I got started playing darts because of my parents! For as long as I can remember, there has been a dartboard set up in our house. I would watch them play until one day I asked, “Can I try?” they said, “absolutely!” and started to teach me. A few months after I first started, I let my mom and dad know that I’d like to try to play in a youth event. I was 10/11 at the time, and I just wanted to play and have fun. I placed 2nd in my age group and thought, “oh, I like this”, and started to play more each day. 5 months later; I won my first NC State Youth (under 13) Championship.
I already had the darting bug but then this playing competitively thing got ahold of me and has not let go since. I love the game of darts, the competition, learning to “play the board”, improving my game each day and seeing how far I can take it.
