2019 Short Season Key Points

Captain’s Responsibilities
  • 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. 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. 

Dropping Out
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.

Sub Rules
There is no sub rule in our short season leagues.

CAP Dart Players Facebook Group

We've created a Facebook group named CAP Dart Players. This is a great way to keep up with what is going on in the CAP dart community and be able to connect with one another. We are hoping this is a helpful tool when trying to find a substitue for dart matches or interested players to complete your teams for leagues and tournaments.

Handicapped 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. NEW this year for X01 games it will be REVERSED HANDICAP. This means the weakest player will always start at the normal X01 score. The rest of the players could have anywhere from the maximum starting score to equal with the weakest player. Multiple players on the same number will be averaged together to determine the Team PPD. The dartboard will then determine who deserves the additional points. 

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.
If the substitute has historical stats, it will use those for their first time playing. Then if they sub again, the system will  use their current stats from that particular league. 

If this is the substitute player's first time playing for CAP, 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.

Keep in mind, in order for a substitute player to have a possible handicap, they need to be added to your roster at least one day prior to the match by notifying CAP Amusement.
