Youth Disc Golf Clinic

Posted by mojo28 on April 4, 2008

Harrisonburg Parks and Recreation is offering this program to area youth on Saturdays, May 31, June 7 and 14. There are two age divisions, with ages 8-11 meeting from 9:30-10:30, and ages 12-17 meeting from 10:45-11:45. The goal is to get as many of our area youth introduced to the game we all love (most of the time!) We will cover the basic driving techniques, approach shots, various putting techniques and stances, etiquette, all kinds of good stuff!

We are looking for Club members to give a little back to get the kids involved. If anyone feels that they can volunteer to show some kids any or all of the topics mentioned above, please contact Ed Steele at eds@harrisonburgva.gov, or at work at 433-2474, home 434-2035, or cell at 271-0441. The best part is that we finish just in time for 12:00 bag tag challenge!

Parks and Rec is charging a $20 fee for participants, and will provide a 3 disc starter pack to each youth that registers.

    Ed,

    This sounds like an awesome event. I just wish it were offered later in the month, as I can’t attend any of those dates (wedding/honeymoon).

    I really hope some of my fellow club members will step up to the challenge of teaching kids about disc golf. This is a great opportunity to help out our local community.

    Thank you for posting about this. Hopefully it will be so successful you’ll host some more in the future.

    John

    Please excuse the post above not coming out right. I was trying to use tags and it should have read:
    “FYI – I posted *this on hburgnews.com. Great job Ed!”
    And now I just noticed a pingback, so I didn’t have to do that.
    Anyway, Happy Disc Golfing.

  5. Hola! I’ve been reading your weblog for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Kingwood Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the fantastic work!
