Special Tournament Exemption Program
The FJT STEP (Special Tournament Exemption Program) began in 2009 to allow junior golfers a way to earn FJT exemptions through local junior golf programs operating in Florida.
Similar to the AJGA's Performance Based Entry (AJGA PBE), FJT STEP enables junior golfers to earn their way into FJT tournaments based on performances at the local level.
FJT STEP was designed to forge an easier pathway through the various levels of junior golf (local, regional, state, & national). FJT STEP will also encourage players to compete in their local junior programs which serve as the backbone of junior golf in Florida.
To apply for exemptions please fill out the application and return it to the FSGA. 2023 FJT STEP Application
