League Rules

OMPL Rules

Definitions:
Match: A complete round of eighteen (18 ) runs played according to match play rules.
Match play rules: Players keep track of their score for individual runs only. Players compare their respective scores after finishing a run. The player with the lower score wins the run and is awarded one (1) point. If both players tie, zero (0) points are awarded for that run. The total number of points awarded to a player becomes their score.
Disc Golf Course: Any course designated as a disc golf course having established pads and targets consisting of baskets or tonal poles. Object targets are not acceptable no matter how well marked.
Home Player: The player designated as "the home player" in the schedule
Table Points: Points awarded as the result of winning or tying a match.

Guidelines for Competition:
Rules of Play:
The Rules of Disc Golf, as defined by the Professional Disc Golf Association, shall govern the rules of play except where these rules are specific to a format other than match play. OMPL rules and regulations shall supercede those of the PDGA.

Courses:
Matches should be played at: Camp Fortune Disc Golf, Kanata Disc Golf Course, Where both players agree, a match may be played at any Disc Golf Course as defined in these rules. The Home player chooses the course to be played, which Tee Pads to use, which hole will be played 1st, and who shoots 1st on the first hole.
What is a disc golf course according to the OMPL?:
Any course designated as a disc golf course having 9 to 18 established individual pads and 9-18 individual targets consisting of baskets or tonal poles that are in a permanent fixture before and during the entire match until the match's end. (If your on hole 12 and someone moves 2 when you played it 10 holes ago, thats fine). See "soccer players in the course rule" for unplayable holes due to the public.

LNF course is exempt from above,

Selection of Course:
The home player shall select a course and designate which pads shall be used for the match prior to the first throw of the match. The same tee pads should be used for all 18 holes. Certain situations will arise like things can will need to be flexible ie league night when there are soccer players, soccer players, etc. If there is no need to change the intended course to be played, then don’t
Note: The final will be held at a course selected by random draw. This will also include which t-pads are to be used. The draw will consist of courses that are playable for the final. All other perks of home advantage apply to the better seed.

Continuation of Play:
Where for reasons not anticipated it becomes necessary to postpone a round after it has already started, players shall be allowed to do so. On resuming a match already started, the runs already played shall be considered completed, and the round shall resume at the next run as though the match were never postponed.
Where for reasons not anticipated it becomes impossible to play certain runs on a course, and where both players agree, other runs may be repeated until 18 runs have been played.
If players inadvertently play from an incorrect pad or into an incorrect basket, and the match is not yet completed, the run shall be considered to have never been played, and the players shall replay the respective run in the correct configuration.
Where, after completing the round and submitting a score, the players realize that they played a run from an incorrect pad or into an incorrect basket, the score submitted shall stand.
Under no circumstance shall play proceed when there is risk of lightning.

Divisions:
Players will be assigned divisions according to the geographical location of their primary residence, but may be reassigned at the discretion of the OMPL Director prior to the beginning of the season. The schedule will change each year so the 2 stronger divisions will play 2 games against each other and the two weaker divisions will play two games against each other. This will result in a weaker division playing one game against a stronger division.

Reporting Results:
The Winning Player shall report the result of their match to the OMPL Director in a timely manner.
The results shall be reported as follows:
Home Player Name: Score
Away Player Name: Score
The preferred method for the reporting of results is through private message to the OMPL Director via the ODGC forum.
Where the winning player fails to provide the score in a timely manner, the tournament director may, at their discretion, penalize the home player by denying them one or more points, but will not otherwise alter who won the match.

Schedule:
The OMPL regular season schedule begins April 1, and finishes August 31st. Playoffs Begin September 1st.
A basic example of the schedule for the playoffs is:
Round 1 of Playoffs is September 1st to 10th
Round 2 is September 10th to 17th
Round 3 is September 17th to 24th
Round 4 is September 24th to October 1st

All matches must be completed prior to the last day of the schedule.
All players shall play a minimum of six (6) matches.
Matches shall be designated to be played according to a specific month during the schedule.
Players must make every effort to play their designated matches before the end of the assigned month. Where a match is not completed prior to the end of the designated month it can be played late, and will be entered into the standings when the player has completed their entire 6 game schedule. If a player misses a game due to dog dying, almost cut finger off, wife gives birth, kid is sick, etc that's cool. Make it up when you can. If a player misses a match due to laziness or something along those lines, they have to play the game late, finish the schedule, then the points will count.

