Are you contemplating a league for players 16 and under, in one division, or multiple divisions (under 8, under 10, under 13, etc.)?

Excellent. But that brings in a range of answers.

I've been to and assisted with several youth tournaments that had all these divisions; I was there with the younger kids (ages 5-7). They combined disc golf with field events, like a simple putting contest, and distance, so more people get to win something. Ribbons for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd in each category are popular with the young ones, but won't be with the teenagers.

The older boys can throw max weight discs, but the everyone else will want lightweight stuff.

Use landscaping flags to create temporary tees for the younger kids.

As I mentioned, I mostly helped out with 6-8 year olds at acouple of tournaments, where a good hole might be 50-100'. If you've got an under-10 division, you might want some 80-200' holes.

Gateway would be worth checking out as well. I don't know how beginner friendly they are but they do offer awesome deals on bulk orders.
