Are you interested in playing darts but do not have a full team? Are you unsure on how to get started? Email us and we will help place you on a team.

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.

Spring/Summer 2017 Schedule

The Spring/Summer 2017 season will run from March 21st through the end of July. It's starting a few weeks earlier than usual, but we've gotten enough feedback about the summer season running into August during the prime time for vacations, so we'll give this earlier start a try.

Spring 2017 DoubleCork National Singles League (PDSL)

Starting with the Spring 2017 Season, WCDA will be organizing DoubleCork National Singles League (PDSL) brackets. If you are interested in learning more about PDSL or want to join one of our brackets, please send us an email.

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.
  • I recommend 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

We kick things off on Tuesday, October 18th. The regular season will run through January 31, 2017. Each team plays 14 matches (7 home, 7 away) with weeks off for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Playoffs will take place from Tuesday, February 7th to Tuesday, February 28th with a week off for Valentine's day. Details regarding the end-of-the-season awards party will be announced after playoffs have concluded.

A printer-friendly version of the Fall-Winter 2016-2017 schedule is available here.

Locations

Match Format

The format for the weekly matches varies by division:

  • Division B: 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). An individual player can only play once each in singles, doubles cricket, and doubles 501 for maximum of 9 games per match.
  • Divisions C & D: 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). An individual player can only play once each in singles, doubles cricket, and doubles 501 for maximum of 8 games per match.

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.

Bracket Format

Click here to view the playoff bracket. This season, the top 6 teams from each division will qualify for the playoffs and compete in the following format:

  • Round 1 (2/7/17): The #1 and #2 seeds receive byes. The #3 seed plays the #6 seed, while the #4 plays the #5 seed. This round will be a one-week matchup at the higher seed's bar. First teams to 18 points (B division) or 15 points (C/D divisions) advance to the semifinals.
  • Semifinals (2/21/17): The #1 seed faces the lower remaining seed from the first round, while the #2 seed faces the higher remaining seed from the first round. This round will be a one-week matchup at the #1 and #2 seed bars. The first teams to 18 points (B division) or 15 points (C/D divisions) advance to the finals.
  • Finals (2/28/17 & 3/7/17): Home-and-home matchup across two weeks between the two remaining teams. Higher seed chooses where to play the first week. The first team to 25 points (B division) or 21 points (C/D divisions) wins the division title.

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.

Tiebreaker Format

Should a playoff match result in a tie such that both teams are 1 point away from winning that round, the following 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 vs. 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.

Player Eligibility

In order for a individual player to be eligible to play during the playoffs, he/she must have played in at least 50% of their team's matches during the regular season. Please refer to the latest Weekly Player Stats which includes the current Match Count for each player. Players with a green number are eligible, whereas players with a red number are not.
