My role and responsibilities as Membership Director involves all aspects of maintaining the database with member info for 2015.
One initiative I will be working on this year is to increase FPA membership by running Speed Flow workshops and contests at Frisbee events throughout the year beginning with the 39th Virginia State Championships in April. As a former Ultimate Player and Coach I also plan to introduce and conduct Speed Flow workshops and contests at Ultimate events as well.
My belief is that anyone who learns how to throw and catch a Frisbee with a level of confidence will continue do so the rest of their lives. Speed Flow is an easy game of throw and catch that anyone can learn and can also prove to be a natural gateway to Freestyle.
I look forward to meeting players at events this year and reporting on this blog.
