The Junior Darts Corporation will be offering the opportunities and support to the children of South Africa through the newly created JDC South Africa. Headed up by the African Warrior Devon Petersen, JDC South Africa will be the spring board for Petersen’s academy roll out plans. 


Petersen, who is an ambassador for the JDC, has made huge progress behind the scenes in creating a structure for the creation of JDC South Africa to be launched, and to further his dream of an academy system opening in South Africa. Supported by fellow professional and JDC Chairman Steve Brown they have both enabled the project to get to this exciting point.


Early in 2020 ( pictured ) the African Warrior attended the JDC’s accreditation day to complete his own training in the way the JDC operate and how academies can be created with affiliation to the JDC. With a team in South Africa ready to get to work and with the current “on the oche” success of Devon himself, he has created a real buzz around darts in the country of South Africa. 


Devon said, 


I am very excited about this now. I have been working with Steve and Darren for a while on this and it has always been my dream to have a junior system of opportunity in South Africa. I know the value of having structure and support at junior level and now feel that I can pursue the Devon Petersen Darts Academies along with JDC South Africa and bring on more opportunities to the kids via this relationship”. 


Steve Brown Commented, 


“Fantastic news for the country of South Africa and darts as a whole. Devon has put some real effort in lately to see this through and we are delighted about this relationship going forward. I can’t wait to see young South African players getting the same opportunities as others around the world with the support of the JDC and the passionate drive Devon brings to this relationship”. 


JDC South Africa will also create the opportunity for young dart players to compete in all JDC competitions and will see a team South Africa at next years junior world team event.
