Taking a Look at the 2022 Frisbee Season: Union Disc (Trevor Wilkerson)

8 Mar

As we head into March, many of us are excited for the season to be in full swing again. Some players will find their joy in a morning round at Tierra, and for others, it is the tournament grind on the weekends. No matter who you are, we are all itching to get back on the course and showcase our new and improved putting game from the Winter.

Many companies around the state are doing amazing work to support Nebraska disc golf in their own way, and one company that has found its  place in hosting tournaments is Union Disc. It was founded two years ago and is owned by Trevor Wilkerson and Zach Nickolite. Trevor has been running tournaments over the last 3 years and partnered with Zach in 2020. Together, over the last two years, they have worked to make Union Disc a staple in the Nebraska community for many players, but specifically for those seeking a competitive outlet. Union Disc exists to provide an enjoyable tournament experience for all while simultaneously raising the level of professional disc golf in Nebraska.

Throughout the 2022 season, Union Disc will be running 5 events, 4 B tiers and 1 C tier, throughout the state. They hope that by focusing on competitive course layouts and running events at the B tier status, they will be able to attract a competitive demographic and contribute to raising ratings in Nebraska. 2021 proved to be a successful year for the company and they will continue to work on finding a balance between competition and community engagement that will please all divisions. Aside from tournaments being vital to the growth of competitive disc golf, they also provide an opportunity to support local courses and help make a push for course improvements.

On March 19th, Union Disc will be heading to Columbus, NE to run the 2022 Pawnee Park Classic. This B tier will be hosted at Pawnee Park and will include a combination of temporary and permanent basket locations. With over $1,000 added between Professional and Amateur divisions, this event would surely be a great way to kick off your 2022 season. At this time, Union Disc is hoping to have all baskets set up by the evening of March 18 to allow for competitors to practice before the event.