Players may elect to play matches for which the designated month has not yet begun.
Players may play their matches in any order.

Players in default:
Where a match has not been completed prior to the end of the grace period, the match shall be considered in default, and the players who were to have completed that match shall be considered in default.
Players in default may appeal to the OMPL director for an extension to play their match with the understanding that the OMPL director need not entertain such an appeal.
The OMPL director may, at their discretion, penalize players in default by denying them any points for the respective match.
The OMPL Director may, at their discretion, award a win to one player in default for the respective match in default. The award of a win according to this rule will only be made where it is clear to the OMPL director that one of the defaulting players was purposely avoiding a match, while the other was making every effort to arrange for the match The avoiding player will also start the next season with -4 pts.
Players found to be in default repeatedly may be disqualified, or barred from participating in future match play leagues. Disqualification may result in the removal of points awarded to the disqualified player, and points lost by the disqualified player.

Table Rules:
Players are ranked in the OMPL Table according to the number of table points they accumulate. The more table points accumulated, the higher a player's rank.
A match won is worth three (3) table points.
A match tied is worth one (1) table point.
A match lost is worth zero (0) table points.

Table Tiebreakers: (after Pts)
Games Played
Holes Won - Holes Lost
Season Head to Head Result.
Total Holes won

The Last Tiebreaker works like this,
2 teams are tied for 1st and 2nd. (they are called "1" and "2")

Did 1 and 2 both play 3rd ? If yes, The Tie winner is:
The person that earned more points against 3rd..If Still Tied..--(or if both tied 3rd)
Holes Won - Holes Lost in that match against 3rd ..If still tied.
Total Holes Won in that match...If Still Tied....
move to the next best team both played
If both players have not played 3rd, then the this process begins at the top team that both played. If 2 players are tied for 4th, then this process starts at the 1st place team.

Playoffs:
Eligibility:
To qualify for the playoffs each player must play 4/6 matches in their schedule. Players that dont complete the 4/6 games in the schedule will be shuffled down to seeds 16,15,14 and so on to give the better seeds byes. These seeds are used in the final result calculation.

On or near September 1, a single elimination playoff tournament will be used to establish the top eight finishing positions.
The top 14 of the 16 players players will make the playoffs. The playoffs will be a standard 16 team single elimination format. Sees one and 2 get a first round bye. The following rounds WILL NOT BE RE-SEEDED.
1v16
8v9
5v12
4v13
6v11
3v14
7v10
2v15

Seeding:
Eligible players will be seeded according to where they rank in the Playoff Table. This seeding has weight in determining a player's finishing position.

Format:
Playoffs shall consist of a three (3) round, single elimination match play tournament.
Playoffs matches must be played within one week unless other arrangements have been made with the OMPL Director.

The Final will be held at a location chosen by random draw of disc courses in the Ottawa Area. Courses deemed unplayable will not be included.

Final Standings:

How are the payouts being handled for Div 2?

Website has information regarding what I assume is D1 with top 7 payout based on $40 entry and 16? people entered, but what about D2 with only 8 entries?

Just curious... don't know if this has been flushed out yet as I can't find the information anywhere.

Do the higher seeds in the playoffs get home course selection?

I am assuming as much, but did not find that information in the rules.

Combing and editing rules right now. This is the new missed games rule:
I think most of you will like this better:

Games not played on time:
Games which are not played during the specific month they are supposed to be played can be made up.
To make the missed game count towards points totals in the standings the player must have their schedule completed to the point in time they are currently at in the schedule. Games finished for future months cant be substituted to past months.

Example1:
Player misses May Match, Its currently June
April:Played
May: Missed
June Played.
At this point since its currently June if the player plays the May match within the month of June, the missed match once completed will count in the standings. This will count because at that point in time the players schedule is complete up to that point as it’s the month of June. Under the old system for the May match to count, the player must have to complete the entire schedule (April->Aug+anytime game) for the missed match to count. Now for missed games to count, a player has to have their schedule completed to the current month.

Example 2 current month is July:
April: Played
May: Missed
June: Played
July: Missed

At this point if the player made up their May match it would not count towards the standings until the July match is completed also (within month of July). Once the July match is complete the May match is eligible to count.

