Keystone Disc Golf
TEAM KDG – Application…CLOSED FOR REVIEW
January 24, 2022
Are you ready to showcase your disc golf skills, help grow the sport and represent a local business?
The start of the 2022 Disc Golf season is rapidly approaching in our area and with it comes the time to start accepting applications for the first ever – Team KDG. At Keystone Disc Golf, we enjoy and look forward to doing our part in helping to grow the sport both locally and statewide through running events, event sponsorships & donations, building new courses and continuing to work on and improving existing courses in our immediate area. Our team is going to be a major influence in our efforts to help raise awareness about this amazing sport.
I want to team up and work with individuals who are passionate about disc golf, that go above and beyond to promote the sport and those that want to grow and become better players at every level.
There will be two levels within our team, so before you begin to apply, please review the guidelines of each so that you know which level suits you and if you qualify:
●The Core team is for the disc golfer who loves the sport of Disc Golf, can’t wait to get out and throw and is actively trying to get more people to play!
●They are doing their best to contribute to disc golf in a positive manner throughout their communities. These individuals may not be the highest rated player around, but they have a strong passion and a positive presence within their local disc golf community.
●Some prime examples would be: tournament/league directors, club officers, educators, course promoters, course designers and disc golf product reviewers.
●These individuals tend to participate in multiple PDGA sanctioned events throughout the year and have a strong & positive social media presence.
●The Grassroots Team is for the people that love the sport of Disc Golf, enjoy creating and working on local courses and are always promoting and helping to grow the sport in any way they can.
●They are doing the work that is needed to be done without being asked to do so and never look to be rewarded for their efforts…A true volunteer!
●A Grassroots member is someone that doesn’t play in many PDGA sanctioned events but they still participate in local tournaments/events.
●They can help run tournaments/events, leagues, clinics, design courses and more!!!
●Some great examples would be: Teachers, Parents and Volunteers.
