Fall/Winter 2017-18 Season Registration

Team signups for the current season are now closed!

Free agent registration will remain open until spots are filled. We have teams looking for players, so please contact us if you would like to be placed on a team. Please include email addresses for all players that have not previously played in the league.

DartConnect

We use DartConnect to score league matches and track stats. If you need help getting started, a printer-friendly version of our DartConnect Cheat Sheet is available here.

All captains should have received a welcome email from DartConnect to access the members website and the DartConnect application. If not, please let me know ASAP so I can have DartConnect resend the welcome email. Please sign in sometime before the first match of the season to make sure you have access. Once you're signed in, please verify the accuracy of your rosters (names and email addresses) and let us know ASAP of any changes need to be made. As a reminder, any roster changes will only flow through to the DartConnect application when the tablet is connected to wi-fi and can access the Internet.

As a reminder, all scoring must be done within the DartConnect application. There is no need to use any other device (e.g. DartMaster III, whiteboard, chalkboard, etc). Any individual player stats not captured by DartConnect will not count (e.g. wins-losses, averages, high all-stars, etc).

Here are a couple helpful hints regarding the tablets and DartConnect application:

  • Be sure to have the tablets connected to wi-fi whenever possible so that the match will broadcast live at tv.dartconnect.com and the final results will automatically transmit to the server after the end of the match. An automated email from DartConnect with the match report is your confirmation that the transmission was successful.
  • The league recommends having the power cable plugged into the tablets during matches to avoid "dead tablets" mid-match as the battery life on the league-issued tablets is limited.

Schedule

The Fall/Winter 2017-18 regular season will run from September 12th, 2017 through January 2nd, 2018.

Locations

The following locations have teams participating in the Fall/Winter 2017-18 season.

Match Format

The format for the weekly matches varies by division:

  • Division 1: 24 games per match. 4 sets of singles (3 games each: 501 SIDO, Cricket, choice), 2 sets of doubles Cricket (3 games each), and 2 sets of doubles 501 SIDO (3 games each).
    One minor change this season regarding "choice" for the 3rd game in singles. This season, the winner of the bull shot will choose the game OR start the Leg, not both.
  • Divisions 2, 3 & 4: 20 games per match. 4 sets of singles (2 games each: 501 SIDO, Cricket), 2 sets of doubles Cricket (3 games each), and 2 sets of doubles 501 SIDO (3 games each).

All Division 1, 2 & 3 matches are to begin promptly at 8pm and Division 4 matches are to begin promptly at 7pm, unless both teams agree in advance to a later start time. Therefore, please plan to arrive at the match location at least 15 minutes in advance for warm-ups and to set lineups.

Lineups are to be set prior to each section (singles, doubles cricket, and doubles 501). Because DartConnect does not yet have the ability to set lineups in advance, please use scrap paper to write down your lineups. Teams may elect to bypass this and choose their players "on the fly" after each set, but only if both teams agree to do so prior to the beginning of the match.

Playoffs

The top 4 teams in each division will move on to the playoffs, seeded by the final standings at the end of the regular season.

  • Semifinals (1/9/18 & 1/16/18): Home-and-home matchup across two weeks, #1 vs #4 and #2 vs #3. Higher seed chooses where to play the first week. Regular season match format each week. In Division 1, the first teams to score 25 points move on to the Finals. For Divisions 2, 3 & 4, the first teams to score 21 points move on to the Finals.
  • Finals (1/23/18 & 1/30/18): Home-and-home matchup across two weeks between the two remaining teams. Higher seed chooses where to play the first week. Regular season match format each week. In Division 1, the first teams to score 25 points wins the division title. For Divisions 2, 3 & 4, the first teams to score 21 points wins the division title.

Tiebreaker Format

Should a playoff match result in a tie (e.g. 24-24 or 20-20), the following tiebreaker format will be used to decide the winner:
  • Best of 3 legs. First leg is doubles 501, second leg is doubles Cricket, and third leg is doubles "choice". Players may be changed after each leg (e.g. each leg is treated as a 1 leg set in DartConnect).
  • "Choice" is to decide the game to be played (doubles 501 or doubles cricket) OR to shoot first, not both.
  • Closest to bull decides which team shoots first at the beginning of the first and second legs. Closest to bull decides which team gets the "choice" at the beginning of the third leg. Bull decision (who shoots bull first) is given to the away team for first leg, losing team for second leg, and a coin toss called by losing team for the third leg.
