My Students: The empty pie plates of the Frisbee Baking Company, prototypes for the modern day Frisbee developed by Morrison have evolved tremendously, but even plastic versions falter. Students are challenged by the design of the traditional Frisbee and envy those with advanced design.
My students are diverse in needs in regards to physical education. There are very gifted athletes, those who solely get their activity through my P.E. classes, and many students that have special needs. They are competitive, and eager to learn about sport. They embrace the ultimate Frisbee/disc golf unit mainly because it is different and many had not practiced the sport. It put them on a level playing field where I witnessed even the most uncoordinated extremely proud of her success. My students are teens who still love to play, and are still learning lessons about their ever changing capabilities, and working toward respect and social responsibility. These students vary in their ability to afford athletics outside of school, so in close, they would be extremely appreciative and grateful for new materials.
My Project: My students will be able to actively participate in a disc golf/ultimate Frisbee unit where they will learn overhand, underhand, and side arm throwing of an aerodynamic disc. Having these lessons allows the teaching of both offensive and defensive strategies, also they help students to match personal preferences in their physical activities that hopefully will remain a part of their lives. Lastly, the lessons will help them to accept responsibility for their individual improvement especially in regards to keeping track of their scores for disc golf. They will specifically learn in ultimate frisbee that there is no physical contact and that the teams playing are the only “referees” of the games. This will help them to negotiate rules and hold them accountable for the rules of the game. Ultimately, it will allow them a fun cardiovascular workout in a non traditional sport.
The obesity rate in our country is staggering, and traditional sports are not always the right fit for all students. The opportunity for students to realize their potential in ultimate Frisbee or the calories they can burn on a nearby disc golf course could be the positive difference in a student’s life. When a project of this type is funded in the area of physical education, it is telling the students that their health and well being is the key to staying balanced academically and socially. « hide
My students need frisbee discs to develop coordination in overhand, underhand and sidearm throwing while learning strategy and teamwork in both ultimate frisbee and disc golf.
We cannot tell you how pleased we are that many disc golf manufacturers, resellers and media outlets are taking advantage of TALKdg to let you the reader know when they have something new that is disc golf centric to share with you.
If you have your own website, blog, tumblr or other medium like a facebook page we welcome you to contribute here at TALKdg.com too. Just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or @trotter_talkdg on Twitter for details and we will get you squared away.
As always, thanks for your time and throw well… trotter
So a friend of mine was out in California and stopped by the DGA shop and they gave him a handful of the new DGA Breakers while he was there. One of them ended up in my bag today… It didn’t do much for my drives, I’m kidding, but what a great approach disc.
What was once one of the gaping holes in the DGA line-up may very well become one of the strongest offerings from the DGA stable – it’s that good.
I cannot express to you enough how comfortable the handle of this disc is and how consistent its flight was during today’s round with a mix of calm conditions, steady sustained winds and the occasional gust that would sneak up on us as we played.
Make sure you try to throw one of these this season… End of pseudo review – I liked it and I am looking for more.
If you are looking for more detailed information or the insights of a pro player, I suggest watching this little video put together by Terry Miller with DGA sponsored pro John Baldwin:
