We all love the flying disc. And while many of us have a preference towards disc golf, that does not mean that we put the blinders on towards other disc sports. Whether its just playing catch or hustling around the Ultimate pitch, if it involves a flying disc, we usually support it.

That is why we are sharing the amazing news about the Manila Spirits exhibition series on Wednesday, November 11 and Thursday, November 12 where Ultimate Frisbee will be featured on this South Pacific nation. The event will be livestreamed, and we at DiscGolfPlanet.tv are pleased to share the coverage here on our broadcasts portal.

Even more appealing is the work our Ultimate sisters and brothers are doing for cancer awareness! Through the ERIC (Early Recognition is Critical) charitable organization, Ultimate players are raising awareness to the importance of cancer screenings, as well as the recent developments towards effective therapies for treating, and even curing, cancer. Our corporate parent company, EmergingSports.tv is partnering with ERIC to spread the good news about their work. Check back to this space for more information in the near future.

Disc golf well represented in Athlete of the Year, Sport of the Year, and Event of the Year categories.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (November 2, 2015): Today, Emerging Sports TV announces the nominees fro the inaugural broadcast awards. Drawing from the events, sports, and athletes featured this season on Emerging Sports TV, nominees for Athlete of the Year, Sports of the year, Event of the Year, and Broadcast Moment of the Year have been named.

“We had the privilege to produce television programming from some of the sports’ most iconic events, as well as its best kept secrets,” explained Dr. John G. Duesler, Jr., Principal at Emerging Sports TV. “Our primary object during this, our first year of broadcasting, was to celebrate the amazing athlete, events, and sports that, together, make up this new category of sports broadcasting.”

Throughout Emerging Sports TV’s eight, one-hour episodes in 2015, sports as arcane as snow shoe racing, disc golf, and slacklining were bundled together with the well known Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and USA Curling Nationals to create programming from a wide array of sports.

“For years, some of the most dramatic moments in sport have been relegated to competitors’ memories and, more recently YouTube videos,” Duesler said. “But many of these national and world championship events have gained enough of a following and developed into well-run competitions, that they are now worthy of television broadcasting. All of the sports have dreamed of someday being on television, and we, at Emerging Sports TV, believe the time has come for that to happen.”

With a rich list of accomplishments to choose from, the Emerging Sports TV principal has announced the award finalists in the following categories…

Your participation in this survey will help shape the future of disc golf!

In the 2015 Disc Golf Survey.

This is our 5th Edition of the Disc Golf Survey, which began in 2001 at our home course, Sedgley Woods, in Philadelphia.

Your input will be invaluable for charting our future in disc golf!  We are grateful for your response!

And we will make our results available to you, as soon as we collect and analyze the data.

Dr. John G. Duesler, Jr., Principal

DiscGolfPlanet.tv

As more and more folks look at disc golf as, not just a recreational outlet, but as an industry, it is essential that we know what our disc golfers are doing OFF THE COURSE!

We have been administrating the Disc Golf Survey since 2001, which compiles what is perhaps the most comprehensive and useful data when it comes to targeting sponsors and characterizing our disc golf community.

We hope you will take the TWO MINUTES and fill out a survey. In 2012, we had nearly 2500 who participated, which made our numbers very reliable. THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!
