Orlando Disc Golf, Inc (ODG) has selected the Educational Disc Golf Experience (EDGE) as the official charitable program for the Southeastern Amateur Championship. One dollar from each participant along with other fundraising efforts will allow ODG to donate a sizable amount.
The Educational Disc Golf Experience (EDGE) has been developed to provide schools and other youth programs with a sound program of teaching disc golf fundamentals and allied skills. Contributions from World Champion disc golfers, educators, and a recreation therapist have injected a great variety of skills and approaches to bringing this subject matter to life. With lessons linked to everyday classroom topics, EDGE helps students understand the importance of math, science, citizenship, fitness, nutrition, and environmental studies, as they apply to disc golf. Resource materials, lesson plans, student worksheets, and related materials are available for varying grade levels.
EDGE is a recognized non-profit educational corporation under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
