SHORT SEASON 2018
KEY RULES AND POINTS:
Must check their emails and phones regularly. If we cannot get a hold of you, we assume captains cannot get a hold of you. Therefore this will play a part in our decision making when matches are not played.
Must know all the rules.
Match time is at 7pm.
There may be weeks off in your schedule that you can use for make-up matches. These must be left available.
If a team cannot make a match they should call the opposing team captain to notify them.
If a team no shows, there is a $50 penalty. Two times results in removal from league.
Each team is only allowed 3 forfeits for the entire season so keep that in mind!
Understand your division’s format. They are listed online. Open and handicapped leagues use the B division formats.
The freeze rule applies in X01 games with 4 scores. A player may go out and win only if their partner’s score is equal to or less than the combined score of the opposing team. The board will not prompt you of this scenario so it is your responsibility to spot it.
Each format has different specifications when a player can bull in or out. Again, it is your responsibility to know what you can and cannot do.
When a team drops out it severely
impacts the entire league. If a team drops out or is removed from the league, they forfeit all money.
It is highly
likely that your schedule will change throughout the season. For this reason it is imperative captains check the online schedule regularly. Our website will always have the most up-to-date schedule.
There is no sub rule in our short season leagues.
CAP Darts uses Spot Marks/Spot Points for handicapping. It’s an awesome way to even out the playing field! The board does all of the calculations for you.
The First Week
The first week we use historical averages to generate players’ handicaps. If we do not have historical stats for you, you will not be given a handicap. Come the second week of league the software switches from historical stats to current stats. Therefore your handicaps for the rest of the season will only be comprised of your stats from this particular league. If you play another night during the season your stats will not be calculated into this league’s handicap.
The first time a substitute player plays they will start equal to the highest player in the game. This is only for the first match. Then, if the player subs again in the league they will have developed stats in the particular league so the system uses their current average.
