Conference Scheduling and Bids Changes

August 10, 2023 | By John Baker

We are excited to announce an important update to our conference operations that will empower each conference to schedule and manage their own events. This change is aimed at promoting autonomy, flexibility, and increased participation within our college disc golf conferences. In addition, we are thrilled to inform you that starting this season, each conference will be allocated 20 bids to regionals.

Scheduling and Managing Conference Events:

Recognizing the unique dynamics and requirements of each conference, we believe that granting conference leaders the authority to schedule and manage their own events will lead to enhanced engagement and a more tailored experience for participating teams. This shift enables you to consider factors such as preferred dates, course availability, and local considerations, ultimately creating a conference season that best suits the needs of your teams.

We trust that conference leaders will exercise responsible judgment in organizing events and adhere to the principles of fair play and inclusivity. By taking charge of event scheduling, you have the opportunity to shape a conference season that caters to the specific strengths, challenges, and preferences of your member institutions.

Allocation of Bids to Regionals:

In conjunction with this announcement, we are pleased to inform you that each conference will now be awarded 20 bids to regionals. This increase in bid allocation aims to enhance competitiveness and ensure that deserving teams have a fair chance to advance to the regional championships.

With 20 bids at your disposal, conference leaders can determine the criteria and process for awarding these bids within their respective conferences. We encourage you to establish fair and transparent guidelines that consider factors such as performance, rankings, and overall participation. This allocation will not only intensify the conference competitions but also create a greater sense of purpose and opportunity for all participating teams.

As conference leaders, you play a crucial role in shaping the future of college disc golf. Your efforts in scheduling and managing events, as well as allocating bids, will have a direct impact on the success and growth of the sport within your conference. We trust in your ability to make informed decisions and foster an environment that encourages fair competition, sportsmanship, and camaraderie.

We are excited to witness the positive impact of these changes and look forward to a vibrant and competitive season ahead. Thank you for your dedication to college disc golf and for your invaluable contributions to our conferences.
