Signature & Verification
As the Tournament Director of record, I hereby accept the terms of the PDGA Tour Sanctioning Agreement and agree to the following points listed below.
Agree to follow and enforce the Official Rules of Disc Golf, Competition Manual, and Tour Standards. If any provision of these documents is unacceptable I shall contact the Tour Manager and request a waiver.
Agree to enforce the PDGA policy on the use of alcohol or illegal substances. (See Section 3.3 of the Competition Manual).
Agree that as TD I will be a current member of the PDGA in good standing and a certified official well before the start of the event.
Agree to ensure that each player competes in an official division for which they are eligible, based on class (Pro, Amateur, Junior), age, gender, and player ratings. See the
Divisions, Ratings & Points Factors Table for more information.
Agree that for all SuperTour (A Tier) events, only PDGA current members will be allowed to compete, regardless of division. If a player in question does not provide proof of membership (membership card, soft card, or name on the list of current members provided by the PDGA office) that annual dues will be collected before the player is allowed to participate.
Agree that for B and C Tier events, all non-current or non-PDGA members (with the exception of those competing in a Youth or Junior division) will only be allowed to compete upon payment of a $10 fee in lieu of membership. This $10 fee does not entitle the player to the calculation of points, the assignment of a player rating, or entry into future events. New players who pay the $10 fee are eligible for a $10 discount when registering as a new member of the PDGA. The discount can only be applied to membership registration received during the same calendar year as the $10 fee. TDs are encouraged to provide PDGA membership forms to any player who is not current.
Agree that all players competing in the event will enter an officially recognized and reported division. Due to tour insurance liability issues non-sanctioned or unofficial divisions will not be allowed.
Agree to fill in and distribute the Soft Membership Card provided in the TD package to players who pay their annual PDGA dues at the event. (Not applicable for Leagues)
Agree to pay a minimum of 40% of the Pro field and a minimum of 45% of the Am field as per the pay tables. (Not applicable for Leagues)
Agree to email the TD report via email to
firstname.lastname@example.org within the deadlines specified in the Tour Standards. If a TD is unable to submit results electronically he/she should ensure that this key task is assigned to an assistant TD or local club member with the necessary skills. The PDGA will receive handwritten results at an additional charge of $25.
Agree to submit all fees (sanctioning, insurance, player, membership, etc.) to the PDGA within the specified time frame as outlined in the Tour Standards.
Agree to submit two TD reports when you have a two day event with different divisions competing on each day.
Agree to provide the individual Pro cash and retail value of Amateur/Junior merchandise won in the Scores worksheet of the TD report. (Not applicable for Leagues)
Agree that the tournament director or league director and sponsoring organization understand that it is their responsibility to comply with all local, state and federal laws.
Agree that league sessions must be at least 6 weeks and up to 10 weeks maximum with only one round played per week.
