Default Picked up starter kits

So I went to the local dg shop and picked up 2 starter kits one for me and one for my son. I was wonder what are the best ways to practice long driver shots and mid range shots?

Just get out and start throwing them. Your first step is to get the disc to go straight and flat, distance at this point shouldn't matter, that will come later. Throwing smooth straight, flat shots is more important at this point.

There are a lot of YT videos to help get you started, just don't expect to throw like a top pro and you should have fun.

Long playing catch with the putters from a standstill and one step is very, very helpful.

Yes! Do this also. You need less space for that and it will help both you and your son a lot.

If by the end of the first day, your last shot is way better than your first, I would consider it a success.

Practice your putting.
