I have already posted information on this program, but am posting again because I think it's a great program to offer at your library if you have the means. Also, the instructor just became the WORLD Freestyle Frisbee Champion this past summer in Germany!! (He won the title in 2004, as well.)
The instructors name is Todd Brodeur. It's an all-ages program. (Our program was for grades five through twelve.)
Todd gives a fun and informative talk about the science and history of the Frisbee, shows off his Frisbee collection, performs a bunch of tricks, and then he gives the participants time to try the tricks themselves. He is a very professional, serious athlete. He is also fun and funny, and does a very nice job relating to the kids on their level.

Dear Todd, Thank you, again, from the Clapp Memorial Library in Belchertown! Let us know if you are out our way again. I know my boys and I have been playing more Frisbee and my 9 year old has learned some of the tricks you taught at the day camp.
Fondly, Jennifer Whitehead
Dear Mr. Brodeur, Thank you for the recent Frisbee demonstration you did for our library. The kids really enjoyed themselves! It's always nice when the kids can learn and have fun at the same time. I had many parents tell me afterward what a great program it was. Good luck at this year's World Championship!
Sincerely, Sarah Chapdelain children's room associate
I have heard from allot of teachers today that their students came up and talked nothing but Frisbee for a period. They greatly enjoyed the show. We followed up your performance by playing ultimate Frisbee today. All three of us ( PE teachers greatly enjoyed the performance as well). Thanks allot for yesterday. Howie King
