Dear jammers and fans of freestyle disc, the new year is here and that means it is time to join or renew your FPA membership for 2019. But first let me review the past year briefly. It is my pleasure to say that in 2018 we have reached the largest number of members […]
Ryan Young has offered the sport an opportunity to take advantage of his unique skill sets. Specifically, if FPA membership supports Ryan’s proposal, he and a newly created committee will develop a new FPA Judging System* that combines the best of current FPA Judging**, as listed in the competition manual, with the best parts of […]
Hello current, past and future FPA members! First of all I want to thank you for supporting the FPA with your membership.

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.

The committee would like to explain some of its preliminary changes to the judging system and to address some of the feedback we have received. We ask, however, that the community reserve final judgment until the new system undergoes further testing and until the players have experienced it themselves. We are still at the beginning […]
