 Youth Cornhole League

October 2 - December 11

               

Cornhole is simple right?  Just a little backyard game.  How hard can it be to toss a 16 oz fabric bag into a 6-inch hole from 30 feet away?  Come join us to find out!  It’s time to evolve your cornhole game from backyard fun to gritty competition!  Cornhole is one of the fastest growing sports in America, and it’s our turn to bring the passion to life in Raymond!!

 

Raymond High School junior and aspiring cornhole athlete Caleb Normandin will walk you through the sport and help refine your techniques.  Caleb gained a passion for the sport after competing at adult tournaments but found that a youth friendly environment was needed to really grow the game.  With this dream in mind, 603Baggerz came to life!  A youth run, youth centered, and youth friendly environment aimed at spreading the love for cornhole and growing the sport in the Raymond Community.  Come join us for weekly cornhole games, coaching on techniques, and all-around fun right here in Raymond!  Cornhole will run for 8 weeks with a 2-week playoff at the end to crown the cornhole king or queen of Raymond.  Come join the fun!

 

This program is open to all 10 - 18 year old’s and is focused on youth development.  The total cost is only $30 for the full 10 weeks.  Non-residents pay an additional $5. We will play every Sunday, October 2 through December 11 (no cornhole on Sun, Nov 27) from 10:00 – 1:00 pm in the HS café.
