Court Setup

The second week of Clinic is here!  This week the program moves from teaching the fundamental components of horseshoes to putting them altogether and developing skills.

As youth will want to practice and possibly set up their own horseshoe court at home, you should provide a handout with instructions on how to set up a horseshoe court.  Those instructions can be very basic, consisting of stakes driven into the ground with a hammer at the proper distances and with foul lines marked on the ground.

Some kids will be able to convince their parents to put in a permanent horseshoe court, so having diagrams that show on how to install a top grade court is helpful.  See “Horseshoe Courts” under Getting Started for more horseshoe court info.
