UPLAY CLINIC FORMAT:
Each Uplay Community Clinic will comprise two 1.5-hour sessions with a brief intermission.

Morning Session:
Participants can check in at the assigned meeting point. In the initial session, Zoe will introduce you to Uplay's teaching methods, using the 'Uplay Disc Golf Basics' curriculum book. This session, set in a field classroom, aims to teach how to effectively utilise the book, including safety instructions. 

Afternoon Session:
In the afternoon, Zoe will lead a session directly involving a school or local youth organisation. This offers participants in the morning session a chance to reinforce and implement the teaching methods, while providing a hands-on session led by Zoe for all participants (students and educators alike). Notably, Zoe will be joined by Uplay's Ambassadors during the afternoon session, some of whom are among the world's best professional disc golfers.
