JOIN THE FPA!
The New Year has started so now it is a perfect time to join the FPA or renew your membership for 2020.
A HUGE new benefit for FPA membership!!
Majorly discounted old-school Skystylers from the 80’s and 90’s. Colors that are no longer made, over 700 unique designs, swirled plastic… very hein. The FPA acquired these discs through our amazing partnership with Discraft and the generosity of Hall-of-Famer Gail McColl (R.I.P).
In 2020, we are looking to increase our membership more than we ever have, especially by expanding our reach to more countries and continents. Consider platinum membership and/or just directly donate to the FPA! Give back to the sport that has given so much to all of us!!
