Victorian Junior Averages
The Victorian Junior Averages is the overarching junior program from Golf Victoria that combines both the Geoff Ogilvy Trophy for junior boys (formerly the Junior Ivo Whitton Trophy), and the Future Champions Trophy (formerly the Junior Girls Averages) for junior girls.
The trophies are played throughout the entire year and are awarded to the boy and girl who has the lowest scoring average in ‘Geoff Ogilvy Trophy’ and ‘Future Champions Trophy’ events. Players will be able to view their ranking throughout the year and be able to compare their playing average with other junior golfers all across Victoria.
Players aged between 14 and 15 as at 1st January and with a handicap of 20 or less will be eligible to join the Under 16 Circuit and players aged under 14 with a handicap of 20 or less will be eligible to join the Under 14 Circuit, both of which are components of the Geoff Ogilvy and Future Champions Trophies. The players who have the lowest scoring average in these age categories at the end of the year will be awarded the Under 16 Award and Under 14 Award in the Geoff Ogilvy and Future Champions Trophies respectively.
It should be noted that Golf Victoria heavily take into consideration a players Victorian Junior Average when selecting State Teams and Development Squads such as the Under 16 and Under 14 Squad.

Future Stars Rankings
The Future Stars Rankings is a yearly OOM program encompassing four different events, the Victorian Primary Schools, Junior Secondary Schools, Victorian U16 Classic, and the Stuart Appleby Rookie Series events. The Future Stars rankings is a significant step in streamlining all of the introductory competitions not requiring a handicap that Golf Victoria has to offer and provide a clear pathway of golf events for the development of young players.
Ranking points can be accrued across all four events in either the boys or girls sections. Victorian Primary Schools, Junior Secondary Schools, and the Stuart Appleby Rookie Series are all played over a modified 9-holes shortened course.
