25 Years of Team Innova

In March of 1983, Harold Duvall, Charlie Duvall, Tim Selinske, and Dave Dunipace came together to change the world of disc golf forever with the inception of Innova Discs. Now, almost 40 years later, disc golf and Innova have grown to heights that once seemed unreachable. This year, Team Innova is proud to be supporting and sponsoring well over 150 athletes. Our 2023 roster has players who have been with Innova for decades and others who have just signed on this year – Disc golf’s legends and disc golf’s rising stars. A special congratulations to Team members Joel Freeman and Kat Mertsch for their promotions to Star Team, Emily Beach for her promotion to Team Champion, and Joona Heinanen for joining Team Champion in his first year at Innova.

With how well Team Innova performed in 2022, we hope and expect to keep the momentum going as we enter a major milestone anniversary, 40 years of Innova Discs and 25 years of Team Innova. Last year, we had 44 podium finishes and seven wins at DGPT Silver Series, Elite Series, and PDGA Major events. We took home 16 age-protected Major titles, won both MPO and FPO in the inaugural DGPT Match Play Championship, took first place in MPO at the Jarva Open, and won countless A-tier tournaments across the country and world. Our 2023 Team has been putting in the hard work to make this year even better than the last. Here is your 2023 Team Innova roster.
