Gettin’ In The Game Junior National Championship

October 27—30, 2022
Phoenix, Arizona

It gives us great pleasure to announce CSL Behring will be hosting the Gettin’ in the Game Junior National Championship (JNC) once more this year. It has been 20 years since CSL Behring has created the JNC, the first national, and currently the only, sports competition for children with bleeding disorders.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of their respective sport, participate in friendly competition, and have a chance to connect with fellow members of the bleeding disorders community from across the country. Additionally, educational seminars focusing on the importance of physical fitness and other related topics will be available on site.

We are inviting all bleeding disorders chapters throughout the United States to not miss the opportunity to nominate one child from their chapter to participate in the experience of a lifetime. This is for children, ages 7 through 18, to represent the chapter during this national competition. Each participant will have the opportunity to choose either golf or baseball for this year’s JNC.

CSL is committed to safety and mitigating risk at the 2022 JNC. Further guidance will be forthcoming later this Summer, at that time, each chapter will receive additional program information and details on how to nominate their participants.

If you have any questions about the 2022 JNC, please contact your local chapter.

Additional details about how your chapter can participate will be communicated shortly.

Sincerely,

CSL Behring

Developed by CSL Behring, the Gettin' in the Game (GIG) Junior National Championship (JNC) was the first national golf, swimming and baseball competition designed specifically for the bleeding disorders community. The program gives children with bleeding disorders an opportunity to compete in golf, baseball and swimming and provides education and information-sharing opportunities for participants and their parents/caregivers.
