Two Moncton teens are heading to Japan this week, as members of Team Canada to compete at the World Dart Federation World Cup of Darts.
14 year old Jaydan Rolfe has been a dart player since she was a child, and it’s something she developed a passion for.
On Saturday, they will travel to Kobe, Japan, where teams from 31 countries will compete. “The youth will be competing against Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Iran, Japan, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland, Russia, South Africa, Sweden and Turkey,” Rolfe says.
She says this is the first time ever she will leave Canada, “When I picked up darts, I never imagined the opportunities I would have, travelling the world. It was just something I was fond of. If I didn’t travel, I would still love it, but I guess having the opportunity to travel, it makes it that much more exciting and motivating.”
Jaydan says she has searched the Internet, looking for photos of Japan, so she’ll know what to expect. Two words she used to describe it, big and busy, “When we first go, and fly out on the 30th, we will arrive on the 1st. On the 2nd, we have the day off to explore, and then we begin playing on the 3rd.”
Hayley Crowley of Moncton is also a youth member of Team Canada and will be travelling to Japan to compete as well.
The World Cup of Darts runs from October 3rd until the 7th.
It will be broadcast live from Japan. For more details, visit HERE
