Future of Disc Sports

In this video Dan “Stork” Roddick gives his thoughts on what the future of frisbee will look like. He doesn’t think that disc sports should be commercialized like other sports – pods that exists in all areas which allow people to play seem to be the best way.

Dan “Stork” Roddick is a long-time disc sport champion and organizer in both the U.S. and internationally.

Stork was an early star of the game of Ultimate with college champion Rutgers University (with a record of 45-1), where he was Irv Kalb’s favorite scoring target, and he was a winner of national and world championships in individual events including disc golf, freestyle and accuracy.

Silent Auction Item: Bongo Board from Fitter First

I’m heading to Fort Collins next week to compete in the 2011 WFDF World Flying Disc Championships and as part of my fundraising efforts, Fitter First has generously donated a Bongo Board which I auctioning off to one of my fans.

Here is what the Bongo Board looks like:

The Bongo is meant to:

  • Improve balance and proprioception
  • Enhance core strength and stability
  • Increase coordination and responsiveness
  • Heighten sense of body awareness
  • Improve sports performance

It’s a lot of fun – think being on a skateboard but much safer and meant to improve all of the above!

MTA Mashup Video

I will be competing in the 2011 WFDF World Flying Disc Championships in Fort Collins, Colorado.

One of the events I’m looking to do the best in is MTA or Maximum Time Aloft. Basically you get scored on how long the disc stays in the air. World record is just under 17 seconds.

In this training video, the first throws are all done with no wind and the last throw was on a very windy day. The last throw, had I caught it, would have been around 11 seconds.
