Teeing Up For a Disc Golf Future!

My students need disc golf targets and discs in order to experience a new sport that is growing in popularity.

My Students

Teeing off to a disc golf future is currently very challenging for my students because our school district does not have the materials to allow them to experience the sport of disc golf. Help us putt our way into this up and coming sport.

My students are 7th through 12th graders in rural Wisconsin.

They are very energetic and fun-loving individuals who welcome the opportunity to experience new things. My physical education class has been a great outlet for them to release some of that energy in sports. Only a handful of them have ever been presented with the opportunity to try disc golf. This is a problem that I hope we can fix together. The school itself has a student body population of just over 400. It seems like everyone knows everyone else. The sense of community within the school is very evident from the moment you arrive. Visitors are greeted with inviting smiles from students and faculty alike.

My Project

I have requested 4 portable disc golf targets and ten disc sets to accompany them. These targets will be a resource that will be shared with the students at the elementary school as well. They will be given an introduction to disc golf at the elementary school level and will gain additional exposure to the sport at the middle/high school. The targets themselves will allow us to have something real to aim at while practicing throws. They also open up the possibility of creating mini courses for the students to compete on. I can allow the students to design various courses at different skill levels. My students will learn the basics of disc golf in elementary school, and the specific skills of the game in middle/high school. With exposure to the sport beginning early, they will be able to develop and refine their skills throughout the process.

By funding this project, donors are allowing these students, and those to come, the opportunity to tee off for a disc golf future.

You are providing them with an experience they may not otherwise get. Together, we can expose these Wisconsin students to the lifelong sport of disc golf.
