The Website Admin will probably move this to "General Disc Golf Chat"...
but, although I'm in no position to give lessons, a players first tournament is doomed to be humiliating. You never realize that there can possibly be any pressure or performance anxiety doing something so recreational - and then you're there. :oops:

It'll be great if you find someone to give lessons. I've asked around with little luck, but I have picked up several really good independent tips along the way.

What would be amazing is for a couple of local pros and/or advanced level players to set up a few clinics a year. I know a ton of people would be very interested.

What you should do instead of trying to get lessons. (This isnt ballgolf after all we all got jobs). Is to get into one of the many leagues around town hell get into as many as your wallet and calender can afford. That way you can throw with a wide spectrum of talent. Watch the other guys/gals lines, bs with em inbetween throws and holes. The more rounds you throw with people that are better than you and the more money you lose to these people. And you will lose $$$$ cause nothing free. The better you will become. In addition to that. Go out to a field and learn what every disc in your bag will do, into a headwind,left to right,right to left,tailwind. Be able to throw all your disc anhyzer & hyzer,& straight. Find a putter mold you like buy an assload of them,get a basket. They are not expensive. That way you spend more time throwing putts & less time picking up missed putts. practice practice practice.
The "art" of revolution....

That's good advice^^^ but if you still want some lessons call up to gateway discs. They probably be able to help ya out or lead ya in the right direction. Heck if you got time and money do both. Least try one since you are interested

I bought a ton of putters and I can't afford a basket but I can usually find a good hole to practice on wherever I am playing... Clinics would be fun, but I'm pretty sure that most people who are really good have been playing a while... I've been playing since March and the guy I played against today had been playing for 10 yrs so obviously I lose by between 15 or 20 strokes... It's still a ton of fun!

True enough about what JBA says, "Join some leagues".
If you're looking for something a little more casual and want to play with some players who are more around your own skill level, join the Beginners' League. They usually play at Watson Trail, but occasionally get out to other courses. You won't lose a lot of money over there ;) , but there are often advanced and pro players who will drop in to play a round just for the sake of giving advice and helping with form.

Mark I would like to take you up on your offer but I have to work Sunday so it would be hard for me to make it to JB. The best days for me to play is Fridays or Sat. How often do you go out and do you ever play at Sioux Pasage. I'll meet up with you some time. Thanks!!

I do not get to Souix much as it is an hour from my house.
