As more coaches are being trained, a new process was implemented in 2016 and those processes were put into a new Alberta Policy 031.

Darts Alberta Coaches must have successfully completed the NDFC Level 1 Coaching course (online) and a minimum of the NCCP Make Ethical Decisions module. Consideration may be given to someone that is already in the process of completing the on-line course or already registered for the MED course, depending on their other qualifications and experience and the qualifications of other candidates. But it is important to note that if there are a sufficient number of candidates, those without the necessary qualificiations may not be considered. 

Every applicant must complete the Darts Alberta Volunteer Application and submit this to the Darts Alberta Administrator by no later than December 31, 2021.

Each successful applicant must comply with the screening criteria as outlined in Darts Alberta Policy 022.

Each applicant must be available, preferably in person, for the interview process that will be held the weekend of January 15-16, 2022 in Edmonton. Further details will be provided, if selected for an interview. 

Note that when completing the application for coaches, the options are listed under “Appointed Positions”. If interested in both Youth and Adult Coach Positions, please click on your preferred choice in the drop down menu and make a note of your second choice in the Comments Section.

Should a coach have any questions regarding training, certification or the selection process, please contact administrator@dartsalberta.com for more details.

2021 Calgary Open Cancelled

Although the Calgary Pub Dart League was trying hard to reschedule a date for the 2021 Calgary Open, this was not possible due to the number of other NDFC ranked tournaments already scheduled in September. The Calgary Open will return in August 2022.

Special Member Doubles Tournament

A special Member Doubles Tournament is being held on SUNDAY, September 12, 2021 in conjunction with the 2021 AGM and AGM Shoot. This event has all of the same requirements as the Member League Doubles Championships, with the exception of the member league requirement for this year only. Please see the tournament calendar event for full details. If you are uncertain of your membership status with Darts Alberta, contact membership@dartsalberta.com.

2021 Team Alberta Decision

After in depth discussions held by the Board, the following decision has been made:

In light of the recent Government COVID-19 restrictions, if the 2021 National Championship goes ahead, Darts Alberta will be sending the 2020 adult and youth teams. Darts Alberta will be hosting a new Provincial Championship in 2022 to determine both the youth and adult teams, even if the 2021 National Championships is not held.


If any team members have questions, please contact Darryll Walsh (youth@dartsalberta.com) or Judi Brown (provincialdirector@dartsalberta.com). If members have questions, please direct them to Fred Seaward (president@dartsalberta.com).


We hope that as restrictions are reduced or removed that we can all get back to competing in darts at the regional, provincial and national levels. In the meantime, we wish all of our members a safe and healthy holiday season!


On behalf of the Darts Alberta Board of Directors

2020/2021 NDFC Memberships

Dear Darts Alberta members,

The Darts Alberta board of executives understands the struggles we are all having due to Covid 19 restrictions. With this in mind, and the fact that the season was cut short last year because of these restrictions, Darts Alberta will be registering and paying the NDFC for the 2020/2021 membership year for any individuals that had an NDFC membership last year at no charge to the individual. I will be mailing a new card to each of you. If any of your personal information has changed; such as address, phone number or email address please email me at membership@dartsalberta.com as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Angela Hovey

Membership Director
