My Students

My students love trying new things. I work at a Title I school in Georgia where new experiences are sometimes limited. But every day students walk in craving something new. They love to express themselves through voice, art, and movement. They soak up new concepts. One thing missing in many of their lives is activity. Specifically after school activities in a safe, encouraging environment.

My students who do not play team sports or belong to a particular school club due to fees or time requirements miss out on many of the lessons extra curricular activities provide.

They want to be involved. They want to learn something new. They want to be active. They want to be in a safe environment to grow outside the regular school day.

My Project

There is much we cannot learn within the walls of a traditional classroom. Extracurricular activities provide opportunities to grow mentally and physically. But not all my students can make the basketball team, or afford certain organizations' membership dues and fees. And many of them spend most of their days indoors.

By donating to this project, you will be helping my students practice personal responsibility, get much needed exercise, and develop valuable life skills through the sport of DISC GOLF!

Disc golf is a fast growing outdoor activity that can be enjoyed by everyone. Similar to golf, the object of disc golf is to complete each hole in as few throws–or strokes–as possible. Instead of using golf clubs and a golf ball, disc golfers use a flying golf disc to traverse the hole landing in a metal basket.

Why is disc golf a good fit for my students?

ACCESSIBILITY. Golf is a great game that emphasizes emotional control, focus and concentration, perseverance, self-confidence, and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, golf can have expensive greens fees and requires expensive equipment. Golf also has a steep learning curve, making it inaccessible to economically disadvantaged students and frustrating for novices. Currently, there are over 3,500 disc golf courses in the world. Courses are commonly set up in city parks and often free to play. Equipment is inexpensive. While disc golf can be played with just one golf disc ($8-$16), the discs are designed to fly with different characteristics. Different discs can be used to hook and curve around obstacles, roll on the ground, or fly over trees. There are also many “games” that can be played with just one disc and one target/basket. You can help us get started.
