We donate a portion of our profits every year to E.D.G.E. to get Disc Golf into youth physical education programs to teach kids our wonderful sport and all of the life lessons it imparts.
E.D.G.E. was developed by a group of World Champion disc golfers and subject matter experts to give educators and youth organization leaders the tools for teaching a fun, easy-to-learn lifetime sport to young people. E.D.G.E. also links classroom subjects such as math, science, and civics to the sport, bringing those subjects into situations that will make learning come alive.
