Disc Golf Clinic's/Tournaments

Postby disxgolf_nut » Wed Dec 27, 2006 2:40 pm

Has there been or will there be any clinic's on throwing tech. in the future. for people of all ages and skill levels.

Also are there any tournaments for kids who are about 5 years or older?
My 5 yr. old loves playing disc golf and can throw good for someone as young as she is.

Years ago, former distance champ, Scott Stokely, toured around the country, giving throwing clinics that were pretty well attended.

I know Jay and Des Reading were doing some stuff on their tour last year. I can't remember if instruction was part of that.

As far as tournaments for kids are concerned, Iowa Games and the Des Moines Open are two that have divisions for juniors.

I think the Des Moines Open (August-ish?) has a pretty massive Juniors turnout each year.

Also, I think the Madrid tournament (Labor Day?) is famous for Juniors participation.

ETA: I believe the youngest division at a sanctioned PDGA event will be for those born in 1997 or later (10 and younger or <10 or however you want to say it).

The youngest division at Iowa Games is 7-10 and they play 9 holes. Speaking from experience, it's hard to keep a kid younger than 7 focused on playing even 9 holes of golf.

I would allow a kid younger than 7 to play, but he/she would likely be competing against 10 year-olds. Otherwise, if I had enough interest, I'd open another division for <7 and maybe abbreviate the round even more.

Any Clinics in 2008 around IA?

Postby NomadicThrower85 » Sun Apr 06, 2008 5:30 pm

The last post on this thread was in 2006. I'm looking to pro clinics in 2008. Does anyone know of any way to look up pro clinics. I've seen the pro and volunteer clinic videos for past ones on DiscCraft's site. But I want to go take part/watch one. So far I can't see anything on the Innova or DC sites, and my google search brings up nothing. Anybody know anything? Thanks!!

I believe Chris Sprague gives individual clinics. His username on the forum is Sprague. Would definitely be worth looking into.
