Sport Development

The WFDF has two programs to support initiatives that help develop disc sports globally:

The WFDF Development Grants Program supports a broad range of projects, including the introduction of Flying Disc sports into new countries, the expansion of Flying Disc sports activities in developing countries, gender inclusion projects, programs for spirit of the game education, youth programs, coaches training, anti-doping education and other areas. Grants can be for up to US$1,500, including the value of discs that may be a part of the request, and may go to fund activities for up to 15 months from the date of the award. The program is not limited to projects sponsored by WFDF member countries but explicitly calls for initiatives or projects by individuals or groups, particularly in new countries. The deadline to submit applications for the 2020 round of funding is the 31 August 2020.

Applicants must complete the

Allocation will be made by late September, and the main criteria will be the project's sustainability and long lasting impact in the affected area. Grant recipients will be required to submit a final report on their activities and their outcome.
 
The respective deadlines for the 2021 procedure can be found in the application form.
 
The WFDF Disc Support Program is aimed at individuals planning to travel to areas where there is a need for discs to support the growth of Flying Disc sports. This program provides discs, not monetary support. Priority is given to people who can show they are in contact with local groups who will make good use of the discs, or who have a clear plan to start a disc sport group in a new area. Grant recipients will be required to submit a final report on how the discs were used with photos/videos, etc. Applicants must complete the

Before applying please check your customs regulations, as they may ask you to pay taxes on the nominal value of the discs even if they are a donation.
