Washington Disc Golf Company started with two people who love working with kids. We are Brian and Alicia and we have been working with youth most of our adult lives. Alicia has a bachelor's degree in early childhood education. She uses her education everyday whether she is working at the preschool, or nannying for a lovely family. Brian has a bachelor's degree in social work and has worked with youth in several capacities. Everything from sports counselor, after school programs, non profit work with special needs kids, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and taught health class in Detroit Public Schools.
How We Got Started
We moved to D.C. from Michigan a few years ago after graduating from college. We were shocked to find that there is virtually no knowledge of the sport of disc golf in this city. We realized that there isn't a single course in D.C. even though there are a ton close by in Maryland and Virginia. We have been involved with disc golf for nearly a decade and it is a crucial part of our lives. Getting out into the woods and focusing on the single task of getting the disc into the basket has always been extremely therapeutic for us. We realized that introducing kids to the sport and combining our passions for disc golf and working with youth is an incredible opportunity. We believe that introducing youth to disc golf will have an enormous positive impact on them.
