January 30, 2014 (Englewood, CO): The Billiard Education Foundation (BEF) is pleased to announce its 26th Annual Junior National 9-Ball Championships to be held June 24-27, 2014 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, KY. This year’s event will be hosted alongside the Summit 2014 (also known as the Billiard Congress of America Expo).

“The youth are the future of the game, growing the next generation of players and customers. We believe this is a great opportunity to partner with the BEF and support the organization’s mission. Attendees will enjoy watching the best junior players in the country compete for a chance to represent the US in the World Junior Championships,” said Billiard Congress of America Chairman, Ivan Lee.

Many of the top professional players today got their start with this prestigious junior event and it continues to attract the nation’s finest youth with its four divisions: boys’ 15-18, boys’ 14 & under, girls’ 15-18, and girls 14 & under. These young student-athletes will be vying for titles, scholarships, and prizes each year, along with an opportunity to represent the US at the World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA) Junior World Championships.

Bids are still being accepted for cash and product sponsorships for this prestigious event through March 3, 2014.

Event categories include, but are not limited to: tables, cloth, balls, catering, lodging, travel, trophies, shirts, prizes, media, printing, and photography.
