"I think I can officially say there WILL be PDGA Leagues next year.
The Motion Passed!
Get your local club to join the PDGA Leagues and you can play Official PDGA rated rounds at your local weeknight action."

Know anything about this Clue?

The league option will be available starting in March. More details still being worked out. Article will be in the next Disc Golfer which is why they had the Board vote to meet the press deadline.

Will there be a fee charged to the player for this service?

$1 per player per week with 50 cents going to the league to cover admin costs, final payouts, course dev or time, etc. and 50 cents to the PDGA. League sanctioning for up to 12 weeks will be only $25. There's also no $10 nonmember fee.

Chuck, KC has like 8 different league nights per week (there are sometimes more than one league on a night)

I'm guessing the $.50 fee is per league night per week? So if we had the same 20 players play 6 nights, the fee would actually be $3.00 to the PDGA per player? (6 nights at $.50 per player per night). Or would it actually be $.50 for the week?

Intuitively, I know what the answer should be, but you stated it differently above (or at least it's open to interpretation), so I thought I should ask for clarification.

I was looking through my old disc golf magazines, and after seeing that 98% of disc sales go to non-PDGA members, the recent push of the PDGA to include more of the casual player is a great push in my opinion. I have several casual player friends that have expressed interest in being involved in the PDGA but they don't necessarily play tournaments. Instead they want something that makes it feel like a community and where they can give something back and see the results. I definitely applaud the PDGA for attempting something on this scale. Imagine the amount of leagues that are going to sign up for this, even if its only a small percentage.

Anyways, this was a long way of saying thanks for the work, I agree with this direction!

Yes, plus $3 per player to the league however the league director wishes to use their portion. When you look at the bigger picture, if a player wants to get 12 rated rounds, in league it will cost $6 (12x$.50/round) plus $25 for league sanctioning. In tournaments, 6 C-tiers would be $12 per player (6x$2) plus $300 in sanctioning (6x$50). So leagues will be a less expensive option for current members to get additional value from membership and also for potential new members who can only play leagues and whose life commitments don't allow them to get out much for weekend events.

So these will count toward your rating? Same rating system used for a weekend event? Just making sure...

Yep, that's the plan. League rounds will have equal weight in your rating as weekend rounds.

I think it will inflate ratings.

Chuck, I'm curious. Was there much discussion about the decision to make league rounds carry as much weight as tournament rounds, and if so, what was the alternative? Also, what is the estimated extra revenue this will generate and what are the plans for that money?

yeah, but that's just like saying you have a big johnson. Then you get in bed with Fausch's Mom, and the truth comes out. :lol: As far as I'm concerned, let people have inflated ratings and convince them that they're better than they are. It's called added cash. :D

Ratings cannot inflate. Ever. There are never more ratings points available than the the average rating of the propagators playing. All that happens if everyone plays better is the SSA of the course that round will be lower than it might be in tournament play on a weekend. But that does not inflate ratings.
