The Minnesota Frisbee Association prides itself on being the oldest disc sport club in the United States. The MFA was founded in 1975 with a mission to promote disc sports (disc golf, ultimate, freestyle, etc.) through education and competition. One of the MFA’s current goals is to build the community of disc golf in the great state of Minnesota. The MFA is a non-profit organization that is put together by an Executive Board of volunteers that help organize events throughout the year, plan for member meetings, as well as think of innovative ways to better the Flying Disc community.

By joining the MFA, you are becoming a member of a club of athletes who are united for one cause… to enjoy and participate in the different flying disc sports. This can be done in multiple ways: recreational rounds with your friends, weekly league events, or even competitive tournaments both in singles and doubles formats. Let’s not forget about the other highly popular pastimes of Freestyle and Ultimate Frisbee. With the growing popularity of disc golf, the MFA is strengthening our numbers in hopes of creating a community of players of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels to unite and further our favorite sport and activity.

Where does my money go when I join the club?

Great question! The MFA utilizes all of our income for the betterment and benefit of the club and our members. This includes and is not limited to: donations to Disc Golf tournaments and events, purchasing of merchandise for club members, purchasing of bag tags, purchasing of membership package material for new and renewing members, and Sports Development Grants to help improve new and existing courses that we all love!

The MFA Board keeps ZERO of the money that is provided to the club. Our participation is solely based on volunteerism.

What is the current goal of the Minnesota Frisbee Association?

As we eluded to earlier, our goal as the Minnesota Frisbee Association is to promote the club to attract new and renewing members. Our vision is that when our club grows in numbers of members, we will have a better opportunity to establish a strong disc golf community that will hopefully lead to:

  • Increased revenue that will in turn directly impact our members and courses,
  • Attraction of external support from sponsors and clubs to further grow our sport
  • Increased reach throughout the state of Minnesota to organize course-clean-up days and events

What can I do to help the club in this mission?

Join the MFA and become a member of our club! With your membership we will become one step closer to our goal. We also aim to have you be an active promoter of the club and to share and invite your friends to join as well!
