Signups for next season are now open! As per previous seasons, the sponsor fee is $300 per team which includes the cost of a new dartboard or a new tablet. We'll continue to score all league matches using DartConnect.
If you have any questions or feedback about the upcoming season, please contact us. Also, please spread the word about signups to anyone else that may be interested in joining the WCDA.
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:
The format for the weekly matches varies by division:
All matches are to begin promptly at 8pm 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 game type (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.
For Round 1 and the Semifinals, because these are 1 night races, please start at 7:30pm given that you'll likely play more than the standard 20/24 games. Should a match go beyond the standard 20/24 games, simply start a second match per your division's normal match format to continue accumulating points. Should the match reach a tie breaker situation (17-17 for B, 14-14 for C/D), please use the tiebreaker format listed below.
For the Finals, should the match end in a tie on the second night (24-24 for B, 20-20 for C/D), please use the tiebreaker format listed below.
