Front row: Mel December (coach), Shaukeena McKay, Rianna December, Savanah Solomon, Shauna Grassing (SDA).

 

The NDFC Youth Nationals took place in Saint John, New Brunswick May 16-19. With a report here's Shauna Grassing:

"The Canadian Youth Nationals is finished for the year. The New Brunswick Dart Association were terrific hosts, the venue was wonderful and the hotel was only steps away. And throughout the four days of play, our team's darts were only wires away. 

Our lack of trophies certainly does not reflect the way the youth played. Luck of the draws played a big part, having to play in a preliminary round in both the Nodor Cup and Mixed Doubles.

Saul Arndt struggled during the course of the tournament. His elbow injury played a huge factor.  His pain was evident to me as I watched him play but like a true sportsman, he never complained or used his injury as an excuse. Hopefully after some rest we will see him back on track.

Rianna December played very well and she, Savanah Solomon and Saul all finished in joint fifth in the singles events. Rianna, currently ranked 14th by the WDF, also played in the World Masters and World Cup qualifiers. The NDFC is still not certain whether a team will be sent to Japan for the World Cup but the youth directors felt it was important to hold the qualifier.

For our other players, Josh Grenier, David Pelly, Cam Wheeler and Shaukeena McKay, the Nationals was an invaluable experience.

The team finished seventh overall in the Canada Cup and I am proud of our players for their sportsmanship and their efforts.

We were lucky enough to be in Saint John for Loyalist Day. There was a 21-gun salute, free entrance to the museum and Loyalist House and a fireworks display in the evening.

 I would like to thank my coaches: Dan Arndt, Mel December and Jack Grassing. I would also like to thank Brad December and Becky Arndt for their support." - Shauna Grassing, SDA Youth Director

Rianna tops junior girls at Silver Cup

Rianna December of Saskatoon took first place in the junior girls' event at the Silver Cup Challenge held in Medicine Hat April 28-30.

Rianna, second right, is pictured celebrating with the other winners Courtney Kane, Jayden Chiasson and Roan Herbert. The SDA sent our youth team to the tournament as a warm-up for their Nationals trip later this month. With a report from the tournament, here's SDA Youth Director Shauna Grassing:

"Eight youth players and four chaperones travelled to Medicine Hat for the Silver Cup Challenge youth tournament.

"It was a great team-building weekend. Dan and Becky Arndt, Shawn Solomon and I chaperoned the crew. Unfortunately Josh Grenier was not able to attend.

"Our Saskatchewan players exhibited great sportsmanship of which we should all be proud. We have taught them well. There were a number of personal best finishes and even some cash prizes. The youth threw some amazing darts. We are proud of every one of them. On Friday evening the adults joined in the fun for a blind draw. Saturday was draw doubles for boys and girls, as well as the World Dart Federation Singles event. On Sunday, singles were played in each age division.

"Rianna December finished first in the girls WDF event and first in the Junior Girls Singles event! Way to go Rianna. We also had a few second place finishes and many joint 3rds in the other events. " - Shauna Grassing

The youth team is pictured above. Back row L-R:Dillon Dumont (alt), Saul Arndt, Jaymes Swenson (alt), David Pelly, Cameron Wheeler. Front Row: Savanah Solomon, Rianna December, Shaukeena McKay. The team sent us this message: "We would like to thank the SDA for the opportunity to travel to Medicine Hat as part of our training for nationals. We would also like to thank Bill Hatter and crew for putting on a great shoot."

NDFC Youth Nationals start May 16 in Saint John, New Brunswick. Let's wish our team all the best! You can get all the results here as soon as they come in.

Main Event sees biggest turnout in 15 years

The province's biggest tournament just gets more popular every year. The Saskatoon shoot, held March 31-April 2, drew 71 men and 32 women players, which is the highest figure at any Saskatchewan darts tournament since 2002 (Main Event).

Some of the NDFC's top stars came out for the BDO-ranked men's and women's singles events.

Canada's number-two-ranked Dave Cameron of Nova Scotia took the $1,000 first prize in men's, while number-seven-ranked Kim Bellay-Rousselle of BC collected a cool $500 for her win in women's.

Dave and runner-up Shaun Burt of Alberta are pictured left. That's Kim and fellow finalist Crystal Chiasson, also Alberta, to the right. 

The top Saskatchewan finishers were Steve Kristjansson of Saskatoon, joint third in men's, and Cathy Kerrigan, also Saskatoon, who partnered with Bellay-Rousselle to win women's doubles. Cathy and Kim are seen on the left.

Men's doubles went to Burt and his partner, fellow Albertan Paul Chaytor. In the mixed event, Cameron teamed up with Anna Fagan of New Brunswick to take first place.

Blind draw was won by Cameron and Saskatoon youth player Rianna December, pictured right. 

Lots of local players as well as some new faces from around the province showed up to make it a great event. A total of $9,580 in prize money was paid out, topping last year's total. Thanks go to SUDO organizers Elaine Walker and her team of volunteers for a smooth operation. See the full results
