Disc 2 Basket's top two goals are to 1, Grow the Sport and 2, Give back! Disc golf has given me (John Herman) so much in such a short period of time, I feel it is my duty to give back and grow the sport.
One of the ways I want to give back is to support disc golfers that share the same passion as I do to grow the sport and give back. Team D2B is exactly that! I am proud of each and every team member I have and look forward to expanding the team in years to come!
