The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

The post on the main page of discgolfersR.us got me thinking about spreading the sport. This is a difficult time of year to recruit new participants, as a lot of us go into hibernation. Furthermore, the skeptics are usually pretty unlikely to brave near-freezing weather to get a taste of what disc golf has to offer.

Still, I just hate the thought that I have to go dormant just because the season isn't conducive to outdoor activities (aside from your various sledding and snowman creation).

I love what is going on over at EDGE. I think it is fantastic that they seek to introduce the sport to children.

I think that a good video game will do much to get more people interested in visiting a course, as well as keep players interested in the off-season.

So, there are a select few of us who really do have the drive to see this small sport expand. It's the holiday season, what can I do?

I think a contribution to EDGE is a fantastic way to start. These guys really have it right. Perhaps we'll someday see schools competing against each other much like Archery has gained ground.


Another effective way to keep the sport relative in the colder months is to become a billboard for the sport. Peruse the wares created by upstart Sink-o to become a conversation starter. Some of their shirts (Dick Throws!) are sure to get a reaction from your friends, family and coworkers.


Finally, consider gifting discs this Christmas. Just because the horse may not drink, it doesn't mean you shouldn't lead him to water.

There was guy playing his 2nd time ever today, alone here in SC, it was mid 40's and windy. He asked about sidearm techniques. I was impressed he picked it up this time of year, but you're right this is the DEAD ZONE time of year for growth of any kind.
