EDGE, the Educational Disc Golf Experience, has been developed to provide schools and other youth programs with a sound program of teaching disc golf fundamentals and allied skills. With lessons linked to everyday classroom topics, EDGE helps students understand the importance of math, science, citizenship, fitness, nutrition, and environmental studies as they apply to this lifetime sport. Resource materials, lesson plans, student worksheets, and related materials are provided for varying grade levels.
EDGE also includes an outstanding program of positive reinforcements, known as the SkillShot™ Awards. Developed in conjunction with Disc Golf United, these awards recognize increasing levels of shot-making ability and are designed to develop a well rounded repertoire of throws for the player. Certificates and embroidered patches are awarded to the player at the various levels, and their name is listed on the Honor Roll at the official EDGE web site.
Equipment packages designed to meet the needs of varying programs and budgets are available. These range from “in-the-ground,” park quality courses with all the equipment needed to run a school and community program, through portable set-ups for schools that wish to store the equipment, to collapsible target packages for the itinerant educator. Everything is high quality, tournament approved, and will ensure that your students have a top-notch experience.
From introducing this sport to young players, to reinforcing classroom skills through a new activity, to developing lifetime habits of exercise and fitness, EDGE is designed to give teachers and youth program leaders the tools they need to succeed.
