Collegiate Season 2012-2013


The PDGA and the National Collegiate Disc Golf Union are extremely excited about the upcoming 2012-2013 season and can't wait to see the growth of this wonderful faction of our great sport. Collegiate disc golf is a great vehicle to get our sport to the next level. Last year we had over 100 schools participate in a collegiate disc golf tournament. Our goal is to double that this year. Below is the schedule of Qualifier Events. For any and all information about collegiate disc golf, visit NCDGC.com.

The NCDGC invited back the top 16 finishers from the 2012 National Championships to the 2013 event and also the winner of the First Flight Championships. 19 spots will be awarded via the events below. One spot will be given to the team with the highest total points in the end-of-season NCDGU Rankings. 2 spots will be given away at the National Qualifier Playoffs. One school will receive the Honorary Pete May Invitation. See the Teams page for the list of teams that are currently qualified for the 2013 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships.       

The season will be made up of four different types of NCDGU events. There will be Premier qualifiers, General qualifiers, Playoff qualifiers, and Rankings only events. We have divided the country into 6 different regions. Each region gets one Premier event. The general events were awarded to regions based on number of active teams. We will also be using qualifiers to give out 24 spots for the National Qualifier Playoffs. The NQP is essentially the first round of the championships and is the last chance for teams to get in to the championships.
