The 2008 RADD Tour is a continuation of the 2007 RADD Tour
The 2007 portion was delivered in the fall of 2007
This 2008 portion was delivered in the spring of 2008 in the Greater Ottawa Region
by a Jon Rayner and Rob Wormald from the Ottawa area.
Below is the audio/visual presentation used in our teachings
ODSA hired two qualified instructors that had background screening and were experts in one or both disc sports.....
Jon Rayner, Ultimate Instructor
Jon is lucky to be living in the National Capital region, home of the Ottawa–Carleton Ultimate Association (OCUA) and the largest ultimate league in the world. 2008 will be Jon's tenth year of involvement with organized ultimate as a player, volunteer, captain and coach. Jon's one regret concerning ultimate is that he didn't start playing sooner, and he values this position as a wonderful opportunity to pass on his infectious enthusiasm for the sport to a new generation of players.
Outside of ultimate, Jon has a strong background in outdoor education and group facilitation, spanning over a decade of rewarding work at summer camps and outdoor education centres across Ontario.
While focused primarily on ultimate, Jon enjoys disc sports of all kinds. He caught the disc golf bug way back before the 80s were out, and is looking forward to picking up new tips and techniques from RADD Tour partner and disc golf pro Rob Wormald.
Rob Wormald, Disc Golf Pro
Any short list of Ottawa-area disc sport instructors would have to include Rob Wormald. Rob is not only a top local disc golf pro, but also competed in the 2002 World Club Championships in ultimate. Add Rob's experience as coach of Kanata's A.Y. Jackson high school ultimate team, and you have an individual uniquely suited to teach both disc golf and ultimate for the RADD Tour.
Rob, well-known as "Twirly" in disc golf circles, competes at the top level of the sport as a regular participant on the Ontario Disc Golf Tour. When playing in tournaments, Rob also sets up shop as owner-operator of the Ultimate Disc Golf Store, retailer and wholesaler of flying disc equipment. Through his business, Rob provides enormous support to the disc sports community. You can reach him at email@example.com., or drop by his online shop at www.ultimatediscgolfstore.ca.
