Hi Divas! After some thought and a discussion with Rhonda Crosby and some other ladies, I'd like to plan some scheduled clinics in 2018 and possibly to wrap up 2017. First though, l thought I'd put out some feelers to see if there's any interest. I've been playing since about 2001 and a lot more seriously this year. I've had some successes, a lot of tough (but very valuable) lessons and some awesome experiences. I believe disc golf is more than a sport, it's community and KC is pretty amazing in that light. That's why I'd like to share what I've learned and help #growthesport here in KC... I'm thinking, I'd like to structure these clinics around competitive disc golf. To me, this means:
C. Consistency/Confidence
O. Overcoming obstacles (how to play smart)
M. Mechanics -understanding the fundamentals
P. Putting -enough said ;-p
E. Exicution -see the line and hit it every time.
T. Teepad -how to assess the variables off the pad and choosing your line.
A. Achieve success against the course. (Not the people on your card)
T. Take your time with every shot.
I. Immagination. -how to use it for success.
V. Variables - know them and how they will affect your game.
E. Educate -share what has worked for you; dialogue about technique helps everyone improve.

I'm still kicking around ideas but the thought is ultimately, in addition to the weekly Diva league, KC ladies might benifit from the addition of a more structured league with a small fee based on friendly competition and payout (the top 3 always or top 40% when we have a bigger turnout) I envision either a short clinic prior to each round that covers one topic, maybe once or twice a month, or a more significant monthly clinic covering multiple topics and 1-2 competitive rounds a month if there's interest. What do you all think?
