Title: Scholastic DG 1
Date: 09.15.2013
Location: Deer Lakes DGC
Description: Pittsburgh area middle school and high school girls and boys who play disc golf can help their school win an Educational Disc Golf Experience (EDGE) package of disc golf equipment for their school at the 2013 Scholastic Disc Golf Series.

The series begins at the world-class course at Deer Lakes Park on September 15 and includes events at Schenley Park, Knob Hill Park, Brighton Township, and finishing at Moraine State Park on October 19. Scholastic disc golfers will get to play on some of the same courses to be used by professional players in the 2015 Pro Disc Golf World Championships

Events include clinics and instruction by professional players, as well as lunch provided. All series players get a micro-fiber disc golf jersey and a new golf disc at each tournament entered. Prizes and awards given at each of the five events.

Individual series awards, such as the Scholastic Disc Golfer of the Year and Rookie of the Year, will be calculated using each person's best three event finishes. Both girl and boy players’ points from all schools in the same school district will be used to calculate team standings to determine the winner of the Pipe and Chains trophy.

Sponsorship of the series by EDGE means the school district that wins the team title will also win three portable disc golf baskets, 30 golf discs, as well as a curriculum and video for use in physical education classes.

Preregistration for the entire series includes a discounted entry fee of $50; individual event registrations can be done on-site for $12.

Innova, Discraft, the Pittsburgh Flying Disc Society, and Grip It and Rip It are once again sponsoring these events for girls and boys ages 9-18.
