DHS PE Staff Train to Teach Disc Golf

Filed under: Schools |

Rules of the game, form, and technique were all incorporated into a day-long Disc Golf training provided to Duncanville ISD PE teachers in October.  This new program and fitness component, entitled Educational Disc Golf Experience, is being added to the district’s physical education curriculum at five campuses.

The Duncanville ISD Athletics Department applied for Texas Fitness NOW grants for Reed Middle School, Kennemer Middle School, Daniel Intermediate, Brandenburg Intermediate, and Hardin Intermediate because they qualified based on free and reduced lunch meal populations. Grant money covered the costs of disc golf training and equipment, which will be introduced to students this fall. It will also be rotated to other campuses for use in PE curriculum.
