HOW NDFC YOUTH RANKINGS ARE CALCULATED

The Youth National Ranking Season will run from October 1 to September 30 each year, to coincide with the NDFC Membership Season and NDFC age eligibility

Only NDFC Members will receive ranking points

Separate ranking lists will be maintained for:

  • Junior Female
  • Senior Female
  • Junior Male
  • Senior Male

A member can only count 10 results in their total, based on the following:

  • A maximum of 3 tournaments held with their member darts body (not including provincials or nationals)
  • A maximum of 2 tournaments from each of the other member darts bodies (not including nationals)
  • Players will receive points from only their Provincials or the Nationals, whichever is the highest

As the NDFC Youth Ranking System is new, lists will be published as often as possible, but at minimum every 3 months.
