As part of our 2012 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship hosting duties, we are responsible for accommodating a few of these teenagers (ages 17 and under) with private housing in the local area. We hope that you might volunteer to host one of these fine young players in your home during championship week. Please keep in mind the host family will also need to provide the necessary transportation in concert with the player’s active playing schedule throughout tournament week. These players and caddies are polite and courteous and are incredibly appreciative.

The championship will be held in July 2012, with most players arriving July 13 for practice rounds. The biggest challenge is the uncertainty of knowing how many players will request private housing. The requests for private housing will continue up until the week before the championship generally. The last championship qualifying rounds will be held the last week of June, so we expect private housing requests no later than July 5, 2012. Therefore, it is difficult to predict how many host families will be needed, especially taking caddies into account. 

Should you decide to volunteer, please complete the enclosed questionnaire. We will obtain detailed information on each player requesting private housing and match him with the most appropriate host family. In addition, we will provide this information to the player and his family to allow for contact and to get to know his host family. Should you decide to host a player, we will send you detailed information on your player by July 8, 2012.

Thank you for supporting this national championship and feel free to contact me at by phone at 603-502-4634 (cell) or 603-749-1541 (home) or via email at ddellapenta@hotmail.com.
