2019 Provincial Eligibility List

All zone results are in and those guaranteed to participate in the 2019 Provincial Championship have now been published. If you are planning on participating in the event, please ensure that you review all of the pertinent information and links listed below as well as the tournament poster and Men's and Women's Eligibility Lists. 

Special room rates have been made available at the Edmonton Inn (formerly Ramada Inn) - host venue.

The Women’s Zone Playoffs had a great response with a total of 65 participants. A total of 64 women are accepted into the provincial championship. This includes the 4 players that are eligible to accept their invitation directly to the provincials.

  • Alex Foulds (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List)
  • Crystal Chiasson (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List)
  • Nicki Rolls (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List)
  • Michelle Spicer (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List)

We also had a great response in the Men’s Zone Playoffs with a total of 130 participants. A total of 80 men are accepted into the provincial championship. This includes the 3 players that are eligible to accept their invitation directly to the provincials. 

  • Shawn Currie (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List)
  • Jim Edwards (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List)
  • Logan Crooks (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List) - participation unconfirmed 
  • Mike Dwyer (Top 4 on the April 30, 2018 Ranking List) - gave up bye to participate in zones

The lists of eligible participants shows those guaranteed a spot in the 2019 Provincials. For those listed as PENDING, eligibility is dependent on the number of guaranteed players that show up to participate from each zone. It is important to note that some players compete in the Zone playoffs and although they may have a guaranteed spot, they often choose not to travel to the provincials. This opens up additional spots for zone participants listed as pending and any individuals wishing to buy into the event that didn’t compete in zones. If any guaranteed players in your zone are not participating, this would automatically move everyone up on the list from your zone.

If more than 64 women or more than 80 men show up to register, the following order is used to determine eligibility:

  • All those players listed as guaranteed as well as any pending players to fill the total spots allocated to each zone.
  • If additional spots are still available, these will be filled from other zone participants based on a formula that includes seeding points and current Darts Alberta ranking.
  • Any individuals that wish to buy into the event that didn’t complete in zone playoffs provided space is available.

Anyone planning on participating in the 2019 Provincial Championships should be aware of the following key points:

The 2019 National Championships are being held in Saskatoon Saskatchewan. If you make the team, you will be required to be in attendance from Monday, June 10 through Friday, June 14. There are optional ranked tournaments the weekend prior and the weekend after.

Along with the coaching team, only a total of 8 men and 8 women will be provided funding by Darts Alberta to participate at the Nationals.

As a member of Team Alberta and this being a casino year, the Team Qualifier / Commitment Fee will be $400.00 per person with the opportunity to earn $200.00 back if you work the upcoming casino (Third Quarter of 2019). This fee entitles each team member with transportation, shared accommodations during the National Championship, a team shirt, banquet ticket and their entry fee into the nationals – all paid by Darts Alberta.

The format of play at the Provincials, for both the men's and women's events, is a round robin advancing to a double knockout:

  • Under 32 players – 8 sections of up to a maximum of 4 players with all players advancing to a 32-draw
  • 33 to 40 players – 8 sections of up to a maximum of 5 players with the top 4 advancing to a 32-draw
  • 41 to 48 players – 8 sections of up to a maximum of 6 players with all players advancing to a 64-draw
  • 49 to 64 players – 16 sections of up to a maximum of 4 players with all players advancing to a 64-draw
  • 65 to 80 players (men) – 16 sections of up to a maximum of 5 players with the top 4 advancing to a 64-draw

All details regarding the 2019 Provincial Championships are contained on the poster. Should you have any questions, please contact the DA Administrator (administrator@dartsalberta.com) or the DA Tournament Director (tournament@dartsalberta.com).

Darts Alberta Launches New Dart Scholarship Program

Darts Alberta is excited to announce our new Youth Dart Scholarship Program. The dart shoot will be held on the Friday night prior to the Youth Provincials each year. The 2019 inaugural event will be held on Friday, February 22, 2019 at the Edmonton Inn (formerly Ramada). 

Darts Alberta has committed to guaranteeing a minimum of $1,400 in scholarship awards. That works out to about $1.00 from every $3.00 Darts Alberta Member League membership fee. If additional sponsors and donations are received specifically donated to this program, the awards would increase accordingly. Further details are included on the event poster. 

The award funds will be paid, into a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), in the name of the award winner. This will provide the potential for the award winner to earn 20% more through a Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG), as well as accrued interest. 

If you know someone that’s interested in sponsoring or donating to this worthy program, please pass along the Darts Alberta Youth Dart Scholarship Program package or refer them to administrator@dartsalberta.com
