Revolutionary Conference for Amateur Snooker in September 2021…
The new body set up to save the Amateur game in the UK and beyond from extinction will hold its revolutionary conference where up to 75 members from leagues and clubs can attend in September.
The new UK Snooker Association set up by Sight Right and Steve Feeney has organized an inaugural conference on discussing the way forward for amateur snooker to be held in the Home of Snooker in Sheffield on the 7th September.
Last week, Feeney and Sight Right announced their ambitious plans to save the amateur game by aiming to create a more structured and joined-up approach to the amateur scene with more structure and development for leagues and clubs, as well as a focus on creating a better system for coaches in the UK and beyond – who will also be trained in SightRight.
Potential stars of the future will be nurtured at the Ding Junhui Academy in Sheffield which has partnered up with the body to bring amateur snooker a lifeline.
On the UKSA website, it says: “Our new, multi-faceted, development programme for grassroots Snooker has been very well received by the Officials of many UK Leagues (& Clubs) who have welcomed our support for setting up their own League ‘SR Junior Academy’ & ‘SR Amateur Academy’, supported by a new, innovative talent development & coaching structure from League/Club all the way through to National, UK & International level – in conjunction with the Ding Junhui Snooker Academy.”
Those who book to attend the conference will have a tour of the new spacious and luxurious Academy in Sheffield.
Welcome to our new UK Snooker Association Twitter Account and a new era in which we are empowering and enabling Leagues & Clubs to grow & develop the Junior and Amateur game in a way never done before. Read more 👇https://t.co/1HCdVfeYxS

SnookerZone believes that this new initiative was set up designed to do three things…
- Create a more joined-up and structured approach to the amateur scene
- Create a better system in place for coaches and players for training and development
- Create a better image of the amateur scene for the wider public
