The sport of disc golf is one of the most fast growing sports in the world. Currently, there are more than 3000 golf courses all over the world, and some of them are free to play on by aspiring disc golfers and professionals. The sport is taking the world into storm because it offers many benefits to players. It does not only allow players to have fun and enjoy, it is also a great sport to maintain good health and fit body.

One of the popular throws in disc golf is the drive. Every player should master this technique in order to win over the opponent. This throw is the first shot every disc golfer need to take on each hole. The disc should be kept in control and have proper distance, so that the following shots will be easier to get to the basket.

When driving disc golf, there are essential tips that every player should bear in mind. These tips are the following:

  • Achieve an appropriate form when handling and throwing the disc. If you have the right form, the disc will successfully land in the basket or the place you would want it to land. It is recommended to find different techniques on how to throw the disc smoothly in order to succeed in the game. Observe other player’s techniques to help you improve your own driving style.
  • Find an open field or golf course where you can practice thoroughly. You can experiment with your techniques on how to throw the disc, and learn from it. Use different grips and styles until you find out which technique will work effectively for you. At least aim for 200 feet of distance with your throws.
  • Be patient and determined to reach your objective of getting better with golf disc driving. In the right time, all your efforts will be rewarded.

Local Youth Wrestling Clubs vs Little Guy

Local youth wrestling clubs are one of the best ways to introduce kids to the sport of wrestling.  I believe local youth wrestling clubs provide a higher caliber of competition than the   little guy wrestling offered in the elementary schools. I have seen friends kids do real well in little guy tournaments, then come to the “big leagues” of club wrestling tournaments and find it much more difficult to win.

The other thing about local wrestling clubs vs little guy, is that the numbers of athletes in the clubs are often far larger. This is very helpful to wrestlers who are in a weight that there are fewer numbers of kids. It is difficult and potentially dangerous for a child to wrestle someone who is even 10 pounds heavier than themselves. So having a larger pool of kids to pair up greatly helps reduce this issue.

Another advantage of club wrestling is that the season is longer and there are far greater tournament choices to attend. Little guy wrestling tends to only last around one month, while club wrestling lasts often 4 months. There is also, what is referred to as “off-season or pre-season” tournaments all over the states between June –December. So technically, you could wrestle every month in the year if a person wanted to.

Just a note: local clubs are sanctioned by either USA Wrestling or AAU Wrestling.  Some clubs are sanctioned by both groups.  People have preferences on which association they like more, for one reason or another. But both offer tournaments in all styles of wrestling, ie: freestyle, folkstyle or Greco.  Bottom line, both associations goal is to promote the sport of wrestling in our youth, they just have different ways of doing so. Even if your club is an AAU club, that doesn’t prevent you from wrestling in a USAW sponsored tournament, as long as you have purchased a USAW card. Cards are good for one year. Your wrestling gear, particularly singlet color is determined by the association’s rules.
