On the podcast, we’ve interviewed people that span all eras of Freestyle Frisbee. We’ve gotten feedback from people of all eras as well. This started me thinking about our demographics. This question is as much about Freestyle as is it about the readers of Heinsville. So, let’s start with our age, in decade sized brackets: How old are you?
For extra credit, let us know in the comments when you started playing.
1st tourney 1980 (19), 2nd tourney 1993 (35)
Was your first tourney experience so harsh that you didn’t return for 13 years?

You know when I was born, so no need for me to embellish on that question. I first saw freestyle in 1981 when I saw Eric Wooten freestyling on my college campus. My first competition was the 1982 Virginia States, and I did all the events including freestyle.
Born in 1973, first UTL catch summer 92. Learned the nail delay 98…took a while 😉
First tournament as a jammer in Paganello 2002.
First tournament as a competitor at the EFC Amsterdam 2005.
Born in ’66, first went out and talked to the Jammers in the park on the Labour Day weekend last year. Learned to delay in October. Seven months now for me. Good times.
I forgot to vote but I can bring down the average age! Born 1994, jamming 2014
Those young’ns need you!
Being 42, I consider myself part of the “lost generation”.
Born 1960 Started jamming 1982

Started with frisbee tag at age 8 in 60’s with neighborhood friends. In high school was freestyle in Edward Hines Park, Michigan which has continued until present. All good times but the 464 local disc-throwers union were the best at Tamagawa river in Tokyo. No tourneys yet.
