2021 DGPT Regional Representative Program
The Disc Golf Pro Tour is excited to announce a new Regional Representative Program for the 2021 season. The DGPT seeks individuals enthusiastic about the Tour and willing to volunteer as ambassadors for the organization. Being a regional representative comes with a list of perks, including insider information, behind-the-scenes access at events, and a DGPT rep merchandise kit.
Regional representatives are given additional insight into DGPT goals and objectives to help organize tour initiatives locally and to serve as boots-on-the-ground when the tour comes to each region.
