What is Adaptive Disc Golf?

Disc Golf is a parallel sport which means participants compete side-by-side with other players rather than competing directly against the others. This is what makes Disc Golf the ideal adaptive sport since each individual can play at their own level with a group. Families or groups of persons with Special Needs can enjoy the game together and in turn find more joy and happiness in their lives. Blue Power Disc Golf is not just about introducing a new skill for individuals with special needs.

Medical bills, adaptive equipment, additional caretakers, time off work, and etc can create an especially difficult financial burden for families in the Special Needs Community. Disc Golf is a low cost hobby and Blue Power seeks to reduce or remove entry barriers to enjoying the sport.

Last, isolation is a common condition due to the unpredictable nature of symptoms and emotional state for affected individuals. Blue Power Disc Golf creates a welcoming environment for children and adults with special needs, their families, friends and other support people to spend time together outdoors and connect to the amazing Disc Golf Family.

Finger LakesTimes- Professional Disc Golfer Scott Stokely left a lifelong impression on the DS Disc Buddies, Aug 6, 2022
It seems, recently, that the Geneva Lakefront Disc Golf Course is on the front of many people’s minds. Why wouldn’t it be? It’s prime disc golf season and to play it near the picturesque Seneca Lake makes for a delightful afternoon. Professional disc golfer Scott Stokely agrees, and with the crew that he got to play with a few weeks ago, it made his first visit to Geneva all the more special. The DS Disc Buddies club is a group of young men with Down syndrome that picked up disc golf during the pandemic. The Geneva lakefront is their home course and as their love of the game grew, them and their parents naturally gravitated toward the game’s professionals. Watch Scott's interview with the DS Buddies on Youtube.
Radio Interview on KTTJ About Big Money Skins Match $11,000 Donation to Hope 4 Autism- Farmington MO
Today is one of my proudest moments in disc golf. I was able to send $11,000 to Hope 4 Autism. I hope everyone understands why I share about my donations. It is not meant to be self serving. All of my donations are now matched by an anonymous donor including this one. This only happened because I was public and posted about it. This is how they heard and what inspired them to join in. When you do good things, ALWAYS share about it and tell people how good it made you feel. This will inspire others to join you in doing good things. I am proud of the things I do and I want others to know they can also find and do things that make them feel proud as well. It is so much fun!

Scott Stokely saw something missing from his clinics, and he set about fixing it. When Stokely, a 37-year competitor in disc golf (also known as Frisbee golf), began holding professional teaching clinics, he noticed that an important segment of his potential target audience was missing. “I would spend an hour talking to these professionals,” Stokeley said. “The problem was that it was excluding anybody who had autism or Down’s syndrome or who was a paraplegic or deaf or blind. It excluded a bunch of people.”
