2019 Next Gen Affiliate Events

NEW TITLE SPONSOR

  • This relationship made a ton of sense for us. They will ship everything to you, will handle all orders, and provide broad new online capabilities to www.nextgendiscgolf.com including: online payouts, reporting point rankings on a National, Regional and State basis and providing individual online player profiles.
  • Welcome new sponsors INNOVA, DISCRAFT, PRODIGY, LEGACY,  LATITUDE 64, DISCMANIA, KASTAPLAST, GATEWAY, and MVP. These new sponsors bring new opportunities for our player base. Offer your event as a ‘players choice’ (they choose what players pack they want) or as the TD you can choose to offer one particular MFG players packs.
  • IT’S ALL ABOUT POINTS! This year all rankings, National Championship invites and regional/national payouts are based on NG points (similar to the PDGA point system). We will be offering multiple ways for players to earn points throughout the year. Our NG Affiliate tournaments award points based on the PDGA Tier level of the event.
