Self-Caught Flight (SCF) includes two events with the intention throwing the disc in a high boomerang flight allowing the thrower to then catch it — with one hand! In Maximum Time Aloft (MTA), a player aims to accumulate a maximum number of seconds between the throw and catch; in Throw, Run and Catch (TRC), the object is to accumulate a maximum number of meters between the throw and catch. To get good results, players must be adept at gauging the wind, “reading” the flight of a… Read More »Self-caught flight
Flying Disc Freestyle (or Frisbee Freestyle) is an extended game of catch and throw where freestylers perform special “tricks” or maneuvers before performing the catch. These frisbee tricks can be simple, like a quick tip to an under the leg catch, or quite complicated. Freestyle frisbee is usually distinguished from other frisbee sports because it uses the nail delay, what people commonly think of as “spinning the disc on your finger.” Freestylers use the nail delay to set up all kinds of frisbee tricks like rolls,… Read More »Freestyle
The intention of the game Double Disc Court is played by two teams of two players each and two discs. The 110 gram Wham-O pro model disc is the official disc for DDC, but similar discs can also be used. The drawing on the right shows the field of play. There are two courts; each defended by one of the teams. Two discs are simultaneously thrown back and forth by the teams. There are several ways to score a point or points: when the disc… Read More »Double Disc Court (DDC)
Players throw as far as they can from behind a line. The distance from the throwing line to where the disc first hits the ground is measured. Players get five attempts per round and up to three rounds per day to try and get their longest throw. Measuring is done with a laser rangefinder to ensure accuracy and consistency. The current world record is 338 metres (men’s) and 173.3 metres (women’s)!
What is Disc Golf? Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee. The sport was formalized in the 1970’s, and shares with “ball golf” the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws). A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the “hole”. The hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most… Read More »Disc golf
The intention of the game Discathon is a racing event covering a course that can be 200 meters to 1 kilometer long from start to finish. Players carry two or three discs that are thrown alternately. A player’s disc must travel the appointed course of mandatory obstacles that must be passed in a specific direction. The player’s objective is to complete the course in the shortest time possible by using a minimum of throws and as little running as possible. A competitor’s time is measured… Read More »Discathon
Description This event is similar to archery — except with flying discs. The goal is to throw as accurately as possible through a square target. Players throw four discs from each of seven different positions (as illustrated). The target is a standing square frame measuring 1.5 meters by 1.5 meters, which is at a height of 1 meter above the ground. Each disc that passes through the frame is counted as a “hit”. The world record is 25 of 28 hits. Discs The two most… Read More »Accuracy
