PDGA Event Sanctioning Agreement

The PDGA Event Sanctioning Agreement covers all PDGA Tour A, B, & C tier events as well as PDGA League events.

If you had previously submitted a sanctioning agreement and wish to submit changes to your event information, do not submit a new sanction agreement. Please contact the PDGA office and we'll be happy to make the changes for you.

Event Name & Location
Events are classified according to the type of player (professional, amateur, or both) allowed in the event.
Event Dates
We are only accepting sanctioning agreements for 2014 events at this time.
League sessions must be at least 6 weeks and up to 10 weeks maximum with only one round played per week.
Example: Intermediate and Recreational on Saturday, Pro and Advanced players on Sunday
Is this event part of a points series where players are allowed to compete in a division for which they would normally not be eligible (Ex: 940 rated player competing in Intermediate)?
Please list any event notes or special conditions here and include any pertinent information that is not otherwise specified in this form. If you are seeking approval for any rules deviations or if this is an experimental format please provided as much detail as possible,.

Terms and Conditions
As the Tournament Director of record, I hereby accept the terms and conditions of the PDGA Tour Sanctioning Agreement and agree to the following points listed below.
  1. I agree to follow and enforce the Official Rules of Disc Golf, the Competition Manual for Disc Golf Events, and Tour Standards. If any provision of these documents is unacceptable I shall contact the Tour Manager and request a waiver.
  2. I agree to enforce the PDGA policy on the use of alcohol or illegal substances. (See Section 3.3 of the Competition Manual).
  3. I agree that as TD I am a current member of the PDGA in good standing and a certified official.
  4. I 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 for more information.
  5. I agree that for all 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. (Not applicable for events outside of the United States and Canada)
  6. I 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 or the assignment of a player rating. (Not applicable for events outside of the United States and Canada)
  7. I agree that all players competing in events will enter in an officially recognized and reported division. Due to tour insurance liability issues, non-sanctioned or unofficial divisions will not be allowed. (Not applicable for events outside of the United States and Canada)
  8. I 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 or events outside of the United States and Canada)
  9. I agree to pay a minimum of 40% of the Pro field and a minimum of 45% of the Am field as per the PDGA Tour Pay Tables. (Not applicable for Leagues or events outside of the United States and Canada)
  10. I agree to send the completed TD report via email to tdreport@pdga.com for events in the United States and to tdreport-int@pdga.com for International events within the deadlines specified in the Tour Standards. If a TD is unable to submit results electronically they should ensure that this key task is assigned to an assistant TD or local club member with the necessary skills.
  11. I agree to submit all fees (sanctioning, insurance, player, membership, etc.) to the PDGA within the specified time frame as outlined in the Tour Standards.
  12. I agree to submit two TD reports when I have a two day event with different divisions competing on each day.
  13. I 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)
  14. I agree that the tournament director or league director and sponsoring organization understand that it is their responsibility to comply with all local, state, provincial, regional, national, federal and international laws.
  15. I agree that league sessions must be at least 6 weeks and up to 10 weeks maximum with only one round played per week.
