Looking for Experts at Instructing Beginners

I'd like to dialogue with a few members of the site that have extensive, proven experience teaching players that are new to the sport. I'm looking for those players that have a specific instructional plan, pedagogy, or theory that they have applied successfully over time, citing specific successes (and possible pitfalls/failures).

If you are an experienced instructor that fits this description (especially if you have a "lesson plan") and you'd be up for a discussion, please PM me.


Please keep in mind that I'm just looking for the experts here. For those of you that have taught a few people to play or have provided some unstructured lessons, thanks for growing the sport...but unfortunately, you're not the target audience.

TIA!

Good luck!

Fred Salaz at the Nati offers lessons. I'm not sure if he has an instructional plan but call the number below and talk to him or Jason. They might have some material for you.

You might contact Mike Raley or Chris Sprague. I know both have done a lot of teaching. Don't think either lurk here. You might be able to reach Mike through discgolfscene, Chris perhaps at IowaDG.com. The guys at Motodom.com do a lot of seminars and teaching, not exclusively disc golf oriented, and they have a DVD that might be helpful. EDGE has lesson plans for children but I don't know how much $$ are involved.

PM'd. Not that I am the expert that some of the above mentioned are, but I have a unit plan outline with lesson plans and 5 years of experience teaching children disc golf. I can share my experience teaching large groups of children with no experience. What works, what fails miserably.

Blake T. at DGR has some pretty good credentials when it comes to coaching DG.

I was also going to suggest Blake as probably the best fitting person for this.

Good luck. Always love it when people give back/grow the sport. I will never forget the people who got me interested. Well even if it wasn't my wife's uncle, I wouldn't forget. (Thanks, Bruce)
