Park 18-hole course it is easier.
Think of Blue Valley in KCMO. The junior 9 is easier, but it's not easy. It too has significant elevation, OB sidewalks, one hole is 400', can also be very windy...pretty much like Jackson Park 9.
Here is the dgscene page for the Jackson Park 9.
Junior I (18 & Under) are invited to play in the longer 2 rounds of 18 main event.
