Default High School Disc Golf Program

Anyone know wheres a good place to start besides EDGE to get equipment for disc golf? I recently got hooked on the sport after converting from Ball Golf to Disc Golf. Our school has many students that come from low socio-economic statuses and its hard to expect these kids to buy their equipment.

If anyone knows of some grant programs or anything like that I would appreciate it.

The PDGA has a grant program that might help. Details are on their website.

If you are buying a lot of stuff you can contact Gateway and ask for a deal on Ultralights.

In addition to the $500 Innovation Grants already mentioned, you can send a request to the Youth Committee of the PDGA for some discs. Include information on who you are, what the program is, how the discs will be used, how many youth you serve, etc.

I don't think high school kids would need ultralights, high 150's/low 160's would be better. maybe some 140's for the really wimpy people.