Also, a formal way for DQing offenders:

Disqualification: Players can be disqualified for infractions under the PDGA rules and for actions that merit disqualification out side of the rules. Depending on the length of the disqualification, when the player returns to the league they return to the lowest possible division and are not eligible for the play-in event. Disqualifications can be for multiple seasons.
If it is in question a player might be DQ’d the process is this:
1. 3 players from the league (not including the TD) are randomly drawn. Names are not given out, and the 3 people drawn wont even know who the others are that have also been drawn.
2. The Td explains what happened to the 3 jurors. If possible names are left out of who the offender is, and who the complainant is.
3. The Td and the 3 jurors decide if the offence warrants DQ, and vote on the DQ. A vote of 2/4 is all that is needed for a DQ, but does not necessarily mean a DQ will happen. If the vote is ¾ or 4/4 , then there is more likely a chance of DQ. A 2/4 vote might result in a DQ, but for a short period of time. (end of season).
4. The TD will hear from the jury its opinions on the length of the DQ, but not necessarily go with the jury’s opinions.

All people (ODGC members and not) have the opportunity to play in the league, but all have the right to lose the opportunity of playing in the league for being a dumbass.
Suspensions can be any length of time.
If a player is DQ’d mid season, previous results that have already happened don’t change. All matches not played are forefitted, and the player as far as playoffs is concerned is treated as if they have played less then 4 games. Missing a few games will not get you DQ’d, but cheating, unsportsmanlike conduct, and bad behavior will.

And the new division's (or lack of)

Divisions/Groups--Schedule:
The process of deciding the pots is:
OMPL div1:
1. Players are ranked in 3 categories against the other OMPL Div 1 competitors. The 3 rankings are: handicap, ODGC Performance Ratio, and previous years PC points. The 3 rankings values are added together and sorted from low to high. (best to least best).
For example: if a player has the best handicap (1st), 2nd best performance ratio (2nd) ,and finished 2nd in PC points(2nd) the previous year, there total ranking score is(1+2+2=) 5. Players are ranked 1-16th based on the total ranking scores.

2. Players ranked 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16 cannot be in the same Group.

3. The players are then randomly drawn into 1 of 4 groups randomly. Each group will have a player that is ranked 1-4, 5-8, 9-12 and 13-16. No group will have 2 players that are ranked 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, or 13-16.

Example…
Group 1:
Player ranked 1-4
Player ranked 5-8
Player ranked 9-12
Player Ranked 13-16
There are 4 groups in total.

4. All names go into a hat and are drawn one at a time. Players are assigned into groups in order of group 1 to 4. If a player is drawn, and cant be put into Group 1 because of rules 2 and 3 (just above) they will be put into group 2. If the same happens with group 2, then onto group 3 then group 4.

5. This process is what makes the schedule. Names are substituted into a schedule template that already exists. The schedule is a balanced schedule and aims to give an equal level of difficulty to all based on the ranking groups.

A new component to the rules:
Off Season Schedule
The off season schedule is made up of these steps:
1. Season ends, Promoted/Relegated players are identified-and moved to new divisions, and players spots are reserved for the next season
2. Reserved Registration: Registration is open for all returning players (and new players also of course can sign up) to claim there reserved spot from the previous year. For example if a player was in div 1, and did not get relegated, then the following season they have a spot reserved in div 1. This must be claimed before step 3.
3. Reserved Registration ends, and registration for all opens. All reserved spots at the beginning of this step are no longer saved for returning players.
4. Spots once reserved for returning players that are not filled by the deadline will be filled by an event in late march (no matter the conditions), So for example, if in Div 1, there are 2 open spots, and 8 people competing in the event, the top 2 finishers will be positioned in div 1. Players with a spot reserved in div 2 from the previous year can play in this event to gain promotion to div 1.
5. Once spots are filled from the early season event promotion/relegation positions for all divisions are identified for the upcoming season.
6. Season Starts.

As of right now, we are at step 2, so reserve your spot for next yearnow!!

Shane is correct, 16 div 1, 8 div 2, and 8 for a div 3 if we can get it. If we do get another 16 I would most likely have a 16 person div2, and setup would mirror div 1.
If we do get 8 for div 2, and a few left over, ill mix the leftovers in somehow.
