Beginners and intermediate players have handicaps that allow them to compete with expert players.

The Dahlonega Club is led by co-captains Amy Looby and Rick Nielsen. It has competed as a club for two seasons. The club is small, and enthusiastic, and is proud to have surpassed much larger cities like Atlanta and Boston.
The league is beginner-friendly, and is a great way to learn the sport of disc dogging.
