PDGA Sanctioned Leagues
« on: December 16, 2011, 03:52:28 PM »
So over the weekend I was talking with the one and only Dana Vicich and he told me about a new PDGA sanctioned league that you can get points for.  This would be something cool to have at summer leagues for the handicap or doubles.  Not sure how it works, does anyone have anymore info on the PDGA Sanctioning Leagues

It sounds like a ton of paper work, especially for our summer league. I can't imagine doing that much more work week after week. Then think what pressure that would put on the pdga. I can't imagine how many dubs is going on nationally. It doesn't seem reasonable to me. Don't raise my membership fee!

Frank I agree that it seems like a lot more paper work but I have been told the fee is only going to be 50 cents more per league you play.  again I don't know much details I was just trying to find out some more info.. maybe I will do it for a glo league

What else did you figure out? It sounds like a great idea.

PDGA Sanctioned Leagues Available This March 2012

BY PDGASTAFF  |  JAN 04, 2012

The PDGA will be providing the resources for players to earn PDGA rated rounds playing in their hometown weekly leagues. If you already have leagues, you'll be able to continue running them pretty much how you've been running them. The PDGA will simply provide the ratings service for your league players.
 
ďOkay, so how much this is going to cost?Ē  All players will pay $1 per week. There's no extra fee for nonmembers. League Directors keep half (50 cents) for admin costs, final standings payouts, course improvements, charities, etc and the PDGA gets the other half (50 cents). We feel splitting the fees with the League Director is essential to help strengthen local disc golf clubs and help with course maintenance to keep our courses looking nice.
 
League Directors will determine your weekly league entry fee. If you want to play for $2, $5, $20, or FREE thatís up to your league. The PDGA league sanctioning fee will be just $25 for a 12-week league. The PDGA is not going to track payouts for leagues. Itís up to the League Directors how they wish to go about handling their leagues (meaning Ams can accept cash without losing Am status).
 
The March 2012 roll out will be the first phase of the program. We are requesting that all events be standard singles play until we get the system established. Once we get everything working smoothly we hope to provide the option for other formats including handicapped, global ratings based, team and even doubles leagues. This may take some time to develop all of these formats. But once we get more players getting rated rounds then it will be much easier to establish the parameters for how these other formats will work. Plus the IT side of things will need a little time to incorporate handling the different formats.

If you want to ask questions about the PDGA league please feel free to visit the PDGA DISCussion Boards where I will be answering questions or email me directly at Kmccoy@PDGA.com
