Instruction

We love teaching people the joy of throwing a disc with power and accuracy, and strive to give our best to the sport of disc golf because we understand that disc golf is a game, and we know we are fortunate to have fun playing it.

J. Gary Dropcho was a National Board-certified teacher with a 25-year career as a public high school English teacher. During that career, his avocation was teaching students the ethics and strategies of fair disc golf play, how to propose and execute a project to create a 9-hole disc golf course at a neighborhood park, as well as how to throw a Frisbee farther and more accurately.

Now, he can teach you how to get more from your game with a personal instruction plan for:

  • Players who want to score better during casual rounds and in sanctioned competitions;
  • Kids who want to learn a new way to play;
  • Retirees who want a social way to exercise and maintain physical activity;
  • Anyone who wants to learn to have more fun on the course.

 

Young disc golfers learn to play the right way

A personal instruction plan can be tailored to a player’s goals and include sessions on:

  • Strength and flexibility for disc golf;
  • Mechanics and positive self-talk for putting the disc in the basket;
  • Understanding and using the physics of discs and their flight;
  • Increasing the accuracy of approach shots and distance of drives;
  • Managing the disc golf course.
  • Strategies for competitive play at leagues, regional competitions, and major tournaments.
