I did a demonstration at my daughters elementary school a few years back. It went over so well the school bought three baskets and 50 discs. Now every year I go there on field day and set the baskets up and have kids take turns throwing. I make it a ctp type thing and give minis out. The first thing is letting them know the safety factors of people being down course and be strict about following the rules. It can get ugly real fast if you let it. Once you have that under control and they understand there can be consequences it becomes a great experience. They look forward every year of me coming back. It's a great way to get kids interested in the sport. I think you should do it. It will be fun.The school I do it at has 600 kids. That's a bunch of minis. Keep throwing!
Mark Ellis, Todd White, and I did some middle school demos a few years ago. One thing the kids really liked, when weather kept us indoors, was trying to make baskets on the basketball court with discs.

They also love watching Mark slam forehand drives into the wrestling mats hanging on the walls . . . bang, bang, bang.

We finished up, when weather permitted, by having them play a few target holes in "best shot" teams of many kids per team.

Also, check out EDGE for some serious curriculum stuff on disc golf!
