Re: BDGA Sanctioned Leagues

Thanks Tom, i need to work out the sums - i will come back to this later on in the week when i get more time. Initial thoughts from me is that it makes overall costs higher and makes things more complicated if we want to include PDGA and BDGA sanctions - i was hoping the sanctioing fee was going to ...

BDGA Sanctioned Leagues

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Bedworth has a Calendar: https://bedworthdiscgolf.wordpress.com/calendar/ Trying to keep this up-to-date with all tournament dates, but I'm not going to be checking daily, probably monthly and when we start to organise some dates. If there was something central i could tap into which would give me p...

Re: Club league idea

would you allow a 'telephone team' term from ultimate frisbee when often a club or team has no geographical ties but is more a collection of friends who wish to compete together. how about a sposored team eg. catchthespirit pro team or disczoo? I like the idea of these... Maybe have a main club lea...

Re: Club league idea

Ok after the horribly bad weekend this weekend with DIY, I am not going to get time to sort out tool / program / sheet to handle this club league idea before the new year - sorry guys, i can look into it afterwards, but time is stacked heavily against me now.

Point system is key... - From what i have read, points will be taken from BDGA associated tournam...

Re: Insurance?

Are we as clubs, all paying the same insurance company money,? It doesn't matter, if the BDGA or another organisation can offer an insurance scheme for registered local club members across the UK, it will make it cheaper for the clubs and for its members. Could the bdga club affiliation thing inclu...

Re: Instuctors and Disc Golf Qualifications

Thanks both, I have seen this site: http://www.sportscoachuk.org and a lot of Ultimate Coaching courses, but none for Disc Golf. It would be good to get something moving within the BDGA around this arena - all sports have coaches / lessons which helps provide additional income for local clubs, for a...

Instuctors and Disc Golf Qualifications

Do any instructional courses exist to train people to become instructors? If so, what do they cost? Does this have to happen through the BDGA, PDGA etc? Trying to find out more but struggling to find any information, i think it should be prudent for the growth of the sport.

Re: Inclusiveness

Fair comments Seamus I have to admit that this provokes a question... "Do we follow the PDGA or consider something that works better at home? - Do the PDGA provide anything to the BDGA that we in the UK cannot do without? - Is it worth considering setting up a scheme / rating system etc that works b...
